RE: operation/maintenance. Your best option is to find a field manual on the weapon. These manuals are occasionally sold on Ebay. I have the manuals for the Breda 30, but not the 37. There is a bookseller in Roma, Franco A. Volta that sells large numbers of Italian army manuals. You might contact that store.
Pictures. Pictures must be less than 50kb and les than 500 x 500 pixels. I use Adobe Photoshop to resize the prictures I post. Many photo software packages have a "save for the web" or something similar as an option under 'file'. Many times that 'save as' function will reduce the photo enough to post.
Now if you could make a Breda 30 for me..........
Have a great day!

hmmmm... as i recall Italian soldiers had exactly the same things to say about those two guns... i expect that the M30 will always give you problems, it wasn't a very good gun

as i recall it was designed to be able to fire 2 different types of ammunition (I forget the calibers) anyway, it wasn't a very good gun... although you should be able to at least get it to work

Great pictures! Impressive that you and your friend have both of these weapons fully functional. I assume that both weapons are fully automatic.
I am interested in the Breda 30 as it was the basic machinegun of the infantry. Does your friend do any outside weapon work? I have a Breda 30 parts kit that I would like to make into blank firing or gas. Full auto isn't an option (can't afford the associated costs). At this point I might settle for a display weapon.
Just asking to see if there is a possibility.

Does your friend feed it with the proper clip or does he use carcano clips? (I read somewhere it was also possible but only as a emergency solution)
From your pictures it seems rather that he uses the carcano clip. If you see that video you realize that the proper 20 round clip is a completely different affair.
Ops... I realize that the above could sound like telling the obvious to you gun freaks, hope you are not offended! :)
