    Just thought I would post a photo or 2 of my Johnson 1941 LMG. You can see how ungainly the 25 round magazine makes the weapon. Especially when loaded with 25 rounds of 30-06 in a single stack magazine. The magazine can also be loaded with 5 round stripper clips while in the weapon just like the rifle. In the top photo the magazine is not in the LMG One other feature that is weird. It fires in semi from a closed bolt. So if you want to go from semi to full which fires from an open bolt it ejects the loaded round that was loaded in the semi mode.

    Awesome pics, Samnev, very nice!

    I always found the Johnson LMG a particularly interesting piece.

    Bob,
    I have a Colt 21/28 that I love and a BAR. If I might offer a suggestion for almost the same money you can get a BREN Gun which is a much better LMG than the BAR IMO. I haven't shot my BAR in 8 years but always shoot the BREN. Easy to change the barrel and has a recoil dampening system that reduces the recoil to at least half of that of the BAR.

    Hi Sammev
    I had to look up the bren gun ,that cool is that a 303 rnd . and the colt 21/28 that a THOMPSON . I wanted the BAR just to go with collection of ww2 stuff . I don't think I can buy anything till I move . but that's a good thing . I can start saving $00000 you think that's enough zero. ha

    Hi Bob,
    Yes I think that is enough zero's. There was also a Bren made in 8mm by Inglis. My Bren is an Inglis MkI* in 303. I started collecting 303 brass long before I got the Bren. You can load the 303 with 308 surplus US 30 caliber bullets rather than spend the coin on 311 bullets. All you need to do is change the expander ball on the 303 die from 311 to 308. I've been doing that ever since I got my first SMLE 303 many years ago. Surplus 303 is virtually non existent and commercial ammo is to expensive. GI 308 bullets is more than adequate for shooting the Bren.
    Good luck in your search and savings plan. Once you shot a Bren you will never want to shoot a BAR. That's why I haven't shoot my BAR in ages.
