  1. This is why I do most of my business on Sturm...

    +1 on Mike Todd here too. He helped me out too. Mike Duke
  2. 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.
  3. 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

  9. I’m looking for a few Hotchkiss articulating belts. Some were 52 rnd capacity made of 16, 3round strip sections with hinges and a 4 round section with a starter tab attached. Or any similar setup. rimmed or rimless is fine. I shoot both. Thanks Mike Duke wireguy77(nospam)@icloud.com

  12. Is the subguns boards down

    Awful. log in and submit email. Now they’re sending spam email trying to sell me crap. Lots of crap clutter and advertisements. Featured this and special that. Highlighted and bannered garbage trying to distract you from finding what you really want. All for a cheap sale. Good job, you finally succeeded in destroying something we all loved.
  13. Vickers 11mm project needs a little help. As time goes on I keep getting a little bit closer to acquiring all the parts to fire my balloon gun in 11mm gras. I have the barrel, barrel cup, booster cage, feed block, belt, extractor and now ammo. The belt was custom made out of a .50cal browning belt. The pockets were sewn up for spacing and snug fit. The extractor was demilled by breaking off the feed lips at the bottom half. I have welded this area up, and I’m currently file shaping them back to useable condition. This is slow work but I will get it perfect with time. I do not have a lock with the wide extractor lifting arms. I need your help finding a few more pieces. An 11mm lock complete would be the best, but to get the project running I need: The wide extractor lifting arms. An intact extractor 11mm aircraft links. That’s it. Any help is appreciated. Mike Duke I have lots of stuff for trade or cash if needed. wireguy77(nospam)@icloud.com
