    PAC if you want one get it as soon as you can, once a semi approval goes through the price of the kits will go up really fast.

    I hope something happens soon with the semi thing, I'm getting tired of looking at those boxes siting there.

    I have always loved water-cooled's. I think I'm going to get a kit even if it's just for a dummy gun.

    Anyone know of the quality of the IMA kits? That's the only place I've seen that has them.

    OK bringing back and old thread, didn't want to start a new one.

    I was checking to see what's going on with these and found some new info and have to ask a few questions again. I'm really getting tired of seeing this thing in pieces.
    I see now there's 2 designs being built but there's not much info on them, it seems like a belt fed secret of some kind.
    What's the differences in Sherman's design and Midwest Metal's? I don't want a tutorial (it would be nice though) just looking for general info.
    Is anyone offering Sherman's design in any way?
    Which one of these would be easier for a novice to intermediate builder? I don't have the equiptment to do the milling but can do a good bit with what tools I do have. Paying to have some of the work done isn't a big deal, I just don't want to pay someone to build it.

    I believe Shermans design is best, it is well tried and proven, I am not sure about the other one. I heard there were some issues with it.
    Sherman is offering a diy kit for those who want to do it themselves. his contact information is on my website in the vickers section. there are also videos of his gun running. there are a few of his conversions running and the owners are happy with them.

    Pirate thank you, I didn't know he was offering a diy kit, that's great news. I've seen the info about the build and video on your site but that was when it was first added.

    The main difference I've noticed about Midwest Metal's design is there's a small box added to the bottom of the receiver for an extra diconnector thing.



    Pirate I just went to your site and can only get to the second page of the Maxim area, don't know if there's more but it does show a "next button" on the page.
