In reference to its M2 nomenclature, the Browning M2 has been referred to as the "Ma Deuce." From the 1930s to the present, the .50 caliber machine gun was widely used as a vehicle weapon and for aircraft armament by the United States. It was used extensively during World War 2, Korean War, Vietnam War, Falklands War, Soviet-Afghan War, Gulf War, Iraq War and the Afghanistan War in the 2000s and 2010s. It is a primary machine gun used by NATO counties and by several other countries as well. Crafted by John Moses Browning towards the end of World War 1, the M2 has been in use longer than any other firearm in U.S. inventory, besides the .45 ACP pistol.
Made of 14 ga. steel, and all welded construction, Miltech Machine Corp manufactures this .50 caliber replica strictly as a yard ornament.
"One of the coolest yard ornaments I've ever seen!"
"It's a real eye catcher when placed in the front lawn. I've adapted a hose and nozzle to the barrel of mine and use it to water the lawn."
"We put a plug inside the barrel and shoot roman candles out of it on our 4th of July parties!"
