M240L barrel dimensions question

Location:

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone here with a  m240L short type barrel, could help me with some measurements.
I plan on making an display replica, hence I am interested in the measurements.

I would like to know if the barrel is the same from the rear of the barrel to the front end of the gasblock, as a standard m240B barrel.

And the dimension around the barrel between the gasblock and front sight, it seems smaller on the Lima barrel.

And the lenght from the front end of the gasblock, all the way to the tip of the flashhider

 

If I were unclear please let me know so that I can be more precise.

 

Kind regards

JOHAN, I am always glad to see and help anyone interested in these things for what ever reason. I am sorry to say our ability to own them is under a very serious threat in the NEAR FUTURE. as it stands right now, they have caused the cost to hit catastrophic levels. I had 2 items remaining in my BUCKET LIST, THE 240 AND A FORD GT-40. there are only 10 examples of the 240 in the system that an individual can own . I will get back too you when the brls arrive  CHEERS MIKE

I realy started to like these guns when I was in the army 12 years ago, had the Fn MAG back then, and just loved it ! Amazing shooting experience ! And a very nice weapon in terms of looks !

Also enjoyed the fn minimi ! A very compact and nice looking lmg !

What other nice guns/ lmgs do you got in your collection ?

JOHAN,  I have no heirs and hooked up with a kind gent n TEXAS that talked me into moving on his ranch, and building him a collection of military arms and machine guns. this has been my main focus since 1959 and I had access to some choice goods as a underground cash employee of SAM CUMMINGS . during the 60's and 70's he was the largest legitimate arms dealer that focused on non govt sales mainly via his co INTERARMS. because of that exposure I was also accepted by most all the major surplus dealers in the USA . needless to say I managed to hoard some pretty rare goods and built a decent personal collection for myself. I concentrated on SHOOTING AND HELPING OTHERS SHOOT MORE! so I pioneered the caliber conversions for the Browning MGS and all other systems I could at the time. when I moved here, I gave my entire collection to this one and have been "adjusting" it to fit him with new goods while disposing of some of the more complicated arms. we are not "dealers" so have no access to "samples " , all are transferable which makes many of them almost unique in the trade. currently we have;                                    CZECH-ZB-37 7.92 , GERMAN-MG-81-ZTWIN,M-15wc,MG-15ac,MG-34, MG-42, MP-34, MP-40, ALL HK VARIANTS. RUSSIAN 1910 MAXIM, SG-43, 1952 MILLED AK-47, 1965 AKM. BRITISH BREN-303, BREN-762 ,LANCASTER 9MM, VICKERS-.303. BELGIUM all ex army issue FN-FAL H/BRL, FN-FAL-PARA, FN-FAL STANDARD RIFLE. FN-49,FNC-PARA +CARBINE   ISRAEL- FND-A1 7.62,VICKERS 7.92, USA-M2 50HB,1917A1,1919A4, COLT THOMPSON,M-60 M-16. we also have several of the sub guns built here in the 1980's and work them hard  the premier piece in the collection is most likely the only transferable example of the NAZI LUFTWAFFE MADSEN BELT FED 7.92 MG in the US. it fires in excess of 1400 rpm. of course it will be forced to the #2 spot when the M-240 arrives. the spare barrels I ordered will be in next week and I will send you all the measurements you needed. as you can see we like belt feds and ones that can be fired a well. we have a decent range set up on the ranch and try use it every couple weeks. all I do is work on them and search for parts. hope that was what you wanted to know? mike
