  1. Help ID - Lewis Drum Loader

    Sure looks like a production example due to the fine castings, or a pre-production prototype. Like so so many oddball firearms, accessories and devices that were privately produced with the intent of selling the product to the military that were never adopted, my guess is that this is also an example. Seems way too big and unwieldily for an MG squad loader but possibly a field armorer's loader for aircraft or possibly for shipboard use for the 97 round drums. I would assume WWI. Beautiful machine.
  2. Are full auto Suomi M31s rare?

    My goodness, Mike, kinda jumpy aren't ya?. I especially like the "…most in the know…..". LOL. Yes, there is a good sampling of 38a's in the NFRTR compared to many other SMGs, but that doesn't mean that they are always available, in my experience. Lack of availability does not mean scarcity in the NFRTR. And, they have not really been that popular over long term compared to many other smg's, in my opinion and experience, but the prices tend to be comparatively affordable these days so there is more interest now than ever before. Many came into the country during the DEWAT retail years and I've reactivated several in the past year, not having done many for a long time, so that's a good sign.
  3. Are full auto Suomi M31s rare?

    Factory Finn M31s very scarce in NFRTR, with most being pre-May samples. I know of a half a dozen over many years, with four confirmed. Danish and Swedish Suomi pre-Mays also in the NFRTR with a few factory original transferables. As noted above RIA just sold a Finn M31 at auction with a hammer price of $19,550. That is a reduction in value form years back. 38a's fairly common and not overly popular so prices are not dreadful. FWIW

  7. WTS: Colt Water Cooled M2 .50 Cal - Pics

    Thanks for the thread gauge pic and it is very nice, as well as unusual, that a 52a has the original barrel and extension. Good looking gun. And yes, it is clear that the pic was probably used for lack of one showing the 52A but the later versions of the WC .50s, including mounts are very different in many significant ways so it is quite misleading and confusing. FWIW

    The pic is not of a 52A.

    Are the bbl threads 10TPI or not? 10TPI are the later thread specs not the 52A and the bbl extension will also be later mfg. The 52A spec is 13 TPI if I re call correctly so the bbl extension will also be original.
