And you can't really "shoulder fire" an M2, it has no stock, just two spade grips.

Personally I think they could depict a Terminator firing an M2 easily if they just used some wires (deleted in post-production of course) to make it look like they are flawlessly wielding them.
The guy packing one in Nemisis looked like a Pacific Ilander in a suit. I mean the guy was large enough to fire the weapon at a walk and have it look natural. As I said I need Screencaps.

That could be fixed like this (but weight is the problem):

That actually wasn't much of a fix. Units that got the A6s just sawed off the stock, put them back on tripods, and retained the BAR as squad automatic.

They didn't need to saw it off, it's detachable.

And still, putting a stock on an M2 would just be a terrible and impractical idea.

Blame Tales of the Gun. That's where I heard it.

It looks ridiculous on the Russian equivalent.



Can you say ".50 caliber SAW"?
