Original WWII Danish Madsen Display Light Machine Gun with Magazine - No. 35

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. 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.)

Comes complete with original issued wood butt stock and detachable magazine, along with a post war reworked bipod. This example has a mechanical issue internally, so it can unfortunately no longer have the action "clunk-click" dry fire. 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 MADSEN markings on the receiver, along with VERY LOW serial No. 35. 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).
