Hey All, just thought I'd share some pictures (with Mike's permission) I took yesterday while I visited with Mike Otte to check on the progress of my MM23e.
I'd like to thank Mike for taking the time out of his busy day to show me around and see his amazing collection of firearms (most HK products I've ever seen in one room) and test firing a couple of the MM23e's that he has done. It's been 20 years since I fired a machine gun on F/A so it was an absolute hoot.
My only concern shooting was trying to control my laughter. It was far too much fun!! The MM23e shoots so nice. It's really an outstanding rifle. Fit and finish were far better than any factory or clone HK rifle I have ever owned or fondled. I shot one of his MM23e's that has over 18,000 rounds through it. We looked inside and there is no way you would have ever guessed this rifle had 18,000 rounds through it. No marks or gouges on the rails, finish was perfect.
Well, on to the pictures. I have these in a larger size if anyone is interested just shoot me a PM.
Receivers in various stages of assembly. About 7 had feed mech's and barrels, another 5 had barrels, the rest were painted and ready for assembly.
The two that I test fired and are now ready to ship (you lucky bastards!!! lol)
On to one of his vaults:
Top two are HK23e's (one is unfired), bottom two are Coast Guard 21e's
PSG 1 from the movie Lethal Weapon (The actual rifle Mel Gibson used) and an MSG 90. I didn't get a picture of his MSG90A1 so you'll have to trust me that it is an awesome rifle.
