GPMG and Rarden Cannon Wanted

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a 30mm Rarden cannon and a GPMG to finish off a CVR(W) Fox that I have restored.

 

Ideally I would like to get hold of.

 

A Complete Deactivated Rarden.

 

or. A deactivated breech assembly

 

or. A replica breech assembly. ( apparently some were made by apprentices )

 

or. Any external breech casing parts that I can use to make my own dummy breech assembly.

 

 

As far as a GPMG. The Deactivated ones are too much money now, considering that most of it will be hidden away in the turret. So I am looking for a good metal Replica or even a rough old De-act that I could make good.

 

Thanks. Any help or pointers in the right direction would be much appreicated.

 

Bob

Chris (sirhc) was doing the barrel troughs...then you just need a bit of gas pipe and a flash hider...not sure what benefit you get from a replica breech, just takes up room in the turret?

 

I recently bought a replica gpmg to go on top of my spartan from military muckabouts (theyre on milweb). It is quite rough and ready from close up but fine from a distance and just over £300 all in so about one tenth the price of a deac and very quick turnaround. £2k seems hugely optimistic for a deac based on what ive seen! I think xfire still do them as well, a little more expensive...

 

Cheers

I seem to recall that Manroy will sell you a brand new deactivated GPMG straight from the factory. No idea of cost, though.

Hi Timbo.

 

Thanks for the reply.

I already have a barrel and trough so it looks pretty good from the outside. I want to put a Breech assembly into the turret so that it looks right from the inside as well, I don’t really want a big hole in the back of the mantlet.

 

I have been talking to Military Muckabouts for a couple of months. As they are a long way from me I was trying to get them to e-mail me a couple of decent photos of there GPMGs before I buy one. They seem very reluctant to do this and the Video they point me to on there web site is very poor quality. I had the feeling they would not be that good so decided not to buy.

If you could post a couple of good photos on here it may help.

 

thanks again.

Hi bob

 

I may be in the shed on monday so will try and get you a couple of pics then. You are right in that they are very much at the 'film prop' end of the market, but to be fair I think the price reflects that...

 

Cheers

Tim

Don't forget the Co-ax will have to be the correct model L37A1 with the modded barrel and recoil buffer.
