Adlers Nest
Cal.30 M1919A4 Barrel
Adlers Nest 1:35 Set #ANM-35004
Review by Terry Ashley

For their forth set Adlers Nest have provided one .30Cal M1919A4 Machine gun barrel which can be used on any .30cal MG from WWII to recent times, with many still use by various countries today and is applicable to vehicle mounted, infantry or aircraft mounted weapons.

The barrel consists of two finely turned brass parts, the inner barrel and outer perforated cooling jacket with the barrel being drilled out slightly and also includes the two small notches on the muzzle tip so typical of the .30cal.

The two part fit snugly together and if you really wanted to get picky you could say the jacket is slightly too think as can see more daylight either side of the barrel on the real thing, but as said that is really nit picking.

Fitting the barrel to any available .30Cal MG is very easy and I have used the gun from the recent Academy M3 Lee kit for this example and you simply cut off the kit barrel, drill a small hole and insert the end of the brass barrel, nothing could be easier.

Another excellent barrel from Adlers Nest to add that bit extra detail to your .30 Cal MGs from any period from WWII through to current times and the minor work needed to fit the barrel makes it easy to fit.

Recommended 8/10.

Thanks again to me Credit Card for the review set.
