    After many years, many books consulted, museums visited, and original weapons taken in hand, I decided to tackle this topic.
    I continue to see "experts" in arms, collectors, meticulously describe this beautiful weapon, without noticing this blatant post-war reassembly error!
    The sling ring on the left !!!

    Sling ring on the left, maybe this guy started it. A special forces soldier in Vietnam in the early 1960's.

    Certainly a weapon disassembled and badly replaced, absolutely impossible to happen in the German army!

    Other pic from Vietnam war, probably supplied by the Russian ally, not disassembled, in original conditions

    Truly not rebuilt by experts , But that is not a hard change to make. The barrel nut does come off. I've made a wrench out of 1" thick micata for that purpose!
    I've done it on my Parts Kit MP40. Waiting for a Registered Tube to find at a decent price. Yeah I'll be putting that on my Bucket list!!!
