Well, they do try...
Compare photos of the actual weapon to their repros and you'll see what people mean, though... the mortar especially.

thanks looked at the mortar and yes it looks different, is it based on another type or is it just a bad copy...
the pics of the 30, 50 cal look ok to me or am i missing something... (real shame as really was lookin into getting there mortar)...

Stuff kinda looks like it's made out of LEGO... or possibly pepakura.

Look closely at the 30cal grip & trigger. Now look at a real one.
Look closely at the traversing mechanism (in fact most parts) on the mortar. Now look at a real one.
They're not unskilled, as it takes some ability to make these things... but they look like they were made by a 6th Form metalwork class.

its hard as you want to get something to display and spending cash that you cant waste, you want to be happy it the item.
nugget thanks for that you put a positive comment about them and to be fear think you are the only one i have spoken to in person and on here that has, and thanks taskmaster as i have not seen one. shame like i said really was looking to get one but need a few more peps with good comments as if got one and felt i could not display due to bad look or not right it would spend rest of its life in my shed....

the mortar is pants, the .30 is crap and the bazooka could be made by my 9 year old, the .50 looks acceptable

https://military-muckabouts.webs.com/si ... iring-guns The .50 firing is there - VERY impressive

I have the Military Muckabouts .50 cal ( static non gas) plus tin with small belt of shells ( about 20 I think) + original cast mounting from gun ring + Military Muckabouts replica stand (not great)
The .50 is OK and being metal easy to adapt if you want to.

I'm looking for any Vickers MG for an ex-movie Rolls Royce replica. Anything - in bits, decommissioned / replica - anything. Even just the muzzle/flash supressor would be great.

Thanks
