This Chester County Armory listing is for a rarely seen P.A.W.S. Inc. Model ZX-7 .45acp transferable sub machine gun. Also known as "The American Sterling", this rare and uniquely US-made ZX-7 serves as a fascinating homage to the venerable British Sterling L2A3 sub machine gun. Always enamored with the craftsmanship and design of the British Sterling, the ZX-7 was built and created by gunsmith and Class 2 manufacturer Bob Imel at his company, Police Automatic Weapons Services, in Salem, OR in the mid 1970's. Built from the ground up, Mr. Imel re-created the beautiful lines and wonderful reliability of the L2A3, but with his own unique redesigns and improvements, to make it a truly Americanized version. Of course, the improvements started first and foremost, by offering it in the American of all American calibers...the .45ACP. For an in-depth analysis of the differences between the British Sterling L2A3 and Bob Imel's creation, check out Ian at Forgotten Weapons and his wonderful video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKk9Ss6RJ80 Utilizing easy-to-come-by M3 Grease gun magazines, the ZX-7 functions amazingly well, with a cyclic rate of around 750 RPMS, making it markedly faster than the M3 Grease Gun and more inline with a 1928 Thompson. Robust and controllable, the ZX-7 in .45acp was only made in very small numbers by P.A.W.S. as a transferable SMG. Some counts have them as low as 20 or 25, as the 9mm version (the P.A.W.S. ZX-5), was made in significantly greater quantities. This specific model is serial number 20. This transferable sub machine gun is in excellent mechanical, as well as cosmetic condition. The internals do not note any wear and the bore is bright and shiny with crisp and clean rifling. The fire controls are in excellent condition, with solid placements on the selector controls in both semi-automatic and full-automatic modes, as well as a positive safety lockup. The original crinkle-style finish employed by Mr. Imel is in excellent condition, with only a few minor marks on the entire weapon. The metalwork is excellent, with no dings, dents, gouges, cracks, etc.. Two 30rd magazines are included with the purchase. This rare and unique weapon is currently on a Form 3 for easy transfer, with "P.A.W.S. Inc" listed as the manufacturer and "ZX7" listed as the model.

