You Haven’t Seen the Czech ZK-383 Machine Gun Before, Right?

The obscure Czech ZK-383 Machine Gun is not known by many firearm enthusiasts.

Luckily Ian from Forgotten Weapons is here to tell us all about this interesting machine gun.

Watch and learn all about the Czech ZK-383 Machine Gun.

The Czech ZK-383 Machine Gun is quite a remarkable weapon. With a bolt weight that can be added or removed the rate of fire of this machine gun can be adjusted.

Shooting in the snow in Maine, Ian from Forgotten Weapons tests out the Czech ZK-383 Machine Gun. This machine gun started life in 1938. With the bolt weight removed, the speed incredibly increases to 750 rounds per minute. With the bolt weight installed the speed at which this little beauty shoots is 470 rounds per minute. Now that is pretty handy for certain.

Ian sure loves this little machine gun. What is there not to like from such a sweet little weapon that is long forgotten from history.
