No such thing as a water can and hose for for a Russian Maxim as they did not use them.

The ones on the market came out of Finland.

I am one of the few serious Russian Maxim collectors in the world so send me an e-mail if you have any questions. Post some pictures of the markings.

How long ago did you buy your Maxim as I though Rytons were out of stock.

Thanks for the info.

Even though they are Finnish issue, do they turn up? I'm also after a fabric/metal tab ammo belt as well to complete the weapon, plus any other ansills to go with it.

I purchased the weapon 2 months ago, but only had it collected for me last week ( the guy doing it was a bit slack but it saved me £115 postage!)

regards

This is a god site for Maxim accessories but only if you have a friend in the states who will forward on a parcel as they will not post out-side of the USA mainland.

I halso have a Finnish Water Can if you have any interest.
