    Default Mp43/1

    Hi all,
    please find pictures of a MP43/1 made by Haenel in 1943. There is no notch on the rail (latter type). Waa 37 nearly everywhere.
    the mount is a copy of course . The scope is a genuine ZF41 scope.
    deactivated weapon.
    regards

    What a fantastic example of a rare weapon, with a much rarer optic and mount.

    Thank you very much for sharing it with us.

    It is deactivated Dave.
    It is really complicated to own such a weapon in its original condition in France.

    Things may change in the future, but for an automatic rifle, it will remain difficult.

    Nice weapon by the way, Xavier!

    Default Color

    Love to see these in color ! In the books they look so grey and dull. With all the mixed finishes I think they are striking. Thanks for posting.
