NICE! And, IIRC, since it doesn't have a stock it isn't considered a rifle and thus does not need a lock on the feed tray. You would have to find someone outside CA to cut down some 10-round belts, though.

It'd be interesting trying to get that to the range, that carriage has to weigh a ton. Is it illegal to tow a gun from your truck? :80:

Actually, I believe that is encouraged in certain parts of LA...

Specs say it only weighs 96 pounds. Towing it down the street might get you some interesting looks.

Sweet! Does it come with a donkey to drag it to the range?

Haha that thing would be so much fun. And just think... only $2 goes down the drain with each belt change.

CA legal with 10 round belts. :43:

Unless, however unlikely, you had a stash of 250 round belts since before the ban. ;)

One of the gun magazines did a feature about black powder cannons in the 1990s. They included a picture of somebody towng his artillery with a blue and white PRk license plate on the carriage...

The only drawback that I see is that compared to the Browning 1919A4/6/1917 designs, there are going to be very few people that would know how to rebuild/repair/tweak the thing should it develop problems.

Other than that it looks cool, and the price isn't too far out of line.

All the various semi-auto beltfeds do have one thing in common.

If you have original capacity belts, you end up with carpal tunnel pain after running a few through the piece.

All true. On the plus side, 7.62x54R is a whole lot cheaper than .30-06. Or just about any other centerfire rifle cartridge, for that matter.

I wonder if it can be ordered without the carriage?

One thing thats cool about that set up.

You remove the gun from the carriage, tilt the carriage upright attach the gun to the tongue of the carriage.

It's now an anti aircraft gun.
