Deactivated light machine guns:



Deactivated light machine guns:

Ah, the LMG light machine gun, backbone of land based army doctrine since the turn of the last century. Forget the Maxim, though they are aweome, you need wheeled carriages and sleds and multi man teams to operate them. Light machine guns are man portable, deployed in the squad with one or two man teams, fired from prone, the hip, shoulder or trpod, they are all about versatility. Thing is, there have been a lot of them and they were not always good (wasn`t until after WW2 when everyone basically copied parts of the MG42 that things really improved). Technically, the Danish Madsen was the first proper LMG, certainly that worked - was still held in reserve stock until the mid 1990`s - but some attempts were real bad - the French Chauchat, various Jap examples come to mind. This page has various examples that we only every get the odd example of, so we pop them on the same page.

This one is in breat condition, original enamel finish, early type bipod, still has its adjustable rear butt foot and it strips, cocks and dry fires and comes with correct certificate of deactivation.

Deactivated Czech VZ57/59 lmg:


Deactivated Czech VZ57/59 complete with side mounted box feed and ammo case with inerts :

Wow, here`s an awesome post war mid `60`s Czech VZ57, chambered for Mosin rather than Nato 7.62 which makes it rather rare - though we particuly like the neat clip on ammo feeder - both a 50 round box feed and 200 round box with some inerts are included. These late model model VZ`s have the coolest cocking mechanism - no external rod, you turn the gun upside down, pull a catch, pull the trigger and slide the whole grip forward then all the way back to cock - how cool is that! Finish is excellent, classic postwar Czech grey finish in excellent condition, strips, cocks and dry fires, Comes with correct certificate of deactivation.

Deactivated French Hotchkiss M1922 lmg:


Deactivated French Hotchkiss M1922 light machine gun:

Ah, the French WW1 lmg, the really rubish Chauchat, was just a disaster. So, immediatly post war they get around a table and come up with a new design, the Hotckiss 1922, who needs a mag with a massive whole in the side under the gun that lets in all the dirt when you can use a side fed 20 round stripper clip instead - that will keep the dirt out... the design wasn`t that bad, or good, definatly better than the Chauchat and they saw plenty of action in WW2. This one is in good overall condition, Turkish contract model, still has its very nice if somewhat feeble bipod intact and the forward grip for firing from the hip, whole this is super rare plus it strips, cocks and dry fires, Comes with correct certificate of deactivation.
