Not actually a C&R but it sure does have the history and heritage.

Nice,^^^^^^^^^^^^ I think it is C&R. C3 machine guns can be C&R as long as they are > 50 years old.

I have the same problem myself, most of my shooters have optics on them.

Does that mag also fit in a Izzy DROR LMG?

I'm looking for a pattern 1 mag for the DROR.
Like this:

https://www.google.be/search?q=Dror+...jpAJA6OpzlM%3A

If you know any, PLEASE contact me. My brother has a working selective DROR but no mag

Although simlilar in design and function I do not think this mag would work.
I think the mag for the DROR is patterned after the M1941 Johnson machine gun magizine.

Here is some of the least embarassing crap I have.

As you can see, both are as beaten up as the usual Chinese T53. Probably worth as much for they sure are not in the same league as what have been in this thread. But, I like them; they have personality, kinda like my FAL.

hansellhd, whenever you have time please grace us with pictures of what representatives of these two guys ought to look like.

Martini-Henry, which I found is not allowed for cowboy shooting even though it fires a .45 cal bullet similar to a 45LC.

It is a shame about the M954 since I have a question on the ejector.

Replaced my Egyptian FN49 for one with original wood and no import mark... and it came with a bayonet... and I made $50.




Finally got myself a Daewoo. K2 marked, circa 1988 methinks.

A new addition to my Battle Rifle collection, the SIG AMT.

















It was a 10 year wait on this one but it was worth the wait. 1 of 3000 imported into the USA.

Wow HDH, she looks almost flawless man! What a cool rifle! Did you wait for this one specifically, or just to get one of the type?

1916 I. Gaztanaga Automatique "Destroyer" 7.65 cal. Ruby-type pistol

Built in the Eibar region of Spain in 1916, the pistol was first issued to the French Army in World War One; it was captured from the Wehrmacht in the spring of 1945 by my late father. Where it spent the intervening years is anyone's guess...

I think mine has "Vilar" on the slide. Had to have one for the collection because they seem to show up in someone's hand for any conflict in Europe.

Dayum,
Didn't think anyone else would have one of these.

Was going to put mine up for sale, but figured the cost of shipping and FFL transfer fee would be more than the thing was worth.

I actually like shooting the Galesi. Sounds a lot louder than it's size. Extracting the magazine on either one isn't easy though.

Sometimes you get lucky...and I was lucky to get this 1938 for the price I did.

Ohhhhh, a Roth-Steyr. That's what I love about many of these older firearms....so intricate, finely made by hand. The fit and finish is outstanding. They were works of art.
