Original WWII Danish Madsen Display Light Machine Gun with Magazine - No. 3216
Original Item: Only One Available. Recently purchased from a private collection! This is a very nice example of a Danish Madsen Light Machine gun, produced by IMA years ago, and just purchased back. As with all our Madsens, BATF compliant non-firing Madsen Display LMG assembled onto re-welded non operational shortened receiver. These are constructed of 95% original parts (a couple pins and minor parts maybe post war manufactured, manufactured in Denmark and extensively used by Germany during WWII after the invasion of Scandinavia.)
Complete with original issued bipod, carry handle, wood butt stock, and detachable magazine, our display gun still has an operational hammer and trigger assembly so weapon can be cocked using the charging lever and dry fired. The selector switch is still present, and can be moved as well. In 8mm (German) this became a very reliable weapon for the Third Reich in WWII.
This example is in very nice condition, with a solid butt stock, and a nice stove black finish. It still bears original markings on the receiver, along with serial No. 3216. A magazine will be included where permissible, otherwise spring and followers will be removed.
Ready to display!
The Madsen is a light machine gun that Julius A. Rasmussen and Theodor Schouboe designed and proposed for adoption by Colonel Vilhelm Herman Oluf Madsen, the Danish Minister of War, and that the Royal Danish Army adopted in 1902. It was the world's first true light machine gun produced in quantity and Madsen was able to sell it in 12 calibers to over 34 countries. The gun saw extensive combat usage for over 100 years, with continued use in limited quantities worldwide into the 2010s. The Madsen was produced by Compagnie Madsen A/S (later operating as Dansk Rekyl Riffel Syndikat A/S and then Dansk Industri Syndikat A/S).
