    Did anyone ever compete in subgun competitions with one of the 9mm beltfeds?

    Just curious...which belt-fed(s) do you have? I have a mix of old and new and I love them all. I will say it's much easier to belt up ammo with a belt loader, than link up ammo on a plate linker.

    So, I think the better question is, what are you willing to sell a beltfed for?

    I'm in the process of building a UK59 right now. I have prior trigger time on the SAW and M60.

    Wanted to build a 1919 until I saw kit prices.


    UK59 is a push through metal belt for 54r. Yes, push through with a rimmed cartridge. It's weird.

    I would pay very little. My preference is to have some historic relevance for my collection or at least have the item be very robust and reliable. Maybe I'd pay 1,500 or so if it was torture tested and did not have any aluminum or other soft parts. The Lage upper I have currently has an aluminum charging handle and seems pretty fragile. I wouldn't want something similar in construction.

    The old 1st Gen Lage Max 10 uppers are all steel. I prefer them to the Mk II uppers personally.

    I have been keeping this under my hat for a bit but it's a prototype you might be very interested in. It's a solid steel MAC-10 upper.

    Dat der looks like one of dem unregistered MGs to me.
    Got a permit for dat freedom?

    Joking aside no interest in a belt fed MAC over 3K
    It would also have to be easy to link by hand like the steel links are on a 1919.
    Just a simple push twist.

    I have a 1919 setup in the A6 so I can pack it around with a ammo can, one trip one person.
    Otherwise it's a crew served gun in the A4 config.

    Gun runs 100% never had a problem with it.
    In the A6 setup it will bumpfire due to the very shallow pivot point on the bipod. ROT is the same as the FA version.

    Now that I think about it maybe I'll set the 1919 up to disrupt the hunters that seem to think they are going to do what they want on our property.
    It's the loudest gun I own other then my 50bmg.
    It's also the highest capacity @ 250 rnd linked belts.

    Doubtful. We will see a 3k upper in the beltfed MAC world though.
    3K doesn't get you much now days in the world of collectable or odd guns.

    You laugh but I could probably make that run given some time.

    This is a good start. Better than most!
