    If you haven't done so yet, post your WTB over on 1919A4 dot com.
  2. WTB: MG08/15 bipod and belt loader

    I just got IMA's latest email sales ad. It shows they indeed still have some Turkish aluminum Maxim belts. They have them labeled as "Original German Maxim MG Aluminum Ammunition Belt - 250 Rounds". https://www.ima-usa.com/collections/german-machine-guns/products/original-german-wwi-maxim-mg-aluminum-ammunition-belt-250-rounds?variant=25653069061
  3. WTB: MG08/15 bipod and belt loader

    Original German 08-08/15 belts are offered from time to time on eBay. Most are in poor condition and good enough for display purposes only. Tabbed Vickers belts work just fine after the pockets are stretched out. Sarco and OOW offered loaders for these tabbed Vickers belts in the past. I don't know if they still do. Bill Guiette makes a great belt loader. That said, it's probably better to get some surplus Turkish aluminum 250 round 8mm belts. They are/were inexpensive and can be loaded by hand, no loader needed. IMA sold them in the past for thirty bucks a pop. That was well worth it. An original German 08-08/15 belt loader is rare and very, very expensive. I have no idea about acquiring an 08/15 bipod. Maybe you should post a WTB over on 1919A4 dot com and plenty of Maxim and Vickers shooters hang out over there.

  8. WTK: The "Merle" Thompson 22lr conversion kit.

    No can here for my WH '28, but I can get between 1200 and 1500 rounds through my kit before it needs cleaning. I runs nice and sloooooow using old time Wally Works bulk Federal stuff. I got it years ago and was fit to my WH '28 by PK. He even fit a Numrich magazine adapter and I run only 30 round metal Squire Bingham banana mags. This is a great kit and very reliable.

  13. Sam Pikula's AR-10 book available on Kindle

    I picked up a copy of your AR-10 book around 20 years ago when I stumbled upon a 'Heinz 57' AR-10 built on a Hahn re-welded AI receiver. Your book is a wealth of information. Thank you.
  14. Sam Pikula's AR-10 book available on Kindle

  15. Hensoldt SG542 Question

    It's a regular Hensoldt scope that was OEM sold by SIG in Europe as an option with their SG 542 rifle. It may be worth a couple bucks more than a standard Hensoldt model to a die hard SIG collector. Yes, it is .308 cammed. Do a search for completed auctions on GB and eB to find the current market value. FN marked Hensoldt's are also encountered now and then.
