Just thought I’d share a pic or two of this display gun I’ve got before I get rid of it. Receiver is solid aluminum so there’s no firearm here. Would love to buy a semi receiver for it but I reckon the safe act wouldn’t know what to do with it lol. Fun fact about these; the drums are legal here because they don’t facilitate feeding, they’re simply used to hold the belt which is coiled up inside them. I don’t have any belts nor a drum sadly, they’re wicked expensive

 

thinking about letting this go to pickup a g43 or mini-14/30, maybe even an m1a. It’ll be hard to replace it with something more badass, especially NY friendly. Cant wait to move to PA and leave this nightmare island

Very nice!  You mentioned getting rid of it, do you have a buyer already?

I don’t. Sort of putting feelers out to see if I can’t find a trade I’d like. Wouldn’t mind a trade for an interesting milsurp + cash. Of course cash is always king but I haven’t actively gone that Avenue yet. Part of me doesn’t wanna sell it cause it’s a centerpiece of my Militaria collection but it’s also time to move on

Fortunately even if they do I’ve still got good reason to be there, but I sure hope they dont

Nice peice. I sold a pair of MG34s and a MG42 (all dummy guns) for the family of a deceased friend three years ago. Not an easy thing to do. The market for these is very small, mainly WW2 reenactors and militaria collectors. You might want to try those kinds of sites. They all went for $1k each. However It was very easy to sell the snail drums and carriers separately.

The market since then has gotten quite hot. Lots of guys rebuilding, 34 kits are drying up. The 42s are still the same mostly, due to the yugo parts being so common. Not nearly as many 34s floating around as a result, and much easier to rebuild since the shroud and receiver are separate, unlike the 42s. Feed trays, as an example, for 34s are going for around $400, as are bipods. You shoulda held onto yours a little longer ;-)

I could appreciate that, but it was mine to keep. Good luck with your sale.
