    Default on this MG42 magazine.

    Hello guys never posted on this section of the forum before. I'm interested in buying an MG42 magazine and i have found this one. It's unmarked though so i can't be certain that it is German WWII made. I know that Yugoslavian trommel magazines look like this but have some difference in details.
    Since i'm not an expert i would like to get your input on this item.
    Thanks in advance.

    I have already these starter tab and ammo belt that i will try to fill with bullets and then place them in the magazine. Those are German WWII made so that's why i need to find a German magazine also, to complete the set.

    from what I can see you got a nice german WW2 drum magazine, but don't lynch me if i*m wrong and it looks like it has some of the orginal paint on it under the light green
    !! But I'm not an expert on this YET

    Under the light green? You mean it is repainted? I thought it was the original color. And thanks for the info regarding the bullets

    Hey Rob thanks for the reply. Are you referring to the color or to the magazine or both?

    Hmm i think you are right Thomas. It seems to had this color and then repainted green? But why should they do that? Unless it was repainted postwar.
