    The sight in the middle picture looks to me like it is very similar to an anti-aircraft sight off an German mg34.

    There are a lot of German weapon parts here, mostly MG-34.

    hi,
    Pic one, the piece with the little pulleys is from a cable layer, it actually helps when feeding the cable in or out. The piece under it is the locking catch for the barrel gate on a MG.42. Pic 2 is MG.15 parts and pic 3
    shows a couple of K.98 oilers and a mg.34 double ended spanner as well as some mg.34 muzzle covers. The 2 pieces of canvas are the handles from the card box which held 20 boxes of 15 rounds on 7.92 ammo.
    Hope it helps.
