    All of them were rusty wrecks and OOW said so in their description....So were missing parts, broken parts....OOW did try to find replacements for the ones missing stuff....when they went up for sale the MG guy's were like crow's at a road kill they sold out fast.
    I was lucky to get one.

    These things were a bargain, they are a great stable shooting platform for a belt fed. the gun sits high enough so you can sit on an ammo can behind it and shoot. An M2 tripod with pintle and T&E will set you back about $700.00 one of these restored from oow is over $1,000.

    The one I got wasn't as bad as JJ's but it was a lot of work to re do, there are a lot of parts on one of these.
