Could a highly trained Lewis gunner fire a single shot from his gun.

If you look it up on Forgotten Weapons, Ian McCollum delivers his usual very practical and accessible analysis - and in the range session he fires single shots about 3 times in succession with no difficulty. So it's reasonable to think any Lewis gunner reasonably familiar with the weapon could do so.
