So, what you you lot know about dust/breech covers for the mg34? Reading Myrvang's excellent 'German Universal Machineguns', he mentions the short cover, but doesn't mention the longer cover shown at MG34. The grey leather straps look a bit odd to me on this one - expecting brown leather...
So... Is the long breech cover a post war invention, or was it around during WW2?
Any advice graciously received.
