    It looks like the side plates are riveted and soldered to the trunnion ??


    Did I do that?

    what would the two sources be? im really interested in this.

    im sorry if i sound kind of stupid here it is just that i dont know much about the vickers. this looks cool enough for me to attempt.

    thanks for the location on the belts. i like that the maxim belts work.

    is the tripod a 1928 colt one? in the pics.

    Illya, yes the trunnion is riveted and soldered

    Handym, I can't say who will be making the sideplates, but they wil be available.
    Sherman will have kits in stock with the semi parts by the first of the year, he will also be doing the lock frame mods, He hasn't set a price on those yet.

    The tripod in the photos is a vickers tripod.

    first photo is the lock frame retracted
    another with the cover open
    Next is the lock frame closed.
    The barrel attaches to the bottom links

    As you can see there is a lot of parts inside, it is a quite complicated mechanism.
    however once the lock frame and other parts are machined it is mostly soldering and riveting up the receiver box.
    It is a expensive and challenging buiuld, but worth it I think.

    Naw, not yet. But I did order one of IMA's Bren 2 barrel assemblies.

    Right now all my gun money is going to Harlan and Mike at NDS for receivers. Need to get receivers for the kits I already have. Never know what Nancy and the other Demon-cratic Washington clowns have planned for the next Legislative session.

    Maybe after that, if IMA still has Vickers kits............................


    Did I do that?
