Any special requirements to own that in your country? Can anyone own one of those? Very nice weapon. Looks real nice
I forgot to say that Swiss children can take part in our Federal Shooting Feast and shoot the STGW 90 from the age of 8.
nice to see the machine gun displayed on an Alpenflage poncho. I've chosen that pattern for my kin to use in SHTF. My Great and Great Great Grandmothers were Blumers from Glarus Canton BTW.In 1925 the Swiss army adopted the new 7.5mm caliber FM 25 light machine gun. In that time it was considered an innovative weapon. Equipped with a fire selector, it was very accurate and easy to maintain: only few second were needed to change the barrel and a lot of accessories were available for anti-aircraft of fixed-position use. Its main technical peculiarity is its "Luger-type" toggle-lock action. From a practical point of view it's a giant full auto Luger pistol. Never tested in war, it showed to be very reliable during the long years our soldiers spent training on the alps and waiting for the Nazi invasion that, thank God and the Americans, never arrived.
We shoot straight because we start early... In the Pic my daughter Chiara during the 2010 edition of the Federale Shooting Feast.Hey Swiss, when I was on a 2 month vocational training at Richterswil I joined a few times the Wädenswil shooting club. Very nice people and they let me shoot their " Obligatorische". Very impressive, their shooting skills at 300m with K31, StGw 57 and 90PE.
