Superb condition Johnson Model 1941 light machine gun with bipod and three magazines. Marked with patent dates and "JOHNSON AUTOMATICS" information on top of receiver above ejection port, and on right side of receiver "CRANSTON ARMS CO" within an inverted triangle. Bottom of magazine housing is marked "1-NE-41" indicating this was supplied in 1941 by New England Arms as a sub-contractor. Front of barrel is marked "30-06" and "41". Bolt is #C6099 (bolt numbers were never intended to match receiver numbers). Barrel reciprocating spring has good tension. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is exceptionally attractive, best this cataloger has ever seen, near excellent original gray-green finish with beautiful wood exhibiting very light handling marks. Mechanics are crisp. Bore is near excellent, shiny and bright. Bolt face is extremely fine. Magazines also extremely fine. This is an interesting select fire machine gun which fires from the open bolt in full-auto and closed bolt in semi-auto. The Johnson 1941 light machine gun was issued and used in the Pacific theater by the Marine Corps during World War II. A wonderful piece of World War II history for the machine gun enthusiast, and in a high level of condition seldom encountered. Although electronic registry “blank” in the manufacturer’s block, the consignor states this is an Erb registered machine gun. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS FULLY TRANSFERABLE ON AN ATF FORM 3 OR 4. JWK 2020-05-016