ENTER THE AMERICAN 180 The Casull’s successor, the American 180, weighs less than a stripped M16A1 unloaded; most variations are described as being well made and reliable. Original magazines carried 165 or 177 rounds, though larger-capacity drums of up to 275 rounds are still in production today. The 275-round drums do effectively occlude the weapon’s sights, however. E&L Manufacturing, the current producer of American 180 drums, includes an elevated front sight along with the the first 275-round drum you buy. The open-bolt mechanism of the American 180 incorporates a series of grooves in the sides of the bolt that very effectively channel dirt and debris out of the mechanism. The British L2A3 Sterling submachine gun sports similar grooves. The non-reciprocating charging handle is oriented on the left side of the receiver, towards the rear, so that the bulky drum magazine does not interfere with its operation. The drum chassis spins on top of the receiver as it empties. There is a captive screw underneath the forward aspect of the receiver that allows the gun to break down quickly into two handy components. The stock removes with the push of a button in the manner of the M1928 Thompson submachine gun. Particularly with a short 9-inch barrel in place, this makes the American 180 easily packable. The assembly and disassembly processes are relatively straightforward and easily mastered. ADDITIONAL 180 DETAILS The magazine release is fairly intuitive and simple to manage, though the bulky nature of the pan magazine does produce a cluttered sight picture. The ergonomics of the stock and pistol grip are better reasoned than those of the Thompson that obviously inspired them. Overall, the American 180 is a comfortable gun to run. Semi-auto versions of the American 180 have been offered in the past, and these guns come up for sale occasionally on online used-gun forums. While the practicality of a 10-pound semi-auto .22 packing 177 rounds on board might be questionable, there is no better tactical tool should you ever find yourself attacked by a battalion of malevolent chipmunks. I’ve frankly bought guns for dumber reasons. The magazines are a holy pain to load, and the American 180 runs through ammo as politicians burn through other people’s money. E&L Manufacturing also offers a magazine loader that renders this chore a bit less onerous. A single mechanical spring-loaded winder can be used to power multiple magazines. SO WHAT’S IT GOOD FOR? The American 180 was formally adopted by the Utah Department of Corrections, and it was undoubtedly intimidating when wielded from a guard tower at their state penitentiary. There are rumors that the Rhodesian Special Air Service used a few of these novel guns operationally in Africa. However, humping the African savanna with one of these hyperactive little buzz guns must have been a treat. The nature of the design demands that it be fed high-velocity ammo, so suppressed versions remain fairly noisy. Regardless, the company’s marketing efforts were compelling, and quite a few examples were indeed sold to local law enforcement agencies. Many of the guns available today were traded out of police arms rooms over the years. REAL-LIFE SHOOTOUT I could find but a single detailed anecdote involving the operational use of a laser-equipped American 180 by cops in a real-life shootout. In November of 1974, Officers Mike Gilo and Gary Jones of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department attempted to subdue a pair of evildoers driving a Chevrolet Camaro. As the driver of the Camaro accelerated in an effort to escape, his foolhardy passenger produced a handgun and fired at the officers. Gilo responded by unleashing a roughly 40-round burst through the back window of the suspects’ car while Jones engaged with his 12-gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot. The 12 gauge failed to connect; the American 180 stitched across the back window of the car, removing the lot of it. The driver then crashed the car; the passenger was found already heading towards room temperature as a result of multiple .22 LR wounds to his back. The driver was apprehended later, grievously wounded by multiple .22-caliber gunshot wounds but still breathing. In today’s litigious environment, a fully automatic weapon that spews rounds so enthusiastically would be a plaintiff’s attorney’s dream. In the 1970s, however, there apparently weren’t as many lawyers are there are today. HOW DOES IT RUN? Wow. Just wow. Loading the drums is just as big a hassle as I had anticipated; the American 180 does indeed burn through .22 LR ammo at a breathtaking rate. I sucked it up and bought 5,000 rounds for this project just so I wouldn’t feel the effects of ammo famine before I got done. Keeping bursts in the five-round range is not tough for a disciplined trigger finger, and New Math tells us that even the smaller drums would pack 35 such bursts in a single charge. Visualize the fully stoked American 180 like a 10-pound recoilless shotgun that carries 35 rounds onboard. When so employed, the American 180 is accurate and controllable, allowing you to keep every round within a standard silhouette at typical handgun ranges. Reaching out to 100 meters, the gun is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, particularly when fired into a wet target with a safe backstop. Each burst seems like the fistful of gravel we used to throw into the water when we were young boys, producing that lovely little coordinated splash around the point of aim. Against steel targets, the effect is positively musical. Much beyond 100 meters, the American 180 becomes an area weapon system. BAD-BREATH DISTANCES At bad-breath distances, the American 180 is just as nasty as the marketing literature claims it to be. The recoil is so trivial that you really could just about write your name with the thing. When firing a full magazine in a continuous burst from a proper rest, the tidy little gun will indeed group within about a teacup. Such antics will indeed put hair on your chest regardless of your gender, but you could die of old age trying to load enough drums to keep the process vibrant for a while. When appropriately maintained, the American 180 is a reliable and effective close-quarters weapon. With 275 rounds on board, the gun gets heavy, but it offers more controllable firepower than most anything else in the arms room. Given the dynamically rotating nature of the drum magazine and the unimpressive mechanical spunk of the .22 LR cartridge, the practicality of employing an American 180 in an austere field environment is questionable, however. PURE FUN The American 180 is one of the most novel and unusual combat weapons ever devised. For law enforcement or corrections applications, it indeed offers some unique capabilities. However, the real niche the American 180 enjoys is as a recreational range toy. Fairly easy to tote and all but recoilless, the American 180 lets you chew up the range like a beaver on crack. Loading drums will test your patience, and the gun’s appetite will earn you Christmas cards from your favorite ammo supplier. However, as a delightful way to kill a lazy Saturday afternoon at the range, the American 180 is indeed unparalleled. Lightweight, accurate for its genre and just crazy cool, the American 180 is 10 pounds of raw, unfiltered fun.

