    Nice collection MG1918,

    I have a soft spot for the MG08/15 - the costs involved are just too much for me to start collecting them - very sweet to see such a nice trio, though.

    I am behind on restoring my WW2 heavy metal and those are expensive enough, lol.

    Amateur gun restorer,
    Looking forward to seeing your progress on the MG, what a cool project, so great that they are taking the time to restore it, and not just let it rust away. Being Canada, will you have to fill it with weld like the other deacts up there?

    Great stuff, guys,

    Pit.

ID:	424270What we thought looked like a random bullet hole looks like the gun was fired on while being carried on shoulders by the front legs. The bullet hole enters from the bottom pan and exits into the side of the oil box. The angle of the entry and exit would make this very possible that the gun was actually on someone's back at the time.
