Item Description

Transferable RAMO sideplate Model 1917A1, built onto a COLT 1928 parts kit By Craig Jordan at Tiffany Arms ( One of the best builds done). This gun is finished in a beautiful blued and bare brass with the tripod painted in what appears to be the original green color with bare brass. The MG was purpose built in 7.62 NATO (308) and was not converted after being built. This RAMO sideplate was one of only 6 of the 1917A1 Marked plates RAMO made in their production run according to the RAMO records. A rare and unique Machinegun . The gun was transferred to the previous owner in 1993 and it has sat in his safe / estate until I purchased it earlier this year. I have a copy of the previous transfer for records as well. The gun appears unfired. I am sure the original ‘28 kit was used, and I am sure the gun was test fired, but the interior of the gun looks like new with essentially no wear present. The barrel look new and is most likely a turned down Israeli barrel that was parkerized. I have a number of additional photos I can send via email that for some reason will not upload on this site. I can supply a 30-06 barrel with the gun for a small additional fee if the buyer wants to have a caliber conversion on hand. I also have a like new original 30 cal belt loader I will only sell with the gun for $750. I will need a 308 conversion ram fitted but the loader has been adjusted and works fine in 30-06. Feel Free to email me to ask questions or if there is a particular feature you want a picture of. Brian [email protected] This will come with the gun and tripod as shown, the wood ammo box and several cloth belts. I have both new and “used” belts that will load the 308 rounds easily. This gun will transfer on a form 3 to your FFL/SOT, and buyer is responsible for all transfer taxes. I will also include a box of links ( 308) but I would not fire links in this without a trunnion protector. Priced at $20,500 as described. As of right now, No sales tax is being collected on this sale. Gun and tripod can be picked up here in MN after approved transfer, or shipped via ground at actual cost via Fed Ex at buyers cost. I will consider partial trades of class III items .
