Deactivated Old Spec L7 GPMG SN. 1921 - *
Non EU sales Only. Can be redeactivated to EU/ UK spec. British L7 7.62mm NATO Calibre Belt Fed General Purpose Machine Gun in excellent deactivated condition. This example has been converted to the ground role from a L37, which was in turn converted from an L8A1! The GPMG entered service in 1958 and is still in service over sixty years later. It is an exceptional design that has seen competitors come and go (including the ill-conceived LSW, thank God!), and was fairly recently adopted as the official machine gun of the US armed forces (M240B), nearly half a century after it first appeared! It is utterly reliable under the severest conditions, and powerful and accurate up to three kilometres in the Sustained Fire or mounted role. Even the very fine dust in Afghan does not seem to bother it. It is currently in service with around forty nations and will definitely make it to its hundredth birthday before it disappears completely. Quite simply, a total legend that nothing else can touch. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold a London or Birmingham proof mark and certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly. Can be redeactivated to EU/ UK spec.