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.
Scarce American Arms Model 180 M2 Fully Automatic Class III/NFA “22 LR” Machine Gun Serial #: Serial number obfuscated Manufacturer; American Arms International Model: American 180 M2 Type: Machine gun Gauge: 22LR. Barrel: 16 3/4 inch round Finish: blue Stock: plastic and walnut Class: Class III Description What a neat little fully automatic rifle manufactured by the American Arms International Company. These were originally designed in the late 1970s as a semi-automatic version with the fully automatic models being introduced in the early 1980s. The underside of the receiver is stamped: “AMERICAN ARMS INTL. S.L. C. UT./AMERICAN 180 M-2”. They were designed to look like a Thompson SMG but used a drum magazine mounted horizontally on top of the action somewhat like a Lewis or Russian DP-38 machine gun. The drum magazine holds 177 rounds of very popular and easy to obtain 22 LR ammunition. These handy little rifles can fire in either Semi-Automatic or Full-Auto (from an open bolt), a finned barrel like the 1921/28 Thompson SMGs, to aid in cooling. They have a cyclic rate of 1200 rpm which could be quite devastating even for the 22LR. It has a side-mounted cocking handle, a fixed blade front sight and an adjustable rear sight patterned from the M1 Carbines. They were very unique at the time and still are today. They have a high-impact brown plastic buttstock and a forend with a blue/black metal finish. Condition Excellent with 97% of the original finish overall showing handling minor wear and test firing. The plastic components are all in excellent condition. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), Class III, Fully Automatic Weapon which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, (BATF) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C.

The innovative minds over at AGM pulled all stops to produce a truly authentic WWII era MG42 airsoft replica. Originally the MG42 was designed in Nazi Germany to be a lost cost alternative to the MG34 and was used exclusively by the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS units during the second half of World War II. Due to its highest rate of fire and long lasting reliability, the MG42 was adopted by multiple armed forces at the end of the war. This full size replica from AGM is constructed fully from steel to match the feel and integrity of its 7.62mm brother. Alongside full metal externals, real wood is used for the ergonomically designed pistol grip and removable fixed stock, which houses the included battery. A functional mock charging handle adds to the realism of this airsoft replica. Utilize the adjustable hop-up located under the steel vented handguard to account for various target range and BB weight, for the most accurate shot every time. Players can use the adjustable flip-up front and rear sights to quickly and accurately zero in their targets without the need for an additional optic accessory. An included full metal bipod assists in keeping the MG42 stable when laying down cover fire, and can be folded against the rifle for easy transportation when changing positions. To match the rugged externals, AGM outfitted this AEG with a custom full metal gearbox; easily withstanding high energy output from LiPO batteries. Although a truly unique gearbox is used for the MG42, it is still fully upgradable with Version 2 aftermarket internals. The MG42 can lay down an impressive rate of fire, so AGM included a 2,500 round drum magazine to fully maximize this guns full potential. The drum magazine is designed to fit snug against the rifle to retain a low-profile, and features auto-winding technology saving you precious time during reloads. AGM made sure the MG42 comes skirmish ready by including a 8.4v 1100mAh NiMH battery and standard wall charger with every package. This heavyweight replica is perfect for authentic MIL-SIM events and reenactments, covering all bases for airsoft enthusiasts. The new Maschinengewehr MG42 Full Metal AEG from AGM is a truly one of a kind machine that is sure to resonate with airsoft enthusiasts of all play styles.

The M1919 Browning was an American general purpose machine gun designed in 1919 by John Browning, as an air-cooled development of the earlier M1917 Browning. It was a belt fed machine gun, usually used mounted on a bipod or tripod. During World War II, it fired .30 caliber rounds, and had a rate of fire of around 500 rounds per minute, with an effective range of over a kilometer. It was used mostly by American forces, but also to many other Allied nations. The M1919 Browning is a .30 caliber medium machine gun that was used during the 20th century. It was used as a light infantry, mounted, aircraft, and anti-aircraft machine gun by the U.S. and many other countries, especially during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Although it was replaced by newer designs, it remained in many NATO countries for much longer.

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.
