Original Russian WWII Maxim M1910 Fluted Display Machine Gun with Sokolov Mount & Accessories - dated 1942

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. One of our very last! This original WWII issue Russian M-1910 Maxim was built to BATF approved specs using one of our all original Russian stunning parts sets assembled on our BATF approved steel dummy non-firing receiver incorporating most internal parts. This example looks to be mostly made up of WWII Era parts, though it may have some WWI era parts, such as the top cover, as did many of the guns the Russians used during WWII. It also includes an original Ammo can with steel belt (where permitted) to complete the look!

Features of this set include in this set are-

- All original Russian issue MG parts.
- Newly made BATF approved side plates.
- Original M1910 Fluted Steel Water Jacket
- Top cover marked Korj.1942, indicating that it was re-dated for Finnish inventory after Capture in the Winter War.
- Very early back sight with circular elevation knob which measured in "ARSHINS", later model used a more simplified MG 08 type back sight graduated in meters.
- Early Russian Riveted Ammo Can with Maxim Steel Belt (where permitted). This example even has visible markings and what looks to be a 1915 date!
- Steel excellent condition Sokolov wheeled mount, complete with the hard to find piano-shaped "lock box" for a spare lock.

Some parts of this gun must have led a romantic existence, serving for close to half a century. The top cover is definitely a very early production one, with the early sight, and is serial number marked Д Б 120 on the cover plate and latch. 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, 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.
