7.92mm mauser inert odd


#1

I saw these on an auction site. All 4 are joined and no way to seperate so not used as a dummy or for action testing… Anyone know what these may have been used for?


#2

I think they were for an MG belt starter, probably the MG34 or 42.


#3

Ok that makes sense…It said dummy for MG15 drum…is all it said (in French). Never thought of s belt starter. Thanks


#4

No belt starter here. It is the feeding piece in an MG15 drum as it has to follow the feeding path around the corner.

This was discussed before already:

Similar "False Cartridges " are to be found in 100 round Bren Pans, in 7,7SR T89 Pans, in DP, DT and DA 7,62x54R Pans. and Vickers K pans.They ensure that all Live cartridges are fed into the gun.
