Deactivated WWII German MG42 It was undoubtedly one of the best machine guns of the Second World War. So good was the design that MG-42 is still in production in modified forms in many countries. the MG42 had the fastest rate of fire of any weapon, at 1200 rounds per minute (up to 1800 in some versions). At this rate it becomes impossible for the human ear to discern the sound of individual rounds being fired, and thus when in use the gun makes a sound described as "ripping cloth It was nicknamed by American GI's as Hitler's Buzzsaw.
A genuine WWII MG42 not a post war manufatured example as found elsewhere. Deactivated in 1994 with a working action it can be cocked, stripped and dry fired. An excellent matching serial numbers example of a classic weapon.
