Looking for a Russian Maxim Fuzee Spring in the unlikely event anyone has one.

Ehm, bits like this don't seem to come easy. I've had a hard time finding a spare feed block for my Maxim after the feed arm shattered (Whoops). Ended up having to re-machine one myself.

Need 2 or 3 to complete my tool kits. Probably plenty in Finland when they released their Maxims and probably large numbers of Maxims being scrapped in Russia now.

I'd love if you could share an inventory list of these tool kits, I've found very little reliable information in english. I have been searching in Finland for a spare feed block for three months, with none apparently surfacing, which is why I opted to remake the part that shattered. Firing pins and springs seem to be common enough to find, so I've got a few spares of those.

No spare bolts or mainsprings or feed blocks however. I would like to have at least one of each as spares (though, not deactivated, as I need them for shooting).

Feed Blocks and Locks come up for sale in the states but very expensive. I have also exchanged some late pattern steel feed blocks with collectors in the states for allumimum ones including one not converted for metal belts which is very rare.

If you send me a private e-mail address I will send you the pictures I have.

I have 3 of the 4 patterns of spare parts boxes which are housed in converted ammunition boxes.
Also the later canvas bags.
