MG34 and MG42 Barrel Carriers Master Data Base

Postby 42rocker » Sun Sep 15, 2013 11:15 pm

What follows will be a "MG34 and MG42 Barrel Carriers Master Data Base" or so I hope, please help out.

Well trying to put something together on MG34 and MG42 barrel carriers. My goal is trying to show different years and manufacturers and changes in the barrel carriers. I'm going to try to make a data base with the listings by year then manufacturer.
I'm going to list this under MG34 accessories with a link in MG42 accessories.
Please don't post your pics in this thread start a new thread and post three or more pics and then pm me with your thread info and I'll link it in under this master thread. Please make your first pic of the whole carrier showing the clasp and the second pic of the complete carrier open and then the third pic showing the end with the manufacturers data on it. If there is something special on your barrel carrier then please post pics of that special area so we can all learn something about it.
Folke's book has a couple of pages talking about barrel carriers and their use and several different types, check it out if you get the chance.
I will also include at the end a listing about double barrel carriers. I don't have much to add on that one.

Lets see what type of a data base that we can make up together. I'm starting the data base out with the year of the oldest barrel carrier that I own. If anyone has more data please share it with us.

One of the things that I would like to show or see on your thread on each of the barrel carriers is;
1st type MG34 or MG42 or both
2nd manufacturer or not shown
3rd year or not shown
4th WaAmp or not shown
5nd round or does it have flats on one end or flats on both ends
6th barrel hold open
7th anything special or different
8th strap info, markings?, original?
9th carrier color info red under or

Anything else we should look for??

Therefore for my first barrel

MG34 only, Switz, 1939, WaAmp 710, round, has hold open, tab on side and different barrel rests inside, strap ?, red under two different color greens
