Hi everyone, I REAllY HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME !!
I have a MG42 DUMMY GUN on a Lafette Tripod.
This is in my private collection and, I also use it at our local
military museum for display when we have outside Historical
It may seem to be a Siliy question , But ............
I have a Non-Shooter on a Lafette. I would like to try to make a Mock MGZ Scope
out of Wood for the Lafette , Being as accurate as possible to the original.
Could anyone tell me The basic measurements of the MGZ Lafette Scope
shown in my photos. ( I HAVE POSTED PHOTOS OF THE MEASUREMENT
Please if able, send Measurements in INCHES, that would help.
I have NEVER handled one or seen one in person , so I don't know
where to start in Sizing it ??
I could not see spending the money on a Real Working Sight , Knowing
in fact it would be used for nothing but "Show".
It would be GREAT to find a "Burnt Out" or Non-Working Shell MGZ Scope.
I would consider purchasing that to fill the Optics Block, (at a reasonable price).
But for now , I want to try to make one out of wood, I already have the
Metal Sight Base.
I hope that you can help , I need a starting point to begin my Lafette
