    I like the Mk I or Mk I*. I own a Inglis Mk I* and is my favorite LMG.

    That's a question with many answers! What do you want to pay? Have you considered the marks available? Older spec or newer spec (There are subtle differences, the 2012 and 2013 examples floating around can be the dregs and roughly deactivated)? How much do you want to pay etc.

    You have the choice of Mk1 DD, Mk1 pattern A (AKA Mk1m), Mk2, Mk3, 7.62mm conversions etc, then there is the manufacturer, Lithgow, Inglis or Enfield and then the originality, if you find some, let me know what your looking at and I'll give you my opinion.

    p.s. The World Wide Arms Mk3s are a good buy, they are mostly 1955/56 dated but are original and not mixed bags. Down sides is they are post war (Identical to WW2 examples) and the price (About right for a Mk3).

    Would the 1939 gun happen to have a gas axe cut to the side??

    Let me know if it is, Sal is the owner and he may do a deal, it was for sale 6 months back for 50 less so he may be open to offers. I may also have a section that could be added to fix the cut.
