I believe it is the topcover for use with double drums,similar to the ones used on the mg13,but not the exact drums.Anyone linking to the picture-I found it took a while to come up,there are a lot of ads on the photobucket type page.But the pic is there.And welcome to the site-did you dig this up or find it somewhere? I am assuming it was not on the 34 when you got it.Thanks,you will get some good answers here. ---bil

It appears to me to be an adapter that was made by a Waffenmeister and not a production part.
I doubt that it is for the Doppeltrommel because the mounting and latch looks wrong.
Bil may be right in that it's an adapter for the MG13 magazines.

Let's hope that ww2soldiers will post a number of photos so we can make a good guess as to it's use.

Great find!!

That doesn't look like the double drum topcover, but a modified one for the MG13 mags is a possiblility, I'd never even thought of that.
