The Popular UD-42 machine gun is a very effective and easy to hold on target machine gun. Manufactured by Marlin for the United Defense Supply corporation, and originally intended to replace the Thompson. However, since it was still a machined steel machine gun and labor intensive to produce, it was instead utilized as an arm to be dropped behind enemy lines for resistance and Partizan use. As a machine gun chambered in 9mm it could utilize captured enemy ammunition. The British called it the “Avenger”, as an appropriate nickname for forces “avenging” the occupation of their country. Straightforward manufacturer’s markings on the left side of the receiver, this gun includes two original 25 round magazines which are brazed together at the front to provide easy access to 50 rounds in one assembly. ATF Registration form shows simply, "Marlin” in the manufacturer’s block, but tiny Inter American Import Export Company markings are visible under the serial number and on receiver. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is fine original finish turning brown with scattered light pinprick pitting. 5 ½” long section of buttstock exhibits vintage wood replacement. Otherwise light dings and handling marks. Mechanics are fine. Bore is very good turning dark. Bolt face is fine. This is a select fire machine gun. A nice specimen and a fun fast firing machine gun to shoot. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS TRANSFERABLE ONLY TO ACTIVE FFL/SOT DEALERS ON AN ATF FORM 3 BUT MAY BE RETAINED BY SOLE PROPRIETOR FFL/SOT HOLDERS WHEN THEY RELINQUISH THEIR LICENSES UPON BATF APPROVAL. JWK 2019-10-46
