This item is NOT offered for sale.
My Scratch-build FN Herstal FN30 Machine gun body:

The standard M1919 side plates and sight-mount are here.


The buffer group is made of stacked, 6mm-thick sheets. Once I get the final contours, I'll smooth it out some.


The trigger slide is made, but not installed yet. I need to learn something called tolerances...the slot and the slide are exactly the same size. Perfect if I wanted a press-fit.


The two side plates are separate parts now, as are the front and back assemblies, and the top latch. Each of these items can be independently removed, without disturbing the others. What ever gets put inside this, its parts will be easy to get to.


I even added a safety bar. One day, I'll even come up with a charging handle I like. For now, they are a blank slot, with three hole positions.


The small loop inside the grip area is for a on/off "safety" switch.


None of these parts have been de-burred or sanded. This is how they come from the CNC, snapped out of the "trees I cut them into.

More to come...

A few more shots. Almost sun-up, will take some clear outdoor shots today.

The two semi-circular cutouts in the top of the handle mount are for the safety slide assembly.


There will be a slide block very similar to what the real-steel has, to block the trigger when the safety is "on".


I have standardized my M1919 body and parts. This grip will go onto any of the last 20 guns I've built. four #8, 1/2"-long screws hold it into place. The same size screw is used, literally everywhere! Tear-down is a no-brainer, just toss all the screws into a handy container- no sorting.


Still experimenting with paint finishes, I wanted the grip to look like worn, cast aluminum. Lower grip mount is one part, thermo-formed with two 30deg bends.

Down with the flu...ugh.

Update- the Dual Browning now has the FN30's grip and trigger group...

You MAY need to re-load pages, this was JUST posted...
Page six shows the installed microswitch, and how it works using the normally closed contacts.

Also, a M4/M16 tour, and a Custom Airsoft tour have been added to the home page:
