    Hello Guys

    I just came back from a trip to some Soviet positions. We found an area with both German and Soviet positions and they have never been dug before. I am too wasted to post pics now after almost 4 days but will post pics ASAP! Found a 1933 Molot Factory Mosin rifle and a lot more of course. It's not often you find clean positions. Lot's of history there to be found!

    Cheers, Lars

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Many locations have been dug but there is still a lot to be found anyway Sometimes you get lucky and find untouched areas.

    Cheers

    Hello guys,

    So here are some pics of some finds. I will as always also post a video from the trip. I like to make videos because it captures the experience better.

    A strange item i am not too sire what is for. It looks like a mount for a machine gun and cannon but then again not It is very heavy and thick construction.

    Here we found a lot of RPG 40's. Soviet anti tank grenades. Quite rare as they rust away quite fast. A few Soviet F1's as well.

    A German drum magazine for machine gun. I have posted it in a separate thread to find out what it's for.

    A very nice condition 1933 Mosin rifle. The bolt i found about 8-10 meters away. I will guess it's from a captured Soviet soldier because bolt and rifle are separated. A few RGD33's and a PPsh mag as well.

    Nice finds mate, I always enjoy your updates

    The drum mag actually looks like a British Lewis gun magazine, but the rounds do look like 7.92 German rather than .303. I counted the 'bumps' around the edge of the mag and they match the Lewis mag at 25. Strange




    Possible explanation - Lewis gun of Czech origin chambered for 7.92x57mm Mauser ammunition.
