Browning Automatic Rifle M1918 made by Winchester in 1918.

Such rifles saw little use at the end of the Great War but were demonstrably more reliable and portable than their nearest equivalents, the French Chauchat. Chambered in .30-06 Govt, they were very well received by the American units who had the fortune of employing them during the Argonne Offensive.
