Not after you have carried it any distance Paul. They are nice though, a great excuse to dig in and stay put.

Lugging it depends on your Number - No1 carries & sites the Tripod & fires the beast, No2 carries the Gun & helps load it. My WWI group has 2, 1 WWI with fluted barrel casing, 1 WWII Lithgow' plus a Lewis Gun
