Description

An exacting reproduction of the infamous MG 34 machine gun, made of metal, wood and plastic, with simulating loading and firing mechanism, and mobile bipod.

The MG 34 (Maschinengewehr 34) is a German recoil-reloading and air-cooled machine gun, introduced in 1934. It is considered the world's first general-purpose machine gun (light, bipod-equipped and heavy, tripod-equipped). It is capable of sustaining a high volume of fire, without sacrificing movement speed, or tactical flexibility. It was in service from 1936 to 1956.

The main design of the MG 34 was carried out by Heinrich Vollmer of Mauser, who was based on a model by Louis Stange of Rheinmetall, which had just entered service in Switzerland.

The MG 34 could use either 50- or 75-round tape drums as well as 50- or 250-round ammunition tapes. The ammunition it fired was 7.92 x 57 Mauser caliber and had an effective range of 1200 m with a bipod and 3000-3500 m with a tripod. It had a rate of fire of 800-900 rounds per minute, much higher than the British Bren or American Browning machine guns, which had a rate of fire of about 500 or 600 rounds per minute.

The German Army had managed to manufacture a multipurpose machine gun, and with which their divisions, both armored and infantry, were equipped. Even the German air force used a version of the same model, albeit modified for use in aircraft. Only about 350,000 units were manufactured due to their high cost due to their laborious and careful manufacturing.

Today, there are still many armies in the world that employ machine guns developed from the basic configuration of the MG 34.

    Excellent. One of the best values in reproductions. Had to wait 6 months for mine but worth it. I recommend you get on the pre-order list as soon as possible to secure your place in line for one.

    Denix MG-34

    Best ever replica for the price.At 315.00 you cant go wrong. Only cons are the top cover doesnt open , the rear sight is cast in one piece and isnt adjustable. The front opening on the front sight is to large for the AA spider sight.Other misc moving parts are one piece also.trigger , top cover release etc.But the value in price and quality are excellent for the price.If all those things were engineered into this like a Shoei you would be paying 2000.00 and not 300. Great item from Denix . Great Price for a heavy replica. AAAAAAA ++++100%!!!!!!!!!!!

    Denix MG34

    I find this Denix MG34 a very nice display piece for my World War II collection. It's very detailed and a stunning display piece for a very reasonable cost. I had a dummy MG34 made up of original pieces with an aluminum receiver which I foolishly sold for three times the cost that I paid for this beautiful replica. A few drawbacks are that the bipod adjusting nut does not turn, the rear sight does not elevate, and the receiver top cover to load the ammunition does not open. I'd say that was the biggest drawback because it's hard to pull an ammunition belt through the receiver for display purposes. But overall I'm very pleased with this replica gun and I have no hesitations in recommending it to anyone needing a credible display piece for their collection for an extremely reasonable cost. Personally, any replica firearm I purchase, I would have no hesitation buying from Replica Weaponry. The best prices, very reasonable shipping cost, and stellar service.

    Very well finished with attention to the details. Accessories like a 50 round drum that fits and an opening top cover would be great. Well done Gun.
