The machine gun was already in 1904, used in the russo-Japanese war and had a lot of modifications according to the needs of the customer and the development in the world. Just a caliber in which it was produced was reportedly more than ten. Surely it would be worth to describe the genesis of this interesting weapon. I managed to find a photo of this interesting weapon. The first is a machine gun from the production to russia in the caliber of 7,62 mm (perhaps from the Russian legions) focený in the military museum, the second picture is from the net and it also shows the older model with segmented reservoir.
