  6. Czech ZK383

    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
  9. WTS C+R BREDA 30 7X57 NICE !

    DOLPH GOLDSMITH SOLD THIS LONG AGO AS A REG'TD DEWAT. PAT TOMLINSON IN AZ, BROUGHT IT BACK TO LIFE AND ITS STILL A C-R. it was an old dewat with little done. the barrel was plugged, the fermature tacked to the trunnion and the barrel release was welded closed. so the receiver was not harmed in any fashion. the old barrel lock / Fermature was replaced and the tack weld inside the trunnion was polished. TYPICALLY THESE HAVE A BAD RAP AND THEY NEEDED A CASE OILER TO RUN BECAUSE THE DESIGN LACKS ANY PRIMARY EXTRACTION.THAT WOULD NOT APPLY TO THE 7X57 CALIBER GUNS! UNLIKE THE CARCANO ROUND THE 7MM HAS ENOUGH TAPER TO FUNCTION WITHOUT THE OILER AND THEY WERE OMITTED. this gun is VERY PRESENTABLE with a strong original finish, no evidence of rust or pitting and has a unique "curb appeal" that gets a lot of attention when out. they are a marvel of machine work never to be seen again and examples of this work is very rare at the price level. the wood has typical dents but no MAJOR DAMAGE with the normal dark oil stains after more than 80 years in the grease etc . its on a form 4 in TEXAS buyer pays all fee's, 1/2 down ok with bal on approval. price is $9500.

  11. 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!
  12. 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 !
  13. 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
  14. 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 !
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. I just received an offer to buy some varied NFA weapons at very attractive prices. I have never heard of these guys and they claim to be going out of business in GA. any input would be a BIG HELP the sooner the better. thanx mike his license shows the name MATHEW TROSI
  18. WTS C+R- MADSEN "A" 7X57 CHILE CREST

    KENS # 1 gun was FANTASTIC and I had my suspicion he was mistaken about the sample part because they would have been released much later when they HAD to be ground. if so you made a very rare coup these days! I will close with many forms got sent out WITHOUT the red stamp or restricted check.THE ONLY WAY ONE CAN BE ABSOLUTLY SURE IS A NON DEALER, INDIVIDUAL TRANSFER. I have asked for a "letter" clarifying status b-4 a transfer many times and they say it will ONLY be done if the gun is shipped to tech for an exam?
  19. A VERY RARE early import completely original excellent MADSEN medium machine gun from CHILE with the CREST intact, never cut , messed with completely as shipped from DENMARK and sold as surplus BEFORE they required all the CRESTS , property marks to be ground off when sold. some refer to these as MODEL "A" but I have never seen any publication or document stating a model number of any kind. the ONLY other transferable examples I have seen were defaced severe or cut rewelds. these guns are smaller than the 8x57 or .30/06 contracts . the magazines will not interchange but most internals will IE: bolt , carrier, lower and all accessories. barrels must be shortened. included is a decent ground tripod with anti/ aircraft arm, 4 leather pouches with 5 like new mags each, 2 metal mag chest with 4 like new mags, more than $3500.00 in mags alone! RARE rear MONOPOD in carry case, ONE RARE complete anti/aircraft sight set in leather pouch fits this model only, one NOS spare 7x57 barrel in the wrap, one .308 barrel assembly complete (needs final length adjustment) several different sized booster cones to adjust rate of fire, bipods, wood , top covers and enough small parts to keep her running for thousands of rounds or years to come. while I have seen a few "samples" this is the most complete, unground , excellent condition package of ANY category observed in more than 45 years in the trade and a true gem for any collection that's very rewarding to shoot or just plain sit back and dream about what its seen. VARIATIONS of the MADSEN were used by more country's than any other machine gun I know of including the ubiquitous MAXIM ! IMPOSSIBLE to UPGRADE and most likely the ONLY one you will ever have a chance to own. It runs perfect with every thing I put in it and 7x57 is abundant or easy to load with reasonably priced components easy to find. just not enough room or adjectives to describe this and ANYONE can own it. what more could you ask for? this one I hate to see go and I may not be able to keep it posted as I think about it and all it has to offer. we are out of room and need to make adjustments or it would not happen, so if you have ANY interest , you best act FAST. OFFERED at $22,750.00 1/2 DOWN OK fob 78006 Texas on a form-4 buyer pays all fees mag count correct now and a couple more pics . CHEERS MIKE.
  20. WTS RUSSIAN C+R PPS43

    THIS IS A NICE EXAMPLE OF AN EXTREMLY HARD TO GET RUSSIAN PPS-43 SUB GUN IN 7.62 THAT REMAINS A C+R. it was previously a registered dewat. I filed a form 1 to activate it and following its approval restored it to firing condition. the barrel was plugged and welded to the trunnion. the trunnion was removed a new old stock original chrome lined barrel installed using all the original spot weld locations for the trunnion. the bolt replaced and the entire weapon refinished. it runs like a top. these are hard to find in ANY condition and have always been seldom offered for sale. its on a form 4 in TEXAS and waiting for a new home. included are 3 mags in a canvas mag pouch,and the original functional matching no bolt price is $24,000.00 1/2 down ok and buyer pays all fees. trade for a GREASE GUN only considered it just did not fit in the collection and needs to go. cheers mike
  21. THIS EXAMPLE WAS ABSOLUTLY UNFIRED WHEN IT LANDED HERE! PERFECT IN EVERYWAY AND COMPLETLY ORIGINAL. there was a time when I had to have everything BRITISH. so when it surfaced I bought it and it just sat on the wall. since then it has fired 3 mags of 30 rnds to get the feel and that's IT! so if you want one of these tanks and like the BEST AVAILABLE this is your cup of tea! you will not find a nicer example anywhere. sale includes new orig spare barrel, 3 choice original 50 round mags. several more available to the buyer well under market if done at the same time. its on a form 4 in TEXAS and buyer to pay all fees. price is $18,250.00 pics coming later, if interested DONT WAIT FOR THEM its exactly as I stated.
  22. WTS C+R- MADSEN "A" 7X57 CHILE CREST

    REDUCE AND BUMP
  23. PRICE REDUCED WTS C+R MG-34 PERFECT!

    REDUCE AND BUMP
  24. here is a chance to buy most likely the newest high condition mg-34 you or anyone else will ever see. everyone that's looked at it calls it unfired! not a safe queen but a packed in the box for years queen. DOT-43 . when I put it together for the pics I caused a lite scratch in the top cover but the bluing is still in the scratch. the feed tray has a slight rub maybe from the factory test fire. other than that in all other area's that have moving parts there is 100% blue the gun is MATCHING except the barrel. it is the ONLY TANKER version I have seen with all the GROUND PARTS MATCHING ! there is one small dent in the side and middle of the butt stock and that's it. price includes a standard WWII NAZI LAFETTE mount not as nice as the gun, just normal issued condition. no container for ground kit when removed. buyer pays all fees. its on a form 4 in TEXAS. $39,500.00
  25. Suomi coffin mags jamming on last 3 rounds

    JULIAN, you mentioned they were in a M11 w a LAG conversion. if the speed is over 600 rpm I would suspect that's the reason , there may be a slight amount of roughness not present in others that you could polish out.
