Huot Automatic Rifle
The Huot Automatic Rifle was a Canadian light machine gun developed during World War I, based on the Ross Rifle but using a gas-operated mechanism and a drum magazine to produce a portable select-fire light machine gun which would be cheaper to manufacture than the Lewis Gun. The Huot was developed from 1916 to 1918, undergoing many refinements during that time to increase reliability and reduce weight. Unfortunately, by the time it was ready for service, the war was over and the weapon was no longer needed, and the entire project was cancelled in the postwar years. Only four prototypes are known to still exist, numbered 1, 2, 4 and 5: it is unclear what happened to 3.
- Caliber: .303 British
- Fire Rate: 475 rounds per minute
- Feed System: 25 round detachable drum magazine
