MG08 15 'Spandau' Aircraft Machine Gun (deactivated) Serial No. 4441

MG08 15 'Spandau' Aircraft Machine Gun (deactivated) Serial No. 4441

£9,450.00

This exceedingly rare and famous gun is from a shot-down aircraft, and has some war damage to it, but has also some missing parts (mainly internal, but the visible feed block and spring cover for example are absent) and there is minor corrosion. The gun was found in storage in a private English boarding school suggesting an ex-RFC/RAF pupil surviving the Great War donated it as a war souvenir. Fitted to many German fighters in the 1st World War, this gun intriguingly shows a number of remnants of splashed on scarlet paint of a contemporary nature. To avoid raising your hopes, the guns for the famous Fokker Dreidecker of Manfred von Richtoffen are (speculatively) stated by P.J. Carisella to be 695 & 1795, but we can find neither confirmation nor the source of this information; an unknown number of German Great War aircraft were painted scarlet, so further research may uncover more of this guns intriguing past. Deactivated to EU specifications, it can be sent anywhere in the EU. We cannot send this out of Europe - especially to the USA - unless the buyer arranges an import licence and only then will we apply for an export licence from the UK (the cost of this can be advised).

£2.64

Aero Vintage Ltd


Aero Vintage Limited (AV) was formed in 1982 by Guy Black as a hobby with the idea of acquiring a small collection of vintage aircraft.

In 1990, Guy decided that there should be a theme to the aircraft he was collecting, which would be generated around the principle aeroplanes, being Rolls-Royce engined. So starting with an original 1917 Bristol Fighter along with the Hawker biplanes.
