Italian Brixia light machine guns


New Member
According to Soviet printed sources of 1930-1940s, the following Brixia machine guns have existed:
1. Brixia M5 (M.5) - according to Soviet Milirtary Encyclopedia (1933) it was of barrel short recoil design, 7.92 mm (?) and fed from a twenty round magazine
2. Brixia M1930 - it was of blowback design; 2 pictures related to Brixia M1930 are included below : the general view and operating procedure.
I have found no information on these weapons in the Internet. Can anyone help me with the data concerning these LMGs?
