    These things were stock piled and issued post-war, too. As such, I suspect that the green paint is not WWII vintage.

    My guess would be 1940.

    Well, the maker mark hrh/40 indicates that it is produced in 1940. hrh is Daimon Fabrik elektrotechnischer Apparate GmbH (???)
    are you sure it is hrh ??

    The number 9437 most probably is the weapon number of the MG.

    btw, if the paint is original, it is very nice..... is there red under the green ??

    I'm pretty much sure it's hrh... look at the picture I took and see what you think!
    It's red there, but not under the overlayer of green, guess it's painted green because there is a darker green color underneath!

    It's brh

    According to Michael Heidlers book "Deutsche Fertigungskennzeichen" they did make Gurtkasten

    If the original paint is still under there I would try to remove the new layer of paint
