Anyone bringing a machine gun?

Probably your only opportunity in WW2 airsoft not to be crippled by airsofty rules but have unrestricted ammunition (on the German side at least). Must be deployed, must have a two man crew for unrestricted ammo and must have a reloading/barrel change cycle. Should one of the crew cop it then the other can continue manning the gun but your ammunition supply has ceased.

The German side will be relying on strong positions so an MG or two would be awesome.

If anyone wants to use a Bren on the British side, that's great. Can be deployed or fired from the hip if needs be, but ammunition is as precious as the rest of the trooper's.

Well I am a swapper but happy to bring the MG34 for when I go German if you want some more firepower.

3 magazines 500 round's in each but can be short filled as needed if you want less in them .

Happy to do my bit - it's a superb gun, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself with it at Normandy.

Great. Will probably go with a single magazine then and take the down time of reloading and rewinding as a barrel change equivalency. :good:

That would be fab, if you could pick it up at uniform change that will certainly build to a challenging finale. :good:

I'll dust off my 50 cal and see if it's working, (hasn't been used since The Eagle Has Landed), only problem is that I'm not sure if I have any mags for it, it takes AGM M14 mags so if anyone has some they can lend me, (or sell me), that would be great. I'm happy for others to use it as long as I'm not supplying the BBs :wink:
