Well .... I'd at least like to know how to get one of these periscopes. I had no idea the Germans are still using what's essentially an MG-42. I noticed they're even changing barrels the same way. It's a great gun, but I'm glad I'm not on the receiving end of one of these. Does anyone know the caliber? Are they using 7.62 NATO? Something about this gun makes me respect German engineering.

If it's current production, it's 7.62 x 51 NATO.  The belt looks like it is M13 link.

Yep. Still using WWII technology. Go with what works until you make something better.

I've used one of those trench scopes. He had it for a mounted 1919, amazing how accurate it was .  Zeiss made it, so it was clear as well.

I think I'm digging that more than the MG.
