This is an MG 08 in good condition, manufactured by the Germans in 1908 in Berlin in 1918. It is commonly referred to as a Sled Gun because when it is folded up it looks like a sled. It was designed that way so that it could be pulled on the ground to move it. It has an additional barrel with it. The gun is a sideplate gun, but it was a superb job and cannot be told from original. There is the extremely hard to find field sight mounted on the gun. I have only seen one of them in my lifetime. Shipping to be at buyer's expense and arrangement. Fires conventional 8mm Mauser ammunition. Subject to $200 transfer tax.
