Schwarzlose Maschinengewehr M. 7

I ended the year with this new addition to the collection: a Schwarzlose Maschinengewehr M. 7. This was the standard issue machine gun in the Austro-Hungarian Army throughout World War I. This example was later reissued to the Romanian Army, and the water jacket extended (the gun was repainted too and matches my Romanian WWII helmets) as it was rechambered.

While technically in this configuration it is a WWII MG I'm still rather pleased with it. This has a dummy receiver of course and can't fire but it displays well with my collection.
