    Default Breda 30 LMG in 6.5 Carcano

    My Breda 30 LMG in 6.5 Carcano. I was lucky enough to find a spare parts set and 15 of the U shaped clips to load the magazine. Surprisingly it works flawlessly.

    I don't know about in the USA, but here in the UK this is a rare beast.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Dave,
    Ugly is being kind when you describe the M 30. Perhaps that's why you don't see them very often. But they do work as long as you are not in a sandy or swampy location.
    Cheers,

    Never seen one of these before, nice find. Looks like it was built to withstand a beating, and it must be heavy?

    Samnev-'Flawless' is a word not often used with the Breda-the mag system with a hinged fixed box needing to be reloaded on the weapon itself for a measly 20 rounds is but the start but obviously yours is a good example of a poor design-as the Italian PBI (Poor Bloody Infantry) had to drag these through the sand and dust of North Africa and Southern Russia and indeed everywhere else, some 'sympathy' has to be expressed for them...

    As you know the square box like receptacle on the receiver is also to hold the lubricating fluid needed for the Breda 30 to run properly. I lube the cartridges with Johnson's Paste wax which dries quickly and leave a dry residue that lubes the cartridges. That is the only reason as well as shooting conditions here in this part of Arizona are ideal very few day of dusty conditions. I tried once to lube via the built in system. With in 50 rounds there was soup in the bottom of the receiver. I can imagine the problems that caused in North Africa and elsewhere as the soup turned to goo after a short exposure to those conditions. The Breda 30 is the last MG I would want to take into battle But works fine in thee warm dry conditions in Arizona where I live.
