This is a TNW semi auto version of the Nazi era MG-34, one of the most beautiful machine-guns ever made in my opinion. All milled it was expensive to make, and was superseded by the stamped and thus less expensive, MG 42 only eight years later. Chambered in 8x57mm Mauser it was quite powerful. Belt fed but as you can see this one has the rare P34 75 round saddle drum. A lot of fun...

I was on the wise lite site earlier & saw what these go for there. Yikes! :-o

I bought a lottery ticket just for this Breda 8mm. Italian Bredas were in 8mm Breda caliber, but this is one of the Portugese contract in 8x57. I'm not holding my breath about the lottery ticket paying off, but it's fun to think about! SW

But it's gotta be fun!

The Breda went for $5050 which was a trifle rich for my blood. SW
