Original Fabrique Nationale Herstal fully automatic fire only machine gun. The "Mini-mi" machine gun derives its name from the French translation of "Mini Machine Gun". Now the standard Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) of the United States and other countries, this model is innovative and may utilize either a belt or magazine ammunition feeding system. Gas piston operated and firing from an open bolt, it utilizes a rotary bolt locking system, and features a quick detachable chrome lined barrel, bipod, and carrying handle and integral adjustable rear peep sight. Marked "FN" within an oval over "HERSTAL" on left side of receiver with numerous original stock numbers on various parts. Includes one bag of approximately 200 FN metal links and an additional 200 metal links on the loose, and one unmarked black aluminum magazine. CONDITION: Extremely fine to near excellent original finish with some loss of finish to the high edges of the handguard hardware, front sight hood, and muzzle of bird cage flash hider. Top cover rail and mechanism within top cover or feed tray are near excellent with some patina to feedway. Furnishings are extremely fine to near excellent. Tag attached to this gun indicates test firing in August 2005 and 100% function with magazine. Truly an outstanding battle tested "state of the art" light machine gun, versatile and fun to shoot as well as being very effective. If you are a modern machine gun enthusiast, this is a gun you need to try, and if you serve or served in the armed forces and employed one of these, you know how much fun they are! One of the very few Pre-86 dealer sample guns available to the private market. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS MACHINE GUN 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.
