The Beretta BM59 Mk. IV SAW (squad-automatic-weapon) version, with its 44.48-inch overall length, a pistol grip and a heavy bipod, was also produced for export to Nigeria. Each of these variants of the BM59 featured a distinctive “tri-compensator”—a device combining a bayonet lug, a grenade launcher and a recoil compensator/flash suppressor in a single unit. The Beretta BM59 was a success as a military weapon and was used not just by Italy and Nigeria (the latter well into the 1990s), but also Algeria, Morocco, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Libya, Somalia and Argentina. In addition, the design was popular as a firearm for the civilian market. During the 1980s, two semi-automatic only versions of the BM59 were sold in the USA: the BM62 without “tri-compensator” and the BM69 with “tri-compensator” and bipod. Though they may not be abundant in number, the BM59/BM62/BM69 family of firearms provides an example of the way the spirit of John Garand reached through to the end of the 20th century. The military history of John Garand’s legendary semi-automatic rifle is typically situated in the Second World War and through the Korean War. Even though it lived on through the mid-’50s in National Guard, reserve and training units, the M1’s U.S. service history was over by that time. But, the spirit of John Garand extended beyond the M1 with the M14’s adoption, and it also stretched through to the end of the 1980s in foreign military service, thanks to the development of another rifle that modified some of the basic elements of the M1’s design to become the Fucile Automatico Leggero Beretta BM59 battle rifle. In 1949, Italy joined the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the following year it began obtaining M1 rifles from the U.S.A. through foreign military sales—more than 100,000 of them. But, by the mid-50s the Garand was a bit of a dated design in need of modernization. Battle rifles of that era had developed toward a specific group of features—lightweight, selective-fire, magazine-fed and chambered for the new 7.62 NATO cartridge—and the M1 needed work in every category in order to conform to that standard. Toward that end, an engineer at Beretta named Domenico Salza took on the mission of improving John Garand’s masterpiece, resulting in the Beretta BM59.

Beautiful PORTUGUESE Vickers machinegun with perfectly-duplicated VSM side plate. Fully Transferable. An exceptional example of the British belt-fed machine gun that helped win both World Wars (and many movies). Corrugated steel water jacket. Includes an exceptional example of the MK.IV brass tripod mount, see photos, with matching serial numbers on the Cradle and the Tripod Base. One of the included accessories is an original wood Transit Case. Most Transit Cases were made to house both the Vickers and the Lewis Gun. Uniquely, this Transit Case was made only for the Vickers machinegun. Also, it has excellent felt on the top of the Case; this is missing from most Transit Cases.
The Catco Sterling 9mm SMG submachine gun is constructed entirely of steel and plastic and has a shoulder stock, which folds underneath the weapon. There is an adjustable rear sight, which can be flipped between 100 and 200-yard settings. Although of conventional blowback design firing from an open bolt, there are some unusual features: for example, the bolt has helical grooves cut into the surface to remove dirt and fouling from the inside of the receiver to increase reliability. There are two concentric recoil springs that cycle the bolt, as opposed to the single spring arrangement used by many other SMG designs. This double-spring arrangement significantly reduces “bolt-bounce” when cartridges are chambered, resulting in better obturation, smoother recoil, and increased accuracy. Additionally, the Sterling uses a much-improved (over the Sten) 34-round curved double-column feed box magazine, which is inserted into the left side of the receiver. The magazine follower, which pushes the cartridges into the feed port, is equipped with rollers to reduce friction. The bolt feeds ammunition alternately from the top and bottom of the magazine lips, and its fixed firing pin is designed so that it does not line up with the primer in the cartridge until the cartridge has entered the chamber. The Sterling employs a degree of what is known as Advanced Primer Ignition, in that the cartridge is fired while the bolt is still moving forward, a fraction of a second before the round is fully chambered. The firing of the round thus not only sends the bullet flying down the barrel but simultaneously resists the forward’s movement of the bolt. By this means it is possible to employ a lighter bolt than if the cartridge was fired after the bolt had already stopped, as in simple blowback, since the energy of the expanding gases would then only have to overcome the bolt’s static inertia (plus spring resistance) to push it back again and cycle the weapon; whereas in this arrangement some of this energy is used up in counteracting the bolt’s forwards momentum as well, and thus the