MG34/42 drum + carrier set 'wa 43'
A scarce tan painted drum (Gurttrommel) and drum carrier (Gurttrommelträger) set for the MG34/42.
This set is in completely 'as found' condition, with the factory-applied paint remaining intact to a decent degree on both items underneath the storage grease.
Both items are matching maker and date marked 'wa 43', denoting manufacture by Hugo Schneider.
As any MG collector will know, finding such a set that still retains the tan painted carrier is a very difficult task indeed!
