The issue I.O.D. '89 is really nice. You see a unit marked one, for every 50 examples.

Thanks for the kind comments! A couple other pieces..

Feldpost of the Garde-Maschinengewehr-Scharfschutzen-Abteilung-Kompanie.3. using what looks to be a captured French Saint-Etienne Modele 1907.

Hello all,

I recently joined this forum and wanted to introduce myself.  I love MG08's and 08/15's and have been collecting the various bits and bobs associated with them, and will probably end up in debtor's prison...  Here is my 08/15 and a few doodads.

Hi Chris, no--the previous owner painted the water jacket but I thought it looked good so I left it.  I'll post more photos when I get a chance.

Nice.  No book for the employment of the Machine gun Sharpshooter Detachment?

Nope, but I am guessing that a lot of their training course revolved around that book on indirekt fire 😉

Hello Chris and the other Gentlemen , here in Argentina our Army used the German handbook for indirect fire with MGs translated to Spanish . with modifications relative to the main MG in use ,the 1917 28 Colt Browning water cooled in 7.65 mauser. from 1925 to 1978 the handbook was in use . the Colt Browning was in use until 1970 ,then replaced with the FN MAG in 7,62 NATO, but remained in service for the Movilization Bataillons , Well ,i forgot the indirect fire . as it was put in practice according the German handbook it was highly lethal ,specially against troop concentrations that believe to be safe benhind a ridge or a wood and a distances up to 3000 yards .
