Product Information

This is a Yugoslav MG42/M53 with drum magazine and inert 7.92mm rounds mounted on a Lafette. The M53's were manufactured using the abandoned machinery left by the Nazi's after WWII, when the Yugoslavian's took over production it was renamed the MG42. Post war machine guns are identical to the Wartime models, we suspect that this example may have been assembled from Nazi parts. The receiver and top cover have had previous markings machined off. 

This great set includes a drum magazine containing a belt with inert 7.92mm rounds and Lafette with carry straps. A superb combination that would make a great centre piece.
