MG 81 Aircraft machine gun (de-activated) MG 81 Aircraft machine gun (de-activated)
This is an extremely rare example of this specialist Luftwaffe 2nd WW aircraft gun. Normally these sell for in excess of £4-5,000 each but this example is missing the wooden grip and some of the belt feed mechanism. You can see the comparison with the complete example shown (this gun is currently not for sale). We can arrange to have a copy of the grip in walnut made, and maybe the other parts, copied from our pattern example, but at further cost. The pictures also show a typical installation in a German aircraft, but often they were twinned with another MG 81 as you can see in the photo. Please note that the only gun we are offering is the single on with the missing butt and the other pictures are for interest only.

Please note that the magazine that may be shown in this photograph is now NOT included in the sale. Please see separate note in our Terms and Conditions.
