I'm not a MG guy, so maybe I just don't know where to look, but other than ebay listings from Greece, I can't find any for sale.

 

A friend with a Vickers is being kind enough to bring it to a gathering at our place, and I'd like to be able to send him a belt and a case or three of ammo for his trouble.

do you want .303 belts?  the brass tabbed early style? or the plain canvas later belts? if not .303 there are many other options to consider. the tabbed belts can be up to $150 at times the cloth tables are all over the place from $20/ $50 ea.  IF not .303 there are many other options to consider

Yes, it's 303.  Tabbed would be my preference, but plain cloth would be OK, I think

Thanks.

the plain belts work just fine once you learn how deep to place the rounds, its a big help to have at least one tabbed belt for that purpose. after loading, you just need to handle the un tabbed belts with care. I put my loaded belts wound in a 5 gal bucket with straight walls and a Masonite divider between levels. you should find what you need on  G-brk most any time, just watch the pricing its all over the place.

Thanks again.  There don't seem to be any on GB right now, but I'll keep watching.

 

If someone here has one to spare, let me know what you need for it.

I have two Australian brass tabbed .303 belts. They look like in new condition. I will sell them for $125 each, and I will pay for shipping.

Thanks, Alex.  I should have posted earlier -- another member here has me covered.
