by Julius A. Rasmussen and Theodor Schouboe, manufactured post-WW2 by Dansk Rekyl Riffel Syndikat A/S for Portugal. 7,92x57mm Mauser 30-round removable box magazine, air-cooled long recoil automatic fire, mounted on a Danish tripod.

Converted by Midwest Metal Creations from a Chilean contract 7,92mm Madsen light machine gun - serial number 171. 7,62mm Nato 30-round single-stack removable box magazine, long recoil sem-automatic.
