機銃照*
kijuu shou*
Machinegun light [like a lamp, not weight]

I cannot understand that last kanji. All kanji look to be copied from a Japanese data-plate by a non-Japanese; then again, it might be a stylized way of printing.

Thank you so much Guy! I completely understand and agree with your stated opinion above.

Thank you for the extra effort to decipher the real meaning despite the additional challenge thru amateur authorship
