6/14/18 - This is a very attractive Reising M-50 with typical compensator and rear peep sight, and includes one original 25-rd mag and two reproduction 35-rd mags. The Reising M-50 was notably issued to Marines in the Pacific Theater during WWII as an alternative to the Thompson sub-machine gun which was in short supply. Although not well received by the Marines, these guns were also supplied to various police departments and utilized for decades after WWII. They have gained in popularity over the years with recreational shooting enthusiasts as a well made, relatively inexpensive entry level machine gun which utilizes readily available ammunition. This specimen with its excellent, high-glossy refinish and attractive wood likely was one of the police guns. Firing mechanism moves smoothly when operated by hand. This weapon is fully transferable on an ATF form 3 or form 4 as Curio & Relic eligible. Mechanics are fine. Bore is extremely fine, shiny and bright. No doubt this will bring many hours of enjoyment to a future owner.
