Original German Post War MG3 Tripod with M53 Display Gun

Item Description

Original Items: Only One available. The belt-fed German post WWII MG3 is notable for reliability, durability, simplicity and ease of operation. It had the highest average rates of fire of any single-barreled light machine gun; between 1,200 and 1,500 rpm, resulting in a hellish muzzle report.

This tripod works with MG3, MG1, MG42, or M53. Part of the MG3 configuration was this rock-steady Ground Tripod as used by infantry troops:

• Tips the scales at a hefty 48 lbs
• Fully adjustable 19" legs
• Horizontal and vertical height adjustments
• Original tripod-mounted scope, which made the MG3 accurate out to dang near 4,000 yards (better duck!)
• Enables full 360° gun rotation.

The M53 is a true display gun with some original parts and a resin cast receiver and resin cast barrel, the top cover, pistol grip assembly and barrel jacket are all original. A nice inexpensive way to display a clone MG42 WWII Machine Gun!
