    It is going to be a real challenge to convert it. the way the mechanism works with the firing pin being totally enclosed and not accessable and the total lack of room inside the receiver wil make it a real challenge.

    it has a lot of precisely made parts as well. I have been wanting one for a long time and the best deal we could get was about a year ago from oow if we bought 6 or more for 3300.00 this was a real bargain by those standards. but times are tough for all at the moment and there are lots of bargains to be had if you have some $$$.

    I sold a lot of extras from the collection before the election when prices were high and now am buying a lot of desireable stuff at reasonable prices.

    I would make a postie out of it but have no place to shoot it so I will make it a semi. If I had a place to shoot I would have several posties in the rack!!

    Apparently OOW figured out a way to do it as they are selling semi-auto m240s. I didn't see any info on how they did it though.

    For the record, every day I open this thread, look at it and think, "God, that is beautiful". And I have an armory full of them to play with! That is a nice kit.

    Now that's a MG! Sweet looking MAG, looks just like a Canadian version, like the ones I carried. Sweet fun!

    Yes the FN MAG is a beautiful blend of designs from the MG42 (Trigger Group and simplified Feed Mechanism) , the US B.A.R Bolt Locking Mechanism etc. Wonderful MG, Great to Shoot and I never
    experienced a single jam, even with blanks...but I did keep mine in meticulously clean condition

    The MAG58 operating system was a direct copy from the Browning BAR.This is why OOW was able to make a semi , probably similar to their semi BAR's
