Mike,

Aires is expensive.

Aires has a flex set. There's a comment in this article about this set:

Aber also makes a set of barrels. Now your MG's are getting expensive.

The less expensive, but now hard to find, are the Paragon resin guns. Nice flex and fixed gun sets, six of each in bag as I recall. See them on eBay from time-to-time.

Likely other resin/PE/brass sets that I don't know about or forgot.

It is better to be the stomper rather than the stompee!

Wow! If I ever need a 1/48 model of a Browning Heavy Machine Gun, Caliber .50, HB, M2 I know where to get one. The HB means heavy barrel and is not often installed in aircraft. The more common version in US aircraft, especially in WWII, was the Browning Heavy Machine Gun, Caliber .50, M2, Aircraft Basic. This had the long, perforated barrel jacket and weighed 64 lbs. The HB weighed 81 lbs. I assumed that the question was for a 1/48 aircraft basic gun.

That's $4 PER GUN plus shipping, and you still need a plastic reciever
