The Browning M1917 HMG has a water-filled cooling jacket around the barrel, allowing it to conduct sustained fire without danger of overheating. With its heavy tripod and water tank, the M1917 weighs over 45kg (100lbs). It is designed for defence, not to charge into assaults alongside the infantry

In its debut test, the weapon fired 20,000 rounds with only a few malfunctions mostly related to poorly loaded cloth belts. The reliability was exceptional, so Browning fired another 20,000 rounds through the weapon with one broken part a broken sear at about 39,500. The Ordnance Board was impressed, but was unconvinced that the same level of performance could be achieved in a production model. Consequently, Browning used a second gun that not only duplicated the original trial, but it also fired continuously for 48 minutes and 12 seconds.
