    Semi MG08

    Wow - we really need a few more posts here! So I made it to Knob Creek again last fall and came home with an MG08 Maxim kit. It's a DWM built in 1918 and was all matching parts. After 4 months of fabrication it is now a functioning semi in 7.62x54r. I used a 1910 barrel and a few Vickers parts to accomplish it.

    Another beauty! WOW and in 54r.

    Very nice. It’s good to see another one back up and running. Did you make the plates? What’s involved in converting to semi?

    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    I've put some rounds through it but as a WW1 reenactor it will mainly use blanks. Same effect - costs a lot less!!!

    Take it to the 'peaceful protests' & 'uncompensated shopping' and watch them scatter.... Of course don't forget sandbags & such.... Beautiful work and a real prize worthy of any collection..., and in a cannon caliber too.
