- Correct later pattern rear sight.

Some parts of this gun must have led a romantic existence, serving for close to half a century. The water jacket is definitely IMPERIAL RUSSIAN ISSUE. This part at least went through the Revolution and was again used in the 1939 Winter War invasion of Finland where it was captured.
It remained in the hands of the Finnish Army and was re-dated for Finnish Inventory, and also has had SA markings added in various places, such as on the Sokolov mount, for which stands for Suomen Armeija, the Finnish Army. Virtually all of the Russian Maxims available on the market came out of Finland, just as this example.
This is really an excellent example, which will make a great display piece in any collection!
The PM M1910 (Пулемёт Максима на станке Соколова, Pulemyot Maxima na stanke Sokolova or "Maxim's machine gun model 1910 on Sokolov's mount") was a heavy machine gun used by the Russian Army during World War I and the Red Army during World War II. It was adopted in 1910 and was derived from Hiram Maxim's Maxim gun, chambered for the standard Russian 7.62x54mmR rifle cartridge. The M1910 was mounted on a wheeled mount (Sokolov) with a gun shield and was replaced in Soviet service by the SG-43 Goryunov, starting in 1943. In addition to the main infantry version, there were aircraft mounted (PV-1) and naval variants.
