Were any Vickers made for which the LSP does NOT have the lightening cuts?

Thanks!

I don't believe so from my experience and reading. But, there are strange variations .....

The front of the fussee cover and the mounting rivets rest in that recessed area. If Vickers were to eliminate that machining process they would have had to modify all of the fussee covers for that series of guns - unlike simplifying the right side plate where leaving it flat effected no other parts.

Not that I have seen, and I've been looking at every gun and parts kit I can lay my eyes on for the last 4-5 years (which compared to many here is not long :ROFLMAO: )

I have seen a few guns with flat left and right side plates but they were plate guns made by various C2's. I have no idea if the left plates were also made by the C2's or if they were original. There are a lot of variations out there and its possible that very early guns had non lightened plates. I had a part set for a 1915 built L series gun that had both plates and lots of other parts lightened. Most didn't survive the war....
