As usual, I have a recap today of the final prices of the guns I filmed from the most recent Morphy’s auction (Fall 2018). One of the things I noticed here is an opportunity for people interested in some of the big tripod-mounted early heavy machine guns. They aren’t cheap my most standards, but compared to other NFA registered machine guns, they are a tremendous value for the money. Many of these guns – things like the Maxim, Vicker, Schwarloze, Hotchkiss – are magnificently engineered guns that were true queens of the battlefield in their day. But they are old, heavy, and cumbersome (not to mention typically not highlighted in movioes and video games), and not so popular these days. Definitely an opportunity for the machine gun connoisseur, in my opinion.
