    Uk59 - What Do You Think?

    Saw this yesterday - don't know much about them. I understand they are 7.62X54R. What do you all think??

    "By Special arrangement with Blitzkrieg Brothers we are offering the UK 59.
    The UK59 is currently the standard machine gun of the Czech and Slovak armies.
    Rifle package includes: Semi automatic only Uk59, USA made barrel chrome lined and blued, 1 each 50 round box with belt, 1 each 250 round box with 5 belts, tool kit*,
    Blitzkrieg Brothers wooden transit chest"

    I don't know anything about them, but It has a WW 1 look to it
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    I know nothing about these semi-auto builds... but the originals are apparently pretty much built like tanks. A few years back TGI imported a big batch of unissued UK59 heavy barrels (originally intended for use with the medium MG version of the UK59) that had been re-threaded for Mosin-Nagant receivers. I used one of those of a custom Mosin-Nagant target rifle I had built and, man oh man, is that UK59 barrel the bee's knees. Never would have thought an MG barrel would be capable of minute-of-golf ball shooting at 100 yards, but it sure is. (And I'm sure the Lapua brass, D166 bullets, and VV N140 powder deserve a lot of the credit, too.) And the heft of the barrel pretty much makes the recoil un-noticeable. Not that Mosins are hard recoiling rifles in general, but it's nice being able to immediately see the POI through the scope w/o needing to reacquire the spot.

    Would be interesting to see how those US made barrels on the Blitzkrieg Brother's builds compare to the original barrels.

    I confess, I bought one almost immediately after I posted on it, but wanted to hear all the comments without anyone saying nice things about it just because I had gotten one.
    It was an impulse thing and should be here next week..

    Congrats Chief, It looks like a really fine rifle. I know little about them and less about the builders but a belt fed in 54 has been on the list for a long time and I'm glad you were able to get one. You know the drill, we all want lots of pics and a range report ASAP. Good luck with it.

    You know the drill, post up some pictures when you get it. Interested to hear how heavy it is. Belfeds are definitely addicting.

    A new deer rifle I presume. You know you'll have to sleep with that one in the house for a while before putting it in the pens with the herd.
