Early MG34 bipod '993 1939'
A very nice original steel bipod for the German MG34. As to be expected with a relatively early example such as this, the part is very well marked. The head is clearly maker coded and dated '993 39' to denote production by Siemens Elektrowärmer G.m.b.H., Werk Sörnewitz, in 1939.
There are also many matching 'WaA710' markings visible throughout, including on the width adjustment knob, which is also still in full functioning condition. Quite a hard part to find these days, and a perfect one with which to complete any MG34 that is in need!
