Cal. 9mm. S# 44312. Bbl. 8". There are very few SMGs as unusual as the Danish Madsen M50. It is an open bolt blowback operated, full auto only, variant that incorporates a safety mechanism which must be engaged w/ the support hand in order to fire. A lever that protrudes to the rear of the mag. well has to be depressed during firing or the bolt cannot drop completely into battery & will not fire. The cyclic rate is on the slow side at approximately 500 rds. per minute. Black painted finish w/ folding shoulder stock that is wrapped in leather as an improvised cheek rest. The bbl. is supported via nut that is threaded from the front in a similar manner to the Uzi SMG, once the nut is removed the receiver of the M50 opens like a clam shell to reveal the internals. The safety is a sliding switch located above the trigger on the left side of the receiver. Sights are crude yet extremely effective, especially give the slow cyclic rate that also aids in controllability. Front sight unprotected blade, rear sight is simple peep welded to the rear of the receiver. Tan canvas sling attached to left side. MAGS: 1-32 rd. CONDITION: finish coverage is complete w/ some minor scratches as typically found in armory kept firearms. Folding stock closes firmly & holds tight against receiver in that position, as well as locking firmly into place while extended. Bore is shiny w/ very strong rifling. Fire control mechanism appears to function correctly when cycled by hand. NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT MG REQUIRING BATF TRANSFER BEFORE TAKING POSSESSION. FULLY TRANSFERABLE. (03-1456/JZ). CURIO CLASS III. $8,000-12,000.
