    ~ WW1 German 1918 New Specification Spandau MG08/15 Machine Gun ~


    This particular new-specification MG08/15 was deactivated in 2011 and comes with its certificate, dated 3rd November 2011.

    The MG08/15 retains its original brown painted colouring with dark wooden butt.

    The top plate is stamped '2013 MG08/15 Gwf SPANDAU 1918'. The serial number is 2122, which has been stamped along the left side plate.

    Please refer to the pictures for the internal marks and stamps.

    The machine gun can't dry fired but it can be partially cocked as the internals move.

    The belt feeder, the stock and a number of other components can be stripped.

    The MG08/15 had been designed to be manned by four trained infantrymen spread on the ground around the gun and in the prone position. To accomplish that purpose the MG08/15 featured a short bipod rather than a heavy sled mount tripod, plus a wooden gunstock and a pistol grip. At 18 kg, the MG08/15 was lighter and less cumbersome than the standard MG08 since the MG08/15 had been designed to provide increased mobility of infantry automatic fire.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel has a length of 24 inches (61 cm). The gun, from the tip of the barrel to the end of the butt, has a length of 51 inches (129.5 cm). Whilst on its legs the gun has a total height of 19.5 inches (49.5 cm).

    It weighs 13.55 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The gun has some minor scratches to the surface and the water jacket has a few dents, some deeper than others.

    The wooden aged butt its overall condition remains good with war marks on it.

    The flash hider at the muzzle is missing.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £35 or you can pick up the gun from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
