  1. Pretty brass guy. Functions perfect. contact Mike Duke at: wireguy77nospam@icloud.com remove the word nospam before emailing. Buyer pays shipping will trade for US Colt Vickers 30-06 or South African Vickers 308 parts
  2. Future of NFA items

    You don’t have to worry about confiscation. let’s say they attempted it. Immediately everyone knows via social media, news, TV etc. Everyone hides it, claims they destroyed it, boating accident, robbery etc. Now they have to force it. NATO says 350 to 450 million firearms in the US. Soooooo forced confiscation at 1,000,000 per year would take them 350-450 years to accomplish. No way, not gonna happen. I don’t think NFA is what they would go after first anyway. They can’t lock us all up, no prisons big enough. What department would carry this out? Police departments are too busy with real crime to screw around with us. So, who would actually carry it out? TSA? Lol. The money, manpower, logistics and time kills the idea of confiscation. They can stop transfers or raise the tax, then your stuck with your stuff. Just my thoughts. The number is the problem. 350,000,000 - 450,000,000
  3. 7.62x51 vickers conversion

    Hi, sorry I’m late to this. I’ll contact you and we can talk about it. Mike Duke.
  4. Gun is on a form 4 C&R Asking 16K Gun is beautiful. Mount is beautiful. Pm me if interested or my email is at the end of the video. Thank you. Mike Duke
  5. My Vickers in 45-70

    Here’s another conversion I did this year. This was the brainchild of the late Mike Todd. I had just gotten all the 11mm Gras parts to complete my Vickers Aircraft gun. He says “ya know...... if you could get that thing to run 45-70 it would be something.” If you haven’t seen it here it is. Sorry it’s a short clip. By the time I remembered to video it, the ammo was almost gone. Something useful to do with the old 11mm stuff.
  6. Will do, it’s nice to have it running on modern ammo. No more Berdan cases or corrosive primers. I’m really happy with it.
  7. I did a .308 conversion on my Maxim. I was wondering if this was a feasible product. Custom barrel and feedblock rework with cartridge insert and guides. It was way more expensive than I planned. By the end, I was in it almost 3K. I don’t think people would pay this much for a conversion, but my friend is trying to push me to do more. I have also done .308/7.62 NATO conversions for the Vickers and one 1914 Hotchkiss also. What do you think?
  8. I got a recorded message on my phone and an email that a local FFL had a burglary, and to keep my eyes out for stolen firearms. Im not even a dealer I only have a C&R FFL.
  9. Anybody have an old demilled side plate with this guy on it? Or one loose? Colt Vickers ground gun or aircraft gun will work. No British stuff please. Pm call or email please wireguy77(nospam)@icloud.com (702) 325-three6eight5 thanks Mike Duke.
  10. This is why I do business on Sturm ...

    +1 on Mike Todd here too. He helped me out too. Mike Duke
  11. Belt-fed Question

    No shortage of options for sure. I like the Vickers best. No shortage of caliber conversions either. I’ve shot mine in .308, 30-06, 8mm Mauser 7.62x54R .303Brit 11mm Gras and 7mm-08. My Browning 1917/1928 goes from .308 to 30-06. I have a (Balloon Buster) Aircraft Vickers too. Its a common misconception that the barrels go bad quickly. It depends on how you use it. if you aim and fire 5-10 round bursts, you can shoot it all day. This is how some of us old guys shoot anyway. You definitely need a water cooled gun for belt dumps, but nothing wrong with the aircraft Vickers or Maxims.
  12. Hi guys, I’m looking for a 8mm Lebel Bolt complete with extractor and spring. Must be in great, working condition. I will trade you a complete 7mm Mauser bolt in great working condition in return. Somehow I managed to acquire 4 in 7mm and only have one in 8 Lebel. I would like a spare 8 Lebel. Wireguy77(nospam)@icloud.com Thanks Mike Duke
