It's been bothering me for the longest time after seeing SC-Texas shooting it at a shoot a few years back. Just curious who brought it, because he wasn't sure either.

It's kind of the holy grail of firearms to me.

IT was a friend of mine's I bet. Are you referring to last year's shoot on dec 31?There are a couple guys in my reenacting unit that have them. ANd one of them was there. Come to an event and you can pop a few rounds through it (first timer's get to do stuff like that, so we can hook em!)

not to be sounding ghey or anything, but that put a big smile on my face. Just let me know when and I'll compensate for the cost of the ammo.

wow, if I can't make it to this shoot I will forever hate myself.

but the upcoming birth of my daughter is more important, and gunny, if I can't make it out would I be able to shoot it once at another shoot or re-enactment in the future?

WOW!!!
Are those transferable or dealer sample?
Link Posted: 12/7/2005 8:08:27 PM EDT
Just remeber- those rounds are approx $1.00 plus per round- anyone who shoots it should offer a donation.

It was exciting to shoot a peice of history.

he let me shoot it, I did offer money but he refused. I kept one of the rounds to add to my collection

SC, I found it, but it was not clear if full-auto was allowed or not. Sub-guns or belt feds allowed?

I'm planning on attending this year but I was not going to bring rifle caliber MGs (well might convert my Stoner 63A in to its carbine version) due to the range length. What's the range dimensions for the belt guns?

BTW I was planning on bringing

MP5
Swedish K
Benelli entry gun
maybe the Stoner 63A in carbine configuration (dont' like changing from LMG config in the field)
Link Posted: 12/8/2005 4:48:44 PM EDT
Its very close range- 30-40 yards

I am toying with CLass III licensing right now, but, can't seem to talk myself into the $1500 licensing fees. I don't see that I'd get enough business to justify it....only it would be fun for me to have dealer samples etc..

I will, someday have an FA tommy. It will be the first FA I buy. I will not waste money on any other, unless I get a really sweet deal on something like a .45 UZI, A real BAR, or an M2 Carbine..though a grease gun would be cool to have too.



Just make sure you don't just get your SOT to enhance a personal collection, that is a big no-no. You must be in business to get those pre- and post-86 DS guns, and ATF is cracking down on those LE demo letters too...

Get in touch with me before the next Hun Farm and I'll tell you what factory ammo to bring along; I will have a Tommy gun, M2 carbine, Norrell trigger pack (10/22), HK53, MP5, Uzi, and M16.

Alright! After a year of trying I finally made it on the list! SC, I will be there as well with UH Sammy and Gunny. Gunny has the German guns covered (MG42, MG34, MP40, MP44, etc) as well as some US (Thompson, M16). I am bringing all my Nam guns (M60, M14, M16, AK, M79 and XM148) and the Thompson. I plan on being there early (by 9) to get set up and help out. Plus I have to leave about 3 or so. Our group should have about 4 beltfeds and I know some others on the list will bring some as well (like last time), so maybe we can hold an area on a longer part of the range to set them up and get all the belt guns together.

Gunny and I have talked and we don't mind if guys run some ammo in the machineguns, but ammo is a consideration. For the German MG's (8mm) Euro surplus is available and in-expensive. 70's production or newer and brass cased is preferred. Winchester white box is fine for .223 and 9mm, and okay in Thompson's (mine does not like it). The speer and S&B run very well in them. Wolf works fine in the AK. For the 60 and other .308, no Indian! Portuguese, Australian, British, and USGI are okay. I will have some links. Don't mind someone running a belt / mag or two, but he belt guns take a beating (M60's eat oprods) and the parts are expensive.

Mongo, please bring the Stoner in the LMG config. if you don't mind. I would love to see it run and would gladly trade some trigger time with you (the XM-148 is about as rare as a Stoner though far less expensive and I have plenty of 40mm)

SC, let us know if there is anything we can bring to help out.

Gunny, better hide Howard. Frank and Jared are coming and they may steal him from you!

If I bring it in LMG configuration (well Commando) will it qualify for the carbine matches
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 6:52:45 AM EDT
I just talked to a friend of mine (and the gunney's) that will be joining us at the shoot as well. He had some nice toys that he is bringing out. He is going to bring his full auto: 1919, BAR, Thompson, M3 Grease Gun, AK, FN-FAL, MP5 and maybe some others. So for anyone who wants to see some cool NFA items this will be a good shoot. The Gunny and I will be bringing about 15 to 20 MG's in our group plus our friends above, Keith always has a truck load, Mongo has a Stoner (still my favorite all time MG) plus lots of other individuals will bring some out as well, so bring a camera!

I've managed to scrounge up 100 rounds of 7.92 x 33 for the MP-44. If you're lucky enough to get to shoot the MP-44, I'm going to have to charge $1.50 per round. That should cover ammo and wear & tear on the weapon. I know that you can get the ammo cheaper, but I bought this stuff way back when and most of it is Original or EG post war.

gunny, since I made the post do I get at least a few rounds (payed of course)?
Link Posted: 12/27/2005 6:09:45 AM EDT
Yes, but I got guys calling me on the phone telling me to save some rounds for them. I think they will go fast!

gunny what about the MP40, winchester white box 9mm okay? How much are you going to charge for that, per mag or such? I just want to make sure I have enough cash on hand that day.

And I have a lot of 8mm but loose, can it be linked for the belt-feds?
Link Posted: 12/27/2005 11:01:30 AM EDT
White Box Winchester 9mm is preferred. No aluminum cased or steel cased. It really likes Hirtenburger +P+, but you probably don't have time to get any!

As far as cost, anything would be appreciated, as I just got two (2) kids through college and one of them married off ($$$$$$$ wedding). The wife and I have been eating beenie-weenies for years now!hat
