This is a post 86 Dealer Sample built by Vickers Tactical using an unissued Hungarian parts kit on one of the superb Vltor receivers.

Larry brought it up with him during a recent class, and was generous enough to let us get some trigger time on it.

Outstanding weapon......

Big thumbs up to Vltor to bringing these to market and doing such an outstanding job.

Nice weapon. It looked big in the first pics, but when I saw it next to the men, it wasn't that large. Good heavy barrel though. That barrel would work well in a PSL.

Of the belt feds I've fired, it's my favorite.

Not that I've shot a lot....MG-34 and M60 are the only other two belt feds I've had experience with, but the PKM was far lighter, more portable, and so damn easy to use, it's one of the premier GPMG's/LMG's of the world.

It was...it was a new Vltor receiver with an unissued Hungarian PKM kit built onto it.

Once we got the gas adjusted for light ball, it ran like a raped ape. :thumbup:

How do the rounds get stripped out of the belts? Seems like the rim on the case would hang things up.

Doesn't the action de-link the round then chamber it? Most Ruskie MG's use non-disinitigrating links.

yeah there is a real good view in that one pic.. it pulls it out of the link chambers it..... lather rinse repeat..

im only lucky enough to have got the semi version of this and it still kicks major ass.

Nope, these don't get delinked, it's just like all the other non disintegrating belt systems.

so how would you describe it then? It looks from the pictures that the bolt grabs onto the case, pulls it out backwards, then chambers it forwards.

If that's not how it works, then how??

Pulls it out of the case and when the trigger is pulled, it slams forward to chamber and fire the round, which happens underneath the feed area.

that's what I was trying to describe.

It almost sounds like it takes 2 forward and backward motions to fire and eject each round. 1 back to pull cartridge from link, 1 forward to chamber and fire, one more backwards to eject case, and forward again to grab onto new case. Or is there 2 different systems? One "delinking" the cases, and another chambering and firing? If that's the case, then everything works in sequence, and just when a case is ejected, another is waiting there to be picked up and fired.

I'd love to cycle the action in person! Belt feds really get my interest aroused.

it does both of the actions at the same time...

had mine out again tonite for a few rounds, first thing to remember is this is a "striker" type set up not a regular swinging hammer.

as the action works ones going out the port while one is getting fed in and resetting the striker all at the same time. its surprisingly smooth for all thats going on.

was gonna take you some pictures, but the thread starters are much better than anything im ever gonna be able to take so no use to try that, but will show you a pix of it setting im my garage all nice and cozy.... lol

Man, is that a beaut!

I bet it was hard not to pitch a tent when firing that.
