DESCRIPTION: Bet you don‘t have one of these...And yes, it’s a camera. It’s an old Japanese training gun that doesn’t shoot bullets…It shoots 120 roll film!
It’s a copy of the Lewis machine gun that was used on airplanes during WWI and also had some use in WWII. It was used to train machine gunners how to aim. It shot a picture of exactly where they were aiming to help them learn. The weight and operation of the “gun” are just like the real one. It‘s pretty cool...pull back the lever on the side, take aim and pull the trigger. It has a built in frame counter that works. The lens it sports is a Tokyo Togaku Toko 286.6mm 1:11. Not sure what the shutter speed would be. And all the accessories, including the original box are with the “camera“, including a lens cap. The only thing missing is the “dummy” bullet magazine that sets on top the gun.
I purchased this from an individual who inherited it. I don't expect anyone here would actually be interested in buying this, but I thought what the heck. It really needs to be in a museum probably.
CONDITION: Amazing condition for it‘s age. And it works. By that I mean, it cocks the shutter, advances the film and fires with the trigger. The lens looks like it‘s a little cloudy from age, but I bet it will clean up fine.
PRICE: $ 2000.00 + Shipping (very heavy).
Local pick-up available too. Inquire.
