Would it depend on how the demil requirement is set for a particular weapon? For the 1919 M2/M3 it is the right side plate (RSP) because that is the manufacture's company, weapon description and serial numbered section. Earlier demils of the PM 1910 called for both side plates be destroyed citing ea...

Kleist,
That's an MG3 bipod and will run around 68.00 USD. Newer MG3 parts have the NATO stock numbers pressed onto the parts.

It's 5 posts until you start a new money pit... LOL Once you are really free to roam, the '42 or '34 will start to burn a hole in your pocket, much the same as the 1919.

Welcome!

Man, everytime I get a chance to go on leave I miss the great deals. The ad is pulled, and the link no longer is valid. I guess someone could post a picture so we can see what the pieces looked like. What was the cost for the pieces?

IMA are selling 75rd DT-15s for the MG15. It would be nice if they had a picture of the front and back for the customers to see.

US1945, that is a 75rd mag for the MG-15. If it was for an MG-34 the numbers would have different numbers, not FI 46300, and it is marked DT-15, the front would be different. [adjustments for spring tension]

Hardest job in the military

I was on tap for casualty notification, a one week duty that we get every once in awhile... Got a call this afternoon to report for duty in Class A's. Needless to say bringing some familiy member news of a death is never easy. This is a pretty tough job, and lucky for me the family took the news &qu...

I was just on IMA's website and didn't see it. I guess some Joe must have bought it and they took it down. I wanted to see the internal compartments. The complete dummy Portugese contract only has a partial picture of the case with MG34. The link provided by 762x51 does have very good shots http://w...

To bad it wasn't long enough or maybe close enought that you could see if there were holes or the long opening on the shroud or their eagles were reveresed on their uniforms. Maybe if someone recorded that segment, they could run it in slow motion. It still seems that the film was reversed when it w...

Reichpapers,
I think those are original straps. I don't have my Universal Machinegun book with me, but those straps are clearly illustrated in the book.

I agree with nlander on prices, IMA had the mags for $495.00 in excellent condition - well taken care of, no scratches or dents. We are assuming naturally that you are talking about the MG-15 doppeltrommel, and it should have these numbers: D-T 15 Nr FI 46300 also you will see a makers code, a year ...

Thanks for expanding this post Blanksguy! Now I just need to get to the books and start learning the proper nomenclature of the parts.

The ratchet plate is the plate that the cocking lever slides on. BRP calls it a ratchet plate, their older plates had half dimples, and their new version looks more correct, with full dimples. I'm sure that there is a correct name for that part, but like other weapons, people sometimes make up their...
