Original German WWII 8mm Danish Madsen Machine Gun Tripod Mount

Regular price $1,195.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Madsen tripod has a particularly important place in the history of machine guns; the Madsen tripod was the very first machine gun tripod to incorporate soft recoil. This feature greatly reduced or eliminated the effect of the gun's recoil on accuracy. The soft recoil feature allowed the gun to recoil straight back against a spring, which then returned the gun to its original position. This feature was later copied by German during WWII on the MG 34 and MG 42 Lafette tripod. The Madsen tripod was the FIRST to incorporate this feature, and thus has a very important place in the history of machine gun tripod development.

Tripod is offered in very good condition, with all original parts except for the barrel clamp, which looks to have been repaired or replaced at some point. Comes complete with remote trigger assembly as well as original shoulder straps. It is marked correctly with MADSEN and No 10862 on the traverse adjustment / trigger mechanism. We have not had these available for years!
