M73 replica (dummy) MG's for sale (photos attached)

Post by wgtactical » Sat Nov 26, 2022 5:46 am

We have finished the two needed for the Blood Sweat and Tears V100 restoration and thought we'd offer a pair for sale. These are full size and fit into the sockets that any live M73 would fit into and even accepts many OEM M73 exterior parts. These dummies will not chamber or fire any type of cartridge nor can they be modified to do so.

Charging assy's installed, LH and RH. These full size, stainless steel replicas (with exception of a few OEM parts such as pins, feed trays and chain) will be $4200 for a pair or $2300 each, bare stainless (in the white) for two replicas with serial numbers ending in 003 and 004. For those of you familiar with design, machining and fabrication and fixturing on this level, you can easily see the price of the individual parts alone would be quite a bit more expensive than what we're going to sell the assembled 003 and 004 replicas. We didn't track our time very well on the first two since we were doing the reverse engineering and fabrication on-the-fly so by offering these two dummies at a reduced price, we will be able to track it now that we're basically running copies.

Shown here with optional Cerakote. These lock into the mantlet just like the originals. However unlike the originals, these wont rust.

'In the white' 304 stainless. The replicas will be serial numbers ending in 003 and 004.

Many OEM parts will interchange and some are used on the dummy since they are much cheaper to buy when available in surplus than reverse engineer reproduce from square one. Having that said, I have depleted stock from a couple vendors and when that's gone, those parts will have to be reproduced as well.
