    Default Semi Auto Vickers preview & range report

    I got some pictures from Sherman of his semi auto vickers, he range tested it and it works flawlessly. Sherman is a master machinist and builder. He will be selling conversion parts and services and I will be hosting the build tutorial on my site.

    I called IMA a few months back and questioned them about these kits. They were $495 then. I know I'm going to regret not picking one up. They're a beltfeed wetdream
    You gotta get the matching tripod for that beauty.


    Did I do that?

    Any chance of this mod package being adaptable for the Maxim?

    No, but the good news is Sherman has a design he will be working on after he gets the vickers stuff done.

    how hard of a project is this?

    if this is simpler than a 1919 im all down for it.

    are the kits from ima that can be purchased for 700.00 will they work for this project?


    here is a place that has the russian conversion for this vickers. to shoot russian ammo.

    where do you get the right side plate?

    i willing to do this because i like odd things w/ firearms. everyone has a 1919 but not many people have a vickers.

    okay so the kit is 700,
    the parts for semi are 495,
    the welding/services/cost? need this to determine possibility

    where would you get belts?

    Handyman,
    the side plates will be available from at least 2 sources. Sherman will also be doing the lock conversions, he has not determined the price yet.
    You can use maxim metal belts, us ordnance for one has cloth belts.
    considering the cost of a us ord semi, this is a good deal for a very desireable gun.
