Pretty sure this will be the only one I ever make of these, built on customer supplied parts kit. Missing all of the center of the receiver so had to fab that from scratch. Good think I have an uncut original post sample of one imported by LMO to get the specs from as it is way different that the regular Madsen LMG. Links must be fed from the pictured can as it contains the half of the feed pawl mech.
Enjoy,

Very impressive. I think I remember seeing a parts kit like that on GB, If I remember right it was like $4500 or so.

Was the fire control the same as the standard Madsen or at least similar?

That's totally sweet. Nice job on that, Dennis. Of course, you made your own standard, but then you never fail to live up to it. Beautiful.

Glad you guys enjoy it. The firing mech. is similar except that the trigger assembly is separate and moved farther back on the gun, there is a separate lever system that activates the sear. Also there is a supplemental spring and rod that pushed against the barrel assembly housed in the rear tube that the butt stock attaches to. This was to increase the rate of fire and the booster dia. is smaller to accommodate the extra recoil spring. The barrel shroud is very thick and beefy for its armored car/tank purposes. Its a fine example of Danish workmanship. The links must be fed double loop first and it requires double cocking to get the first round in position to fire in either semi or FA mode.

so if the can has part of the feeding assembly built into it....


do you have to drop a new belt in OR hope your next full can is undamaged?

A new belt can be snaked in but has to be removed first to pull the the first link out for the feed to grab it. The cans are very beefy and would be difficult to damage in that area.
