Our troops could have been armed with the Lewis light machinegun. But thanks to in fighting at the procurement level we ended up with a makeshift untested conversion that was wrought with problems. The Lewis was eight pounds heavier than the sho-sho but worked. It was found still being used during the Korean war by the commies. Probably the first machinegun in a  U.S. airplane too.
