Wehrmacht MG34 heavy machine gun Lafette


Code: 10521

A Wehrmacht MG34 heavy machine gun Lafette finished in dark grey. The lafette could mount the MG34 machine gun and turned it into a long range defensive weapen that could fire either directly or indirectly. The foldd lafette could be carried on the back and when unfolded provided a stable three legged firing platform. The gun itself attaches to a cradle that dampens the recoil. An optical sight can be attached that allows for targeting up to 3000 meters distance. Controls allow the elevation and direction to be tightly controlled, the recoil varies the elevation slightly to increase the depth of the beating zone. The MG34 lafette offered is in excellent condition, with some wear and tear to the paint.  It has its original leather backpads still attached which are also in good condition. All mechanical parts appear to be functional. It is clearly maker marked, dated and Wa.A. stamped.

Note: this is a very heavy item (20 Kg net weigth) which will be expensive to ship, especially outside the EU.
