Re: MG08/15

In fact on the relic MG left hand side you can just make out the 'ejectir port' the hole on the face of the main body. Just behind the bipod as you look at it.

Re: MG08/15 and MG08 barrel interchangeability

They are the same barrel, identical. just check the 'front end' for the 08/15 for a screw on cap, which comes off.

Re: MG08/15

yes some great images, but not so great for this chap who stuck to his post! The German machine gunners were truly professionals and taken from the ranks for various attributes. Of course the MGC formed in 1916 were pretty good too :thumb up:

Re: Weapon identification time – need your help

Ref the German Mg sled configuration. Rather odd looking feedblock and not the standard MG08 issue pattern. I will need to look at the MG01 examples. But above all, look at the front armoured shield for the water jacket. Strange additions to it?? clamps or fittings?
