MG 42 Spare Barrel Carrier

Recommended Posts

Here is the Laufschutzer 42, a spare barrel carrier designed for the MG42. It was introduced in 1942 and used till the war ended. There was a a new carrier called the Laufschutzer 43 which allowed for the MG 34 or 42 barrels to be carried inside. This particular version is the Laufschutzer 42, which is clearly marked on the end. You see a lot of these coming out of Yugoslavia and nearby regions today, and it's not uncommon for them to be repainted or to have new slings added.
