I have wanted one of these for a couple of years, but the $3,500.00 price tag was a bit steep. DSA put a few of these up on gunbroker last week. I called my contact there and got this one hand select for $2,000.00 it is in excellent condition and the bbl looks new. I can't wait to sort it all out and put all the sub assemblys together.
figuring out a semi conversion will be a good winter project.
Did I do that?
Stan -- That's nice!
What's the action like? Do they have hammers?

That is a nice looking kit. But what's a MAG58? Never heard of it before.

Rock n' roll. Really nice looking kit at the price.

WOW! That is GREAT! You are one lucky juy. That is the ultimate GPMG! I used one extensively in Iraq in 2003 and they are a great gun to be behind. When you need it, they will work! As for a semi conversion, should be interesting. It fires from an open bolt with a fixed firing pin. Keep us informed!
A trigger housing that looks suspiciously like an MG42 and does that look like a PK style carrier? Hard to tell from the pics. That missing the RHSP suggests you'll need to machine a 1919 semi-only notch into the carrier somewhere. I'm sure you'll figure it out
