SOLD!! MG34 with Gebirgesjager Lafette and accessories SOLD!

Postby lampwick » Wed Aug 23, 2006 6:15 am

A scarce Lafette tripod made for use by the German Mountain troops. The top section has two WaA 200 stamps and is dated August 1940,with the serial number 158 (one of the earliest seen) and is stamped S232, which is the same as fsu, the code for
Brandenburger Fahrradfabrik und Waffenfabrik.
The lower section, complete with spare bolt box, was manufactured in 1943 when these tripods first came into use and is marked with the code for
K.Urbanovsky GmbH, Werk Zastavka bei Bruenn und Segen Gottes (Rosice) bei Bruenn
on the search fire mechanism.
This section has extendable rear legs which swivel through a wide arc to ensure firm footings on uneven terrain. The tripod is painted in ‘Dunkelgelb’ tan with red oxide undercoat and has some green over paint. Pads are original canvas. Slings are post war.
This tripod is coupled with a near MINT deactivated MG34 dated 1943 and having most parts matching numbered.
The top cover has the code for
Johannes Grossfuss,
Metall- u.-Locierwarenfabrik, Doebeln, Saxony and the
Rheinmetall-Borsig 1943 stamp.
The gun comes with a bipod, sling (copy), AA sight, 50 inert rounds with starter tab in a WWII dated ammunition can and a full 1943 dated gunner’s pouch with all components code stamped. There is everything usually found in it with the exception of the small plastic container for sulpher.
The set is completed with an MG-Z34 optic sight made by
Voightlander-Braunschweig
with both filters present plus optic brush in it’s metal can with very rare canvas sling and a reticule illuminator with battery box with the cxn code of EMIL BUSCH AG, OPTISCHE INDUSTRIE RATHENOW.

£3750 plus £50 carriage in the UK. For sale to EU countries only I'm afraid.

I've just been informed that the gun is in such a good condition because it was one of 1000 made for delivery to Portugal in 1943 and thus saw little or no action.

Nice. The mgz transit can has been modified to allow for the transport and storage of the periscope. There is one sight and two cans: what's in the other can?

It's empty. I bought an MG-Z42 optic sight to go in it and found that the base of the sight is too big to go right down to the bottom of the can. So I have a spare can and a spare sight. Perhaps I should put them into the F/S forum!.

This is a great thread about some really neat equipment and a Portugal contract MG34 and a mountain lafette.
Cool!!

I remember seeing this and copying the pics years ago so I'm happy to find this thread again and link it into the MG Z optics thread.
