    Default MG34 Snail Drum

    Hello
    Thanks for looking at my post. I am looking at picking up a drum magazine for my Display MG34. I was wondering if they came out in this color, or is it a post war repaint? The ones I see on History channel & YouTube look black to me!

    Thanks Again

    Its hard to see the colour of this one but If this one is green it could be a Yugo army used one

    I have seen the colour in the pics on other Yugo kit such as ammo boxes and spare barrel cases.

    This one is indeed post war Yugoslav production. Note the colour and markings.

    Cheers, Ade.

    in France, it's not easy to find original drums, now. The rarest are the camos and some with the number of the MG painted on.
    Perhaps on egun ?

    I have 2 of them - both HQU 43 - both are postwar Yugo reused, one even being stamped with a star on the bottom.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,
