Original German WWII MG 13 Display Light Machine Gun Parts Set with Magazines
Original Item: The MG 13 Adopted in 1931, this was a time when German rearmament was prohibited according to the Treaty of Versailles which followed Germany's collapse at the end of WW1. In order to disguise development the Germans designated this weapon MG 13 reversing the numerals in 1931 to 13. Hitler had already taken power by 1934 with the introduction of the MG 34 and by then the gloves were off and Germany saw no need to hide their renewed armament program.
Somewhat similar to the MG 34 in outward appearance, the MG 13 was magazine-fed using a 25 round box magazine. However, it was also designed to accept the 75 round saddle drum. The bipod was virtually the same as the MG 34 and the antiaircraft sight was identical and therefore interchangeable. It had a folding butt stock and had a swiveling carrying handle on the ventilated barrel jacket. It was supplied with an optional flash hider of considerable length for use only under sensitive combat conditions.
This parts sets contains all parts except the flash hider and the receiver has been flame cut to BATF specifications. Included in the set as photographed are the barrel with barrel jacket assembly and carrying handle, trigger group assembly, butt stock assembly together with bolt, recoil spring and all internal parts, sight, etc. You also receive the magazine housing which slots onto the receiver and one 25 round box magazine. In addition this set comes with seven additional 25 round magazines (8 total) all similarly marked in their twin magazine pouches with carry belt, making this an extremely desirable set ready to display.
All parts are in generally very good condition.
