Original German WWII ZB 37(t) Display Machine Gun with Ground Mount Tripod, Ammo Can & Belt
Original Item: Only One Available. This rare excellent condition ZB 37(t) built from original parts and constructed on a legal non-firing BATF approved display receiver. The In 1938 the Germans took over the part of Czechoslovakia called the "Sudetenland" with a high ethnic German population. Then in 1939 they took over the remainder, immediately pressing the famous Zbrojovka A.S. arms manufacturing plant in Brno into production for the German Army. For the next year or so full production was continued of Czech Models ZB 26, ZB 30 and ZB 37 all ended in 1941 when BRNO was tooled up to make the MG 34 which was Coded "dot" and became the biggest MG 34 manufacturer of all.
The ZB 37 (t) was one of the finest medium machine guns in the world at the time being constructed almost as precisely as a Swiss watch. Apparently, it was a dream to shoot and was made to the highest of machining standards.
This is an original German captured ZB37(t) display machine gun rebuilt from all original parts, complete on an original BRNO manufactured tripod set up for ground fire. It is correctly marked on the left side of the receiver:
This is the standard marking for the factory. The receiver is also marked KUL[OM]ET V.Z. 37, the Czech designation for 'Machine Gun model 37'. These markings are partly obscured by the repaired flame cuts in the receiver.
This really is a fabulous set in museum grade condition, complete with an original can and belt (where permitted). Ready to display!
