MG34/42 hot barrel change pad '1943'

£0.00Price

A very nice original hot barrel change pad for the MG34/42, maker marked and dated 1943. 

 

Due to the high cyclic rate of both of these weapons, overheating barrels during sustained fire was a notable issue. Therefore, this accessory formed an essential part of the MG gunner's kit - yet is a component which is very often missing from such sets today... 

 

This is a guaranteed original wartime example, amidst a market which is now full of both reproductions and post-war variations.
