Deactivated Exceedingly Rare German Parabellum MG14 7.92mm Machine Gun. 1918 DWM manufacture in very good, original condition. The woodwork has been replaced at a later date. The Parabellum MG14 was introduced in 1914. It was an adaptation of the MG08 machine gun and was intended for use on aircraft and zeppelins. The belt-style ammunition feed was enclosed in a drum and the rate of fire was 700 rounds/minute. Although it first appeared in 1914, it was rendered largely obsolete the following year with the introduction of the gun synchroniser which allowed pilots to fire between their aircraft's propeller blades. It continued in service in applications where a synchroniser was unnecessary, such as armament for observers in reconnaissance aircraft, or defensive gunners aboard Zeppelins. This example is dated 1918 and was most certainly used in a Zeppelin well into the 1930s. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold a London or Birmingham proof mark and certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly and is legal within the U.K.
