So why didnt this weapon stay in production after WW2?, Being slightly lighter and having a higher ROF, This would probably beat the M2 series

It could have been rebarelled to .50 Caliber

why rough equivalent? it also shot more rounds per minute —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.220.237.193 (talk) 22:05, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

The weapon was expressly designed for aircraft use. Accordingly, it fitted a much smaller nieche than the Browning. Talking about it as the Browning's rival is conjecture. Ondundozonananandana (talk) 13:21, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

The aircraft mounted units used electrical priming for higher firing rates, ground ones were modified for standard percussion action with a reduced ROF. The M2 and MG131 basically fulfilled similar niches. Aldis90 (talk) 16:30, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Translation mismatch[edit]

The German names do not fit the ammo types. "L'Spur" has to stand for "Leuchtspur", Tracer. A "Pzgr." is a "Panzergranate", armour piercing. "Sprgr", "Sprenggranate", high explosive. "Br." probably would be "Brand", incendiary. According to this the first ammo listed should be "Br. Pzgr.", second one "Spgr. L'Spur" and the last would be correct as "Br. Spgr. L'Spur". "L'Spur" as an abbreviation seems off too, tbh.
