Didja ask if we could have the U2 back?
She must have one heckuva lot of patience...

Wonder what other cool stuff they've got stashed over there...
ZB26 converted to 7.62x39 ? Who would've thought... Never seen an MG15 with a box-magazine, either.:cool:

whoops, i meant MG13. so many inaccuracies in the museum descriptions of the good stuff. probably 5K MG in a single floor. everything from subgun to anti aircraft 12.7mm quads.
ZB26 convert to AK magazines was a VN era expediency chinese arsenal modification of 8mm war stocks. omega weapons systems has kits sans receiver. unfortunately, the 26 uses an oddball receiver, and sources have dried up.
i wanted a chinese 8mm kit, but the barrel ban stopped importation of an expected batch. had to settle for a couple of turk ZB30 8mm kits. semi conversion should follow the basics of the bren conversion, but not even started yet.
zb 26 to 30 was a very small change. barrel contour is a little different.
