Re: OMG! This PKM is awesome! Made in metal & wood by Frank.

The day when we actually have functional/operational 1:6 weaponry is the day when artificial intelligence achieves sentience.

;)

That is freaking awesome, but very pricey and will be for those who'll pay the $ for that level of authenticity, detailing, and functionality that is hand made/produced and not necessarily can be achieved immediately in a mass production environment.

BTW . . . I need to contact you about super cool 1:6 M-76 I saw online and was referred to you.

hope it will be much cheaper than the $1000/$1200 it was being sold on eBay for.

Honestly, I would pay that much I an instant for a piece of work such as this. Leaps and bounds beyond most of the stuff from Ti-lite, Soldier Story, Comanche products!

Mighty pretty work. Frank seems to share Jon's brilliance genes.

I would consider it when it is simplified and thus less expensive. In all honesty, my figures do not need this level of functionality in their weapons...

Chris, I think you're referring to a different PKM. The only one going in that price range on eBay, that I'm aware of is this one by Jon (Fullmetal): Custom 1/6 Scale Metal & Wood PKM w/ 100, 200 Round Ammo Cans & Tripod Rifle Gun | eBay

While these new PKM's are extremely nice, I also don't need that level of detail nor can I afford $150 or more for a single weapon. However, I will keep an eye out for news of the simplified versions.

Ah - that's the one! $150 is much better - but as you say, for me it's too much for me to afford for one weapon, but very nice.

Your all referring to my auction! LOL! I sell it much cheaper here, as all my auctions. You have to remember that one is factory made and the other hand made. So the hand made one is much more expensive, even though it does not do all the things the factory made one does. And I agree with you all about the level of detail is not necessary if your going to put it on figures. As for me, it is a bonus because I collect weapons as most of you know. Frank will try to keep it under $75, but to achieve this figure, he needs many of you to buy it. Many! I mean the bullet links or belt are very expensive to produce! Plus someone has to put the links together unless you want to put the links together with a microscope. That is unless he can produce rubber molds...

I have a Ti-Lite Lee Enfield which can be cocked and the trigger pulled. Same with the Soldier Story Tompson... and that can also be field stripped.
