Jesus I'd hate to be on the other end of that.
No kidding... I am pretty sure that was a string of 150 rounds. Talk about mowing down some infantry. I wonder what caliber it shoots.
Holy crap... it shoots 7.62s.
Oh yea, and this is the gun that they called "Hitler's Zipper".
unless it is a MG3, in which case it was 7.62x51
The sound was awesome, how there wasn't the boom until the very end.
1500 rounds per minute cycle rate... too bad its german or i would buy one
Yeah that's a 42. The MG-3 has a much slower cyclic rate of fire. And that's on the standard 50rnd belt.
I love shooting all my friends 42s and will be a serious looker for one in the coming months if I can find one at the right price.
I remember reading that the absurd cyclic rate of the MG42 was a problem in combat. It ate ammo at an alarming pace, and required frequent barrel swaps.
Good thing about the 42 is it only take 15 or so seconds to swap barrels.
I just googled the gun name and it said it shoots 7.62s and fires 1300 rounds per minute.
Well that site is retarded because a 42 is 8mm. The MG3 is 7.62, but at that fire rate in the video. This isn't a MG-3.
almost every modern machine gun was based off of the MG42. its a great machine, like most german machines.
Standard Belt for MG42/34 was 50 rounds, of course you can link bets . anyway it could be an MG42 with a .308 barrell, 8mm is far too expencive to shoot like that.
IIRC, the 34s standard belt length was 75 rounds, thats what fit into the drums
Also, since when is 8mm more expensive then .308? Unless you are buying commercial 8mm...
MG grade 8mm is hard to find.
yes drums were 75 rounds, but belts for MG34/42 were 50 rounds, that can be linked.
what is the difference?
Nigga you crazy. If I ever had the money or opportunity to get one, I sure as hell would.
I love the german wepaons.
Isnt it loaded hot or something?
Some 21 videos. rofl at this one
damnit if only i could afford a full auto, i'd already have one
hes jewish in case you didnt notice...
And your point?
