View Full Version : Information Needed.

September 22, 2013, 12:48
I attended my local firearm and militaria auction on Saturday. I like to watch the bidding and get a feel for current prices. One item had a few folks interested in how much it might sell for . Myself included. When the bidding was over I had bought a CZ BRNO ZB-53!!! Now I need some information on how this beast operates, field strips, where to find accessories etc. If any of the members here can point me in the right direction I would be grateful.

The ZB-53 general purpose machine gun?

ZB 53/ MG37/ Besa. Seems to go by a few designations. Mine is a Venezuelan contract. It has the 309 tripod and AA stand and sights. I have a line on the linking tool with some more belts. It has been converted to semi auto only but with some practice I may be able to hit the trigger 500 times a minute.:biggrin:

Ah, I see your location, now. In the US, under the ATFE determination "once a machinegun, always a machinegun, would make it an NFA only firearm, and would have to be owned pre-1986.
I would look into militaria sites and see if anyone can find a manual. The company known as CZ since 1992 has very little relationship with the outfit that built that beast. :) Good luck - pics would be cool, too!

I wish I could buy guns that come with AA sights.
