Anyone know anything about a Browning M2 .50 caliber simulator training gun that runs on acetylene and oxygen?

About 25 years ago I purchased a US military marked Browning M2 .50 caliber simulator training gun. It had two tanks that attached with hoses. As I recall one tank was for acetylene (or maybe propane-was a long time ago) and the other one was for oxygen. It had a spark plug that screwed into the top of the barrel and a solenoid that metered the mixture of the two gases into the chamber, which was fired by the spark plug in full-auto fashion. The cyclic rate was about 600 RPM as I recall.

I bought it for $275 and played with it for a few months, and then sold it to a guy that put it on his jeep and used it for WWII reenactments.

Occasionally I wonder what that thing would be worth today. Anyone know? I have never seen another one like it.
