    KEVIN , I know a gent that has a mint perfect transferable police model with the bipod . also a nice complete kit less receiver. we talked about him selling it last year and I don't think anything happened. it will be in the low 30's I believe. if that would work for you let me know and I will hook you up. cheers mike
  7. WTB ZB26 ZB30 post dealer sample/pre May/parts

    mike, I started with the zb series in the 60's and have owned several live guns and more than 100 demilled. most of my 30's came in wooden transit chests with all acc and a spare brl. in ALL the chests only 2 examples had the sectioned wooden spare parts box I believe them to be quite rare and a nice addition. somehow I missed sending it with the few last kits at the SAR show in phx and its available should you like it. the 20 rnd mags came with 3 diff followers. IE; heavy forging with finish machining, and heavy cast. both are equal and the best to use, but these days the first type are quite rare. the 3rd type had stamped steel followers that seemed to work ok but do not feel as smooth while loading. I have close to 100 of the 2nd type , I still use them but could share a few if need be. I use them in my Brens in 8mm and .308. I also have a couple of the small metal 4-mag carriers with leather strap if you like that. I might even be talked out of a couple of the never seen 40 round mags if we do something. I don't believe there are any left with waffenampts. the wood parts/toolbox is $75.00, small metal mag can w/leather shoulder strap $100 , without strap $65.00. all good functional but paint has chips. 20 round mags w/ cast follower $100 ea . if I do the 40 rnd that will take some thought in 50+ yrs I found less than 20 and bought everyone offered for sale I paid as much as $75 in the 60's and got 2 at $200 ea in 81 or 82 so they wont be cheap and its likely you will NEVER hear of them again form anybody. there is also a chance I have 2 -8mm zb-30 barrels. if so they are mint and complete. I will need to confirm them and the search is hard with more than 900 barrels in the rack I had no plans to sell any of this stuff, cuz at 70 I still use and enjoy it all and know whats coming , so don't mind sharing cheers mike
  8. WTS C+R BREDA 30 7X57 NICE !

    DAVID < SORRY TO BE SO LATE , illness launched a new offensive . I was at DR's all day today. ENOUGH EXCUSSES ! I moved to TEXAS in 2010, it took 2 years to get all my collection/ hoard packed and moved. all my friends helped pack and load it in PHX and things were VERY mixed up. I gave EVERYTHING I own but my pants and pickup too the Gent here. since then I have been sorting, checking function etc on what will stay. there are many duplicates and odd examples that wont work for him and that's being sold, with ALL the money going to him also. there are 2 BREDA 30's from that contract in 7x57 both serial no's under 40. I know one is 27 and the other is I think 34 but I cant remember what is what. this gun has been too far down the list to fire yet. In the 70's, DOLPH sent it too PAT to rewat and the reason it got sold is they could not find a FERMATURE. I had one and some brls so I bought it. back in the 60's at a MARANA shoot I put more than 4000 rnds thru one without a stich. ALL the ODD designs attracted me and I bought as many as I could find . I also have several South American 7x57 HOTCHKISS GUNS that will be sold. NORMALLY I would never sell a firearm not knowing what it will do, but the way this gun was done, IT all remained intact except the FERM so I have no fear. its the same as it left the factory. EVEN the BOLT is still matching it was not touched. the only parts changed were the FERMATURE, BARREL, and BARREL LATCH. I just got in from the vault and I still have not located a barrel. the rack has more than 900 and its hard to do. there are 47 MG's in front of it. I bought that transferable FN -240 from MANNY and a new MAREMONT in FEB this year and decided to list guns I KNOW we wont keep to help recover. in 2018, two BREDA-30's in carcano cal with bad rewelded 3 cut receivers they stated would NOT run sold for more than $9000 on GUNBROKER is how I came up with the price. hate to be so long winded , but a simple yes or no would not have given the gun any justice. its all the truth and how it is. I hope it helped answer your questions CHEERS MIKE

  10. 1919A 8mm conversion kit?

    PETE, THANK YOU SIR! actually it was quite easy when you think about it, it's just a matter of simple physic's the real challenge was the links or belts. all I could do is sew the pockets tighter , or open them up. metal links could be bent using a pencil torch for exact heat location.there plenty of surplus .22 cloth Brng belts back then. on the lower recoil calibers the barrel was turned very thin at first, then I just copied the COLT .22 1911 concept with the "floating chamber" to get enough impulse. 38 spl came about because of the cost possible at the time .22 lr averaged about $ 0,70 per 50 rnds but no noise or major impact down range. the 38's cost me about $0.90 per 50 rnds using cast bullets and red dot and did a good job with noise and impact reaction. of course I could always increase it to .357 mag for more. you should have seen the reaction to the line when the full auto .410 w/ 00B went after the RC planes at the shoot!
  11. RL as usual you got it right and to the point at that. at my age I sit here feeling much like I imagine you do. while its much easier to remark about others problems and how to handle them, I find it almost impossible to express why I fear OUR SITUATION and how to handle it without fear of being labled or an investigation target. WHAT I REFUSE TO DO IS DENY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS TRUE REASON'S FORPUTTING SO MUCH EFFORT IN THE 2ND AMMENDMENT! I CAN ASSURE YOU NOTHING "SPORTING" WAS ON THIER MIND !
  12. in my digging I found one of the rare spare parts boxes that CZ put in the bottom of all the transit chests for the 26-30 series and Brens its complete and solid with the top and even the little compartment lid inside . APPROX 16" X 8" X 2" the largest part it held was a bolt and the front of the carrier "gas piston" several extractors all the pins and most wear parts were backed up with the tools to service them. out of more than 200 chest's I only saw 2 of these EVER . for the guy that wants everything "BREN or ZB" its empty but easy to fill. sell for $75.00 landed continental US. AS ALWAYS NO CALIFORNIA OR MASS. CHEERS MIKE
  13. Suomi coffin mags jamming on last 3 rounds

    JULIAN, GREAT ADVISE ABOVE! its always a good idea to have all the spares you can afford, and more important when these spl runs show up. I never had an issue with one as long as the lips were good. I smooth bored several swede k barrels using them with that killer steel bullet CZECH 9mm !
  14. 1919A 8mm conversion kit?

    jeff, all you need is a barrel and the front ctg spacer. Aaron, well known on this board has the barrels, you can reach him at beltfeds.com for that. you can either grind down a .308 spacer or make a simple one that just wedges in out of bulk steel. you put a taper on the first end to go in that fits between the trunnion and the 1/4" round pin . grind the rest down so the bullet has the same clearance your .308 had. its very simple. I may have some spacers and will check if you will drop me a direct email I will see it and remember = myoldiron@outlook.com that spacer is no challenge with simple tools. ACTUALLY, I was the first to make and market the conversion way back in the early 60's so we could shoot up all that cheep WWII german ammo. since then I have made and used conversions in..22lr, 38spl, 7.62x39, 7.62x54, 8x56r , 5.45x39, 7x57, 8x57 and .410 shotgun. the ONLY challenge was the links. altering.30 links was very time consuming and a pain. is you gun full or semi? I may have both conversions complete in 7.62x54 if so the price would be GREAT! good luck! mike
  15. need info RAM LAKE LLC nfa dealer MATHEW TROSI

    MARKS MAN, THANX! same one I got! offered me 6 of the above for $43k by wire tran ONLY. worth an easy $80k+ these days. claimed I could come down , strip receivers and wait for the rest. that's a pretty firm attempt to make it legit. when I refused the wire transfer he did not reply so AGAIN I am sure its a scam
