    Default MG 34 1943 Matching,posibly unissued.

    I bought this one off of a Scottish museum,about 25 years ago.This was there best Nazi MG and talk of deactivation was in the air and so they suggested sending it out to the colonies to save it.
    This Brunn is apparently a rare portugese export model with its number of 355 on the top cover.Also the letters T A by the trigger group are for the portugese. The blue is also near commercial quality,not the dusty blue of the Nazi military.The barrel is also original matching.
    It is shown with some MG 34 xtras,the early Anti Aircraft front sight has the ERMA logo.The belt of Nazi ammo shown has an interesting history,it was assembled in Austria in 1945 along with other belts by a young teenager who found the belts and bullets to be plentiful,this gave him something to do.When he later imigated to New Zealand he bought them out with him.mg 34 033.jpgmg 34 002.jpgmg 34 005.jpgmg 34 006.jpgmg 34 010.jpgmg 34 043.jpgmg 34 012.jpgmg 34 027.jpgmg 34 025.jpgmg 34 050.jpg

    Wow! I have to admit I like your 38 with machined feed cover best still, but I have never seen an mg34 in this condition. Great

    Wow..thats a bueat...

    The 42 gets all the glory for its feed rate,but the 34 really is a better looking machine imo.

    Not as bulky looking and a lot of gun for its size.Compare the receiver to a .30Cal and it really shows a higher level of engineering.

    The bipod makes it a lot easier for quick emplacement and the lafette is superior to what we had in terms of a tripod.

    Great gun.. a real treat to look @ ...thanks for sharing.