bolt does not have to be so massive. The lighter bolt makes not only for a lighter gun, but a more controllable one since there is less mass moving to and fro within it as it fires. The suppressed version of the Sterling (L34A1/Mk.5) was developed for covert operations. This version uses a ported barrel surrounded by a cylinder with expansion chambers. The Australian and New Zealand SAS regiments used the suppressed version of the Sterling during the Vietnam War. It is notable for having been used by both Argentinian and British Special Forces during the Falklands War. A Sterling was used by Libyan agents to kill WPC Yvonne Fletcher outside the Libyan Embassy in London, which sparked the 1984 siege of the building. The Sterling has a reputation for excellent reliability under adverse conditions and, even though it fires from an open bolt, has good accuracy. With some practice, it is very accurate when fired in short bursts. While it has been reported that the weapon poses no problems for left-handed users to operate, it is not recommended without the wearing of ballistic eye protection. The path of the ejected cartridge cases is slightly down and backward, so mild burns can occasionally be incurred by left-handed shooters. A bayonet of a similar design as that for the L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle was produced and issued in British Army service but was rarely employed except for ceremonial duties. Both bayonets were derived from the version issued with the Rifle No. 5 Mk I “Jungle Carbine”, the main difference being a smaller ring on the SLR bayonet to fit the rifle’s muzzle. When mounted, the Sterling bayonet was offset to the left of the weapon’s vertical line, which gave a more natural balance when used for bayonet-fighting. For a right-handed shooter, the correct position for the left hand while firing is on the ventilated barrel-casing, but not on the magazine, as the pressure from holding the magazine can increase the risk of stoppages, and a loose magazine can lead to dropping the weapon. The barrel-casing hold provides greater control of the weapon, so the right hand can intermittently be used for other tasks. A semi-circular protrusion on the right-hand side of the weapon, approximately two inches from the muzzle, serves to prevent the supporting hand from moving too far forward and over the muzzle.
A uniquely original CZ 805 BREN A2 assault rifle replica made under full license by ?eská zbrojovka a.s. by ASG. The receiver was made from metal, similarly to mounting rails, fire mode selector plate and external barrel. The lower part of the receiver consisting of a pistol grip and a magazine socket made from very elastic polymer with an interesting, rough texture. Similar case concerns the stock and the stock slide. In order to manufacture elements that join the replica, such as pins, screws as well as the flash hider or the shell ejection window cover, the manufacturer has used steel, which is always a nice looking addition. The replica contains a gearbox V3 with a reinforced metal skeleton that conceals a polycarbonate piston and its perforated head (during air compression, a seal is pressed against the sides of the piston, which results in its better tightness).Steel gears are mounted on 7 mm bearings. Parts of the entire construction fit very well together and the fact that it is a gearbox V3 allows the user to rest easily and not to worry about the availability of parts or their compatibility.

This Chester County Armory listing is for an extremely rare, fully select fire version of a Heckler & Koch MR223A3 5.56mm NATO transferable machine gun. This model started it's life being imported into the United States as a rare 14.5" HK semi-automatic pistol. The RAL8000 finish was done by Heckler and Koch, themselves, and is not an aftermarket finish. A transferable SWD Lightning Link was then installed by famed Lightning Link specialist John Ciszek of JEC Enterprises. John is known throughout the industry as "The Lightning Link Guy" because of extraordinary work making these custom setups run absolutely flawlessly! His work on this gun is no exception, as it is now a fully select fire setup that runs just like it came from the HK factory that way! This incredible specimen also features the factory correct HK factory front and rear back up iron sights. It also features the correct RAL8000 matching HK furniture and comes with a current generation HK Gen 3 30rd magazine, also in the RAL8000 finish. The host pistol is being offered as new condition, having only been fired by JEC Enterprises during the installation and testing of the SWD Lightning Link. It does note some minor handling-type marks on the exposed section of the barrel in the parkerizaton (see photos) however this was the condition in which it was originally imported. This weapon setup is only being offered for sale complete, and will not be separated by us. This NFA registered SWD Lightning Link is fully transferable, currently on a Form 3. The HK MR223 acting as a host gun will transfer as a standard Title One pistol.
