Fantastic and exceptional desirable MAG-58 machine gun in infantry configuration with fixed buttstock and bipod. The abbreviation “MAG” stands for the French, “Mitrailleuse d'Appui Général” or “General Support Machine Gun”. This machine gun is familiar to the American military and American military enthusiasts as the M240B which was selected to replace the M60 machine gun in December 1995. This model, or variations of it depending on whether it is being carried by soldiers mounted in ground vehicles or in helicopters, is now the current modern American military full-sized rifle caliber machine gun in 7.62x51mm NATO. This particular specimen was manufactured by Fabrique Nationale in Belgium and is so marked on the right side of the receiver. The serial number is clearly visible at the top left forward edge of the receiver, with the top of the trunnion marked, “023”. The feed tray is flash chrome plated. Optic mounting bracket present at the left side of the receiver. These guns are extremely scarce in the National Firearms Act Registry, there may be as many 11 transferable specimens, and 17 Pre-86 dealer sample guns in the Registry. Electronic NFA Registry indicates “FN (HERSTAL)” as the manufacturer. PROVENANCE: From the collection of esteemed NFA firearms enthusiast and collector J. R. Moody. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent original finish with some slight loss of finish from the top cover actuating parts where they advance the belt in the feedway. Top cover rail and mechanism within top cover near excellent. Composite furnishings near excellent. Bore is near excellent, shiny, and bright. Bolt face near excellent. Mechanics are crisp and smooth. This is a full-auto only machine gun. Some firing residue at the gas port regulator under the barrel. Otherwise as nice overall condition as one could hope for. As one of the few specimens which can find their way into the hands of private citizens who are collectors of state-of-the-art modern U.S. Military machine guns, they command a special premium. For those of you who are active Class III dealers you should consider this opportunity. Non-dealers who are close friends with active dealers might well consider purchasing this gun a prudent and forward-thinking investment. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR TRANSFER TO ACTIVE FFL/SOT DEALERS AS A PRE-86 DEALER SAMPLE. Pre-86 dealer sample machine guns may be retained privately by a sole proprietor FFL/SOT dealer after they relinquish their license, with BATF approval. JWK 2022-3-23
