Because of the fire selector button just above the trigger. Only the MP28 had that feature.
The rear sights are also different, but not visible in this picture.

Hi Sturm,

At one time speculated at viewtopic.php?f=71&t=84815&start=2025#p1243714 to be a Hungarian Chauchat modification but I feel it's a Frommer design; C.f. the patent drawing at viewtopic.php?f=71&t=84815&p=1538723&hilit=frommer+hungar*#p1538723

Hi all,

Not german machine-gun but...... :roll:

I need help with these US MGs. I think the MG is a 7.62mm Browning M1917 but, Any idea about the tripod? :?
I think it is not the standard M1917 tripod.

Hi Sturm,

Looks much like the M1917 tripod cf. http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m56 ... G_0926.jpg instead of e.g. the more common M1917A1.

I found this photo in ebay.com. What light machine gun is this?, Maybe a ZB 26/30?, the weapon don't have magazine, but looks the magazine is upper the machine, not under because the front sight is lateral.
Thanks for your help
