Original German WWI Maxim MG 08/15 Ammunition Belt Drum

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This genuine World War One Maxim MG 08/15 belt drum is marked in original paint Feuer! Kurbel hoch (Fire! – Handle up). Exterior of the drum retains about 80% of its green paint with the balance showing as rust and corrosion, typical of these vintage original drums. The drum opens and closes fully and the locking catches operate as expected. The interior spool is absent. Overall condition is good, it is completely solid and will add to any MG 08/15 display.

Maxim MG08/15 100 round drum magazine was introduced by the German Army in 1917. The drum magazine is constructed of pressed metal construction and fits on the right side of the Maxim 08/15 machine gun. The magazine has a metal hinge cover that is opened to accommodate a 100 round cloth belted loaded ammunition belt. Once the belt is loaded, a mechanical crank handle engages the ammunition belt and the proper tension is adjusted by a lockable cam mechanism.
