That's cold war collectable's. Neil I believe you have had some dealings with them. This won't be British for that money and it would be mentioned in the description or colour (at least I only remember seeing green ones in British use) it would also need a wobbly bipod.

If anyone is interested I do know the seller through the book of face so I can always ask.

Hiya Shaun! :D ,

I've had a few bits and pieces from Jip, I think the last purchase was SMG mags at W&P. He has another Charlie G on his website, for about £200 more IIRC, and it's an Isreali one, as most out there are. I wish I had bought the British one when I saw it.

I used to loathe carrying the Charlie G in training - great useless lump of metal. At least with the GPMG you got to do lots of dacka, dacka dacka, even if you did have to do a lot of sprinting to flanks to give cover for the advancing rifle section.

I disliked carrying the 84 as well mate, it didn't pay to be the new guy in the section when they were in service. Now the Gimpy I would go out of my way to carry if there was a chance of letting some rounds off with it.

An old work colleague once told me he would always volunteer to make up belts of 7.62 as he would get to play with the GPMG. It became such a thing they stopped asking anyone else. One fateful day he happy made up several belts of the stuff, only to watch his expected prize being handed over to someone else....from what I caneed make out, he was the only one not to see the funny side!
