    Never seen one of these before, nice find. Looks like it was built to withstand a beating, and it must be heavy?
    Actually it is fairly light, about the weight of a Japanese Type 96 or 99 and some what lighter than my BAR. Much lighter than my Mg 34 or 42

    Maybe in sharp competition with the Chauchat?

    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.

    I've posted quite a few photos of some of my other MG's before. I will be posting a few more of them taken at our annual local Memorial Day shoot in the next day or two.

    I totally agree. When I looked inside the receiver I could not believe the complexity of the design. Maybe the designers got paid by the number of parts they put into the design. IMO the only thing they did right was the quick barrel change feature.
    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.
