    I don't know of any that specialize in machine guns but Numrich gun parts would be a good place to start. They have an awesome selection of parts.

    GunBroker has a section dedicated to machine gun parts.

    The best place, by far, to find these parts is at the show at the Knob Creek shoot twice a year. Numrich, Sarco, Ohio Ordnance Works, and many others are all there.

    If you love machine guns,Knob Creek is a must pilgrimage. I went last fall and will do it every year now.If it exists it'll be at the shoot. I'm from Illinois and can only dream but it's worth the trip.

    There are a bunch - Allegheny Arsenal and Apex, for example. What parts are you looking for?

    Do original M3A1 barrel assemblies need permits?

    Never understood what parts are NFA items and not for M3A1.
    For instance is the Barrel Assembly purchasable like any other barrel?

    The only restricted parts for any machine gun are receivers. The receiver carries the serial number. All other parts are legal to buy or sell.

    Now, someone is going to point out that things like DIAS require registration. Yes and so do complete sets of parts that will convert an M1 carbine to an M2. I'm speaking only about individual parts for any given weapon such as the M3A1 (grease gun).

    Some MGs have receivers that are assemblages of parts. For example, on the Browning machine guns (watercooled and aircooled), the registrable part -- the part carrying the serial number -- is the right sideplate. On the other hand, the M60 receiver is also an assemblage of parts, but it's not clear which of them, on its own, is registrable.

    This Makes Sense

    Thanks, guys, it is rare that governmental rules ever
    follow common sense.

    Just wanted to say that I have dealt with Michael at USMACHINEGUN and if he has anything that you are looking for, that is the FIRST place you should look to. He's great to deal with.

    Check out the subguns board or strumghwer board (sp) as well as sites like uzitalk and 1919a4.com
    Sarco and numrich both carry some MG stuff. A quick google search will give more results then you can use. Shop around, there are some sites that are stupidly over priced.
