I you haven't seen it, check out the series of videos put on by a collaboration between Forgotten Weapons and C&Rsenal called Project LIghtening.  They compare several prominent WW I light machine guns and when the dust has settled, the Lewis Gun comes out at the best of the bunch (no surprise there, LOL.)

 

Good video and a lot of shooting with some guns you may not see too often.

 

Here's episode 1:  https://youtu.be/TVgkwQTo2n4

I'll just say that quite a few of the results are not as expected.

Watched episodes 1 and 2.  Not surprised at all by the winner or by the last two places but you're right, the placings - and overall performance - in the rest of the pack was unexpected.
