Deactivated ZB37/Besa Heavy machine gun:

Deactivated Chzech ZB37 heavy machine gun - also copied by us Brits as the BESA tank machine gun:

Back in the mid `30`s, those impressive Czechoslovakian engineers were at it again, this time building up the ZB37 heavy machine gun, which we then built under license as the more familiar BESA tank machiine gun. Quality of the machine gun was top notch, with a heavy finned barrel rather than water cooled making it better suited to tank mounting and bunker use. Widly used by all sides in WW2, the Germans called it the MG37, but it found its way all the way to the Pacific campaign. latest deactivation specs so they do not cock but safety and trigger movesm as does the charging handle, mag ejects etc. comes complete with EU/UK deactivation certificate.
