    Cool, i'd like the minigun but not the ammo bill...

    And what's with that teeny MG on the cooler, anybody got an idea what caliber that is? I'm guessing .22.

    The 1920s re-enactment was fun, if unrealistic as all get out! Wish I could have just one of those Tommy guns!

    I love the grin on the older gentleman's face after he lights up that minigun. That is the kinda stuff I like to see at shoots like this.

    How does one see the front sight and target on the Bren - looks like the magazine occludes it - but I guess it's (the mag) is offset to the left a little?

    I've only ever seen one Bren, and that was a few years ago, but I seem to remember the sights being offset to the left. I'm sure someone with more intimate knowledge of the gun will be along shortly though. :)

    Yup. Sights are offset. Magazine is on top of the receiver and in line with the barrel.

    If they ever get rid of the GCA 34/68

    I would put a second mortgage on my house just to get one of those mini-guns. :evil:

    Bren Sights

    The sights on the Bren LMG are offset to the left precisely one inch. As mentioned, this is to allow sighting around the top-mounted magazine.

    To avoid any tendency to crossfiring as the range increased, the gun was always zeroed to impact exactly one inch to the right of the sights, meaning that line-of-sight and line-of-bore were PARALLEL at all ranges, instead of converging at any particular distance. Convergance would lead to crossfiring, and inaccuracy at all ranges except the point where lines of bore and sight crossed.

    The short-range zeroing target had TWO targets printed on it, one being a normal bold-printed aiming mark and the other being a "shadow" or lightly-printed version of the bold target. The gun was aimed at the bold target, but actually zeroed to bring the impacts to center on the "shadow" target, which was, of course, ONE INCH to the right of the bold bullseye.

    The gun was extremely effective, and the offset sights were no great concern at all. I'm a left-hander, and even I had no difficulty putting rounds on target. I just wish I could import the Bren that I still own in Canada, into the USA. I paid $325 for it thirty years ago, and it's worth about $40,000 if it were a transferable gun in the US!.

    M-134 miniguns are only about $18k if the NFA was lifted...

    That would be a Tippman Arms 1919a4 in .22 long rifle. They also made 1917a1 watercooled guns in .22 long rifle, and scaled down .50 Browning guns in .22 magnum.


    :D hehe. That would be Dolf Goldsmith, who wrote "The Grand Old Lady of No-man's Land," and "The Devil's Painbrush," about the Vickers and Maxim machineguns, respectively, and recently released his first book of a three volume series on Browning machine guns. He likes machineguns.......a lot.

    Think you'll find that they're more than that. Here's an ad for a post 86 dealer sample, i.e. real market price of mgs:

    Now you've done it....

    For some reason I have never been enamoured with full-suto weapons....

    UNTIL NOW THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My wallet hates you. :fire: All of you (not really, but it will now be a lot lighter). The funny thing is, the gun that really flipped my cookies was the old MP44 and the grease gun....go figure.

    Nice videos, I really like the music also, very ummmmmmmm, interesting.
