That's what the Director wants you to believe.

Only those looking carefully between his right and left hands would see the rest.

ROFL ... I saw that. Looked like a FAL mag to me.

They used one of those in the movie Gene Hackman was in about the FFL. I think it was titled; "March or Die". Done in the very early 70(s) I think. I had forgotten the name of the weapon.

IMA was selling Lewis pans back in 2001 for $75. Had I had the imagination back then, that'd been a cool vis-mod to WECSOG.

I *think* that was a legit Lewis, the hump in front of the trigger guard being the recoil spring housing thing.

IMFDB also notes that KING SOLOMON'S MINES was filmed in Zimbabwe.
