Wffm. converted Laufschützer 34 barrel case 'brc 43'
An extremely rare example of a Laufschutzer 34 (MG34) model spare barrel case which has undergone Waffenmeister modification to be able to also carry the barrel of the MG42!
This example retains the majority of the original field grey paint and is also still fitted with the original canvas shoulder strap - with 'lux' marked fittings.
The case is marked to one end with the maker code and date 'brc 43' to indicate production by Fr. Weber & Co., Berlin. The serial number of the MG34/42 '4748' with which this accessory was used has also been field-applied to the exterior.
This example is just one of just three modified Laufschutzer 34 variants which we can recall observing and comes from our own personal collection along with another example in tan camouflage (listed separately).
When it comes to rarity, these examples would be almost impossible to upgrade and as such represent choice pieces for any serious MG34/42 collector!
