Michaels Machines MM23E

The Michaels Machines MM23E is a semi automatic clone of the HK23E Light Machine Gun. This belt fed gun is chambered for 5.56mm and feeds from standard M27 links.

Before you get your hopes up, I should point out that it is selling for just under $12,000 (at HKParts)! Although it should be noted that it is still cheaper than the Bushmaster ACR 😉

Show firing on full auto with registered full auto sear.
Sadly the Rock ‘n Roll setting is missing!

  1. It can be made legally fully automatic with a registered full auto sear … thats if you can find one for sale and can afford it!

    I always find it a bit strange, when you see people shooting these very expensive firearms, just to be shooting short range into a swamp. Can't they take it to a range, or some better set up?
