German MG08 Spandau 1917 Description
Beautiful original German World War One MG08 machine gun on sled mount. Camoflage paint pattern has been applied by a private museum. Gun and sled mount are in very good condition. The mount top strap does not appear attached but is included in later photos. The front water jacket armour in the photo is replaced by the camo painted armour shown later and is original. Also included is reproduction water jacket top armour, camoflage painted and shown in photos. This is not our deactivation but the work is satisfactory. The topcover opens, bolt retracts but does not cock and click. Cannot chamber a round and cannot be disassembled. This item is a true museum piece or the Holy Grail for an advanced collector.
