You have more MGs? Have you posted pictures of any of them here before? If not, I would like to see

The Chauchat at least has the excuse of being designed and built ( by war profiteers) under wartime pressure-how the Italians managed to end up with such a flawed design in peacetime and with extensive combat use in Ethiopia and the Spanish Civil war (which always magnifies any faults) is beyond me.
If that wasn't bad enough did you ever see the 1914 Revelli HMG and it's feed system?
Here's a link; Fiat-revelli M1914
That square opening is where that bird cage of ammo went into. If recall correctly the gun would take the cartridges out of the bird cage one at a time then replace the empty and move on to the next round. I only fired my friends many years ago. He took such a ribbing he never took it out again. He's is the one that introduced me to the Breda 30. Afterwards I got mine. But the Revelli 1914 was a bridge to far for my taste.

I recently purchased a legal Breda m30. I'm looking for parts, more specifically a bolt and a charging handle. I will post videos galore if this gin shooting if I can get it running again. Any help is appreciated.
