(drum holder) top cover for the MG34. This accessory was designed to allow any MG34 to accept the 75 round. This particular example of the double drum top cover is presented in very nice overall condition, albeit with some slight pitting (although this is mainly to the underside) and the remains of dried storage grease. All parts are fully functional, including both of the spring-loaded drum doors, release button and locking latch. The cover is marked with the serial number'2521b' and this number matches throughout on all of the small parts.
As is typical, the larger Waffenamts have been lined though, however, all of the smaller stamps still remain. Given that these read'WaA4', production of this piece can be attributed to. This piece was used almost exclusively by armoured units - in combination with MG34s mounted on. Kfz250 / 215 / 222 / 223.
Overall, this represents a very scarce accessory for the MG34 and is surely a must-have item for any MG collection!
