Friend and I bought a couple of parts sets from IMA long ago. I helped him sell his set here a few years ago (his description, not mine - http://1919a4.com/showthread.php?20600-Finnish-09-21-Maxim-machine-gun-parts-set-W-mount-amp-extras) where details on history were filled in by Bob Naess. I had mine built by Dennis at MMC but have never had the time to shoot. The MMC semi conversion has a small bottom piece added that won't work with the Finn tripod but is fine w/ Sokolov wheeled mount. Looks to me like minor mod to tripod and/or bottom piece should resolve but I haven't tried. The Sokolov shield will also need some modification to work with the Finn water jacket. Also still needs a couple of the water jacket plugs that I never got around to sourcing. Includes gun, tripod/mounting sleeve, Sokolov/shield, two ammo cans/belts and an extra barrel.

$5000 + shipping (all very heavy). Also have six 440rd tins of 7.62x54R ammo that will be available to buyer if interested. PM me for a link to download more pics.

Update 7/16/15 - Was home and available to ship for couple of weeks but now heading back out of town and won't be able to ship for a few months. Still available and I'll give it a bump when I get back.

Update 12/13/15 - I'll be back home and able to ship in a few days and should be around for a while.

SPF, thanks!

Hi,
I am also very interested in it, going on vacation soon so the logistics would be somewhat tight. Where are you located?

Waorani was a great guy to deal with!

Recently bought a really nice semi auto Finnish 09/21 Maxim and tripods from Waorani. A real gentleman to deal with and a great packer. Also wanted to thank gunrunner99 for handling the transfer of the gun, a true professional.

This is the second large purchase I have made from a forum member in the last six months, with the first being a 1928 Colt WC gun package from Porteroden who like Waorani did a great job packing and was a pleasure to deal with.

In fact the only person not thrilled is my wife, don't really understand why, the four kids got a new pair of shoes when school started. :rolleyes:

My first of way way too many purchases that came through this site was a barret 82a1 from waorani. Had that deal gone badly maybe you all would have had a better chance at about any thing get was posted for sale over a three year period in the late 2000s early 2010s :)
