SdKfz 251/250 machine Guns

I also thought these halftracks were equipped with an MG34/42, I have now been told that the passengers used the mounts for their own machine guns and took them with them when they disembarked leaving the vehicle with no weapons. Can anyone throw some light on this for me?

typically equipped with an own MG and an empty MG mount at the rear of the vehicle which was then often used to mount the MG of the accompanied infantry
