Errmm no - this was "deactivated" in 1944.

The barrel is actually free, it's the brass collar that has snapped leaving the barrel to rotate but the actual screw threaded bit (with the 4 cutouts around the edge) is jammed. If that makes sense! The actual mechanism has been stripped to components but the barrel remains uncooperative.

Tracks and Things makes a resin kit that can't be told from the real thing. Assemble it yourself from parts supplied.

Each part is individually cast with all part numbers and such. Assemble like a large model kit. Very durable, sun rain wont touch it. Not a toy bu perfect for mounting on your vehicle for display.

Also change feed from right to left for all you quad .50 owners. Barrel threads into the barrel extension just like a real one. Top cover lifts, feed system works, its very cool!

Kit, semi assembled $750 plus shipping.

Check out a web site one of our customers posted about his .50!

Additional pics by request.
