Techron,
You didn't read my original post did you?

I am restoring the tripod.

It is an MG42 used by the German army from late 1942 onwards.

"I Repeat, DO NOT PAINT IT. You will destroy the value".
What can I say, as the owner of a genuine 1944 Gustloff Werke MG42, 1943 Lafette 42, Mgz34 optic and accessories.

I have no spare barrels and it is a UK deactivated weapon.

It definately does not belong in a museum where it would get a nice sheen of rust and a covering of dust. Museums generally do not give a monkeys about their stock. The best stuff is in private hands where it is well cared for.

Tom.
