This deactivated MG53 is almost a mirror image of the World War two MG42, this is a Yugoslavian made weapon that uses 7.92 rounds feed by a belt into the top or by a drum magazine. The MG53 is renowned for its incredibly high rate of fire and accuracy, that coupled with it being easy to use makes it a well-liked weapon.
It has a deployable bi pod and a sling, gunners pack (see pictured) and some belt link. The top cover opens also.
The working parts of the weapon move back and forth under the pressure of a spring, but it does not cock and dry fire, The magazine is removeable and the safety catch functions.
All our weapons at JP Militaria are deactivated in the UK and are stamped with either London or Birmingham proof marks.
