    Looks like 30 cal to me. Especially with the empty shells beside the last pic

    Those look like .50 shells to me. Hard to tell without something in the picture for scale, but the barrel looks a little too stubby foe a .30, and that round thing at the base of the barrel could be some sort of turret mount.

    Those are .50 M2s. The giveaway is the number of rivets in lower front of receiver.
