Yep the weapon on the front looks like a G.P.M.G. known by us ex army gentlemen, (well I am)as a gympy.If you get one I will teach you how to use it ,if you want,I used to teach it amungst other things.Many years ago i was on the hard at Poole (when the R.M.s were there,) myself and some R.M.s started talking about weapons and talked about the G.P.M.G. and because I called it a gympy, they called me lots of very rude names,the only printable was pongo, if I had , had any fealings they would have hurt them. In them days they used a lot of Halmatic RIBs
