Wicked MG34 on War Pig

I got to asking a Jarhead I know about mounting an MG on War Pig last year and he said he knew another Marine who was in a movie production business of some sort. He said the guy had a bunch of cool stuff, used to ride a Ural and thinks he had a machine gun laying around somewhere.

He calls me up one day and says I gotta come look, he's got the MG in his shop so down I go - this is what I see:







MG34 (barrel stamp, as I recall, is 1942 or '43)
(x2) 50-rnd. drums w/carrier
(x1) 50-rnd belt w/inert ammo
AA sight
Carrying handle
Reproduction sidecar mount

I spent about 45 minutes going over the gear (read: playing with it and making "pew pew pew pew" noises). Although the MG34 is not numbers-matching it is in pretty good condition for what I intend to do with it. It looks like someone bought a parts kit and put it on the dummy receiver.

I had to pass on the deal last year because it was close to Christmas and the frogskins just weren't there, but a few months later inquired as to it's availability - turns out some other dude hauled off and bought the thing

Fast forward to last month and I start getting bit by the 'ole Machinegewehr bug again. I get to looking into options; building my own MG34 out of PVC and wood (surprisingly they look pretty good), mounting an airsoft RPK, cobbling my MG42 10/22 stock into something workable, etc. etc.

On a whim I emailed my buddy to see if his buddy had anything else lying about, or perhaps the deal with the other bloke didn't go through? Well whaddya know, he still has it because the other dude had to divert his funds elsewhere at the last minute

Today, my lovely wife is going to meet a dude she's never met in a gas station parking lot and pay cash for a Nazi machine gun out of the trunk of his police car

I have named it "BUZZKILL"

Yeah, I reckon I'll keep her around for a few more seasons... The reality of it is we've known each other since grade school and she's a Marine as well, so it is HIGHLY unlikely there is another woman out there that is better suited to tolerate my particular brand of bullshit...

Indeed she does. Her idea of a good day out is firing 7.62x39 jacketed HPs into a stream from the hip at the cyclic rate with me off her starboard quarter handing her stripper clips

The Girl went into the shop and saw it, the Boy wanted to see, then they wanted to play with it. SpyderWife toted it out to the back lawn and showed them how to "load" it (remember folks, this is a de-mil'd MG with inert ammo):



The Boy is mad because the Girl pulled rank and made him the A-Gunner

Nice pictures from a lucky fellow.
I heard a story from a Ural dealer in Holland of a guy who mounted a bazooka on his rig. Before out of his street some concerned citizens had called the police which came in force. They impounded the tube, gave him the cheapest ticket, just because they have to react to bigotry.

So, just enjoy your blessings, ride the flag of good humor, and keep supplying the troops with cool beer.
