Mg34 Wartime Finish

Postby Bigdibbs88 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 8:28 am

Hey guys- I have a question regarding finish on late mg34’s. For example a dot 1945 that by serial number is early enough to have been produced wartime and shows no post war markings but is phosphate. Did dot (or any makers for that matter) switch to phosphate on mg34’s during the war or is that a sure sign of post war use?

Thanks

I believe all wartime 34 were blued

Many 42 were finished with a clear phosphate of dubious value.

Thanks for the reply. I know dot switched to phosphate on some small parts on k98 assembly but, unlike most other makers, did not fully switch over.
