Very attractive and mostly matching German World War II MG34. Although NFA registry indicates “Mauser” as manufacturer, this guns receiver, shroud and buffer cup are all matching and were manufactured by Waffenwerke Brunn (dot) in 1945. WaA proofs confirm this, and correction to registry may be requested incidental to paper form 3 transfer should the buyer desire this. No post-war Israeli markings. Top cover never serialized and manufactured by Grossfuss (bpr). Buttstock cup and buttstock serial 727. Accessories include, in addition to what is on/in the gun, original pebble leather gunners kit with spare (non-matching) bolt, wrench, AA spider sight, hot barrel mitt, and green rubber muzzle covers. Also included are three original ammo cans with ten metal belt segments and approximately 300 rounds of berdan primed non-corrosive Portuguese ammunition, and one original 50 round tan assault drum. None of the bolts or barrels match the gun’s serial number. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is extremely fine original finish with some loss of finish turning to a gray patina at the high edges. Much less finish on the feed tray, which enhances the indication that this is a good running gun. Generally, if the shrouds match the receivers, and the wear patterns indicate it, the MG-34’s run well. Mechanics are fine. Bore is very good with evidence of firing long ago. Bolts all are fine. This is a select-fire machine gun. A great example of the iconic classic machined steel German belt fed machine gun from World War II in great condition to take to the range. THIS IS A NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT ITEM AND REQUIRES BATF APPROVAL PRIOR TO TRANSFER. THIS ITEM IS TRANSFERABLE ONLY TO ACTIVE FFL/SOT DEALERS ON AN ATF FORM 3 BUT MAY BE RETAINED BY SOLE PROPRIETOR FFL/SOT HOLDERS WHEN THEY RELINQUISH THEIR LICENSES UPON BATF APPROVAL. JWK 2019-10-49
