Check out the color photographs and compare it with the .50 Caliber. Ma Deuce" is big, and heavy also check out that feed can in those color photos, and compared to the flexable feed system even the 100 round ammo can is longer and larger for the fifty. I've fired both the M-1919 and the Fifty Caliber. Just check out the perspective of each gunner, and check out the heavy cradle.
