Deactivated Old Spec Rare German MG08 7.92mm Machine Gun in very good, original condition and 1918 DWM manufacture, with many DWM and Imperial German stamps throughout. Complete with tripod, rare anti aircraft tripod adaptor, AA spider sight, and stock bracket. The MG08 was adopted in 1908 as the Standard German heavy machine gun for all branches of the military. It served on all fronts in WWI as the standard heavy machine gun and was still in use in bunkers and with secondary front line Nazi units until the end of WWII. It was an adaption of the Maxim design and despite appearances, it was not nearly as heavy as it looked and made a very good, reliable infantry weapon that was capable of accurate fire out to ranges of 2000m.
