1) Yes, MG-13, again with blank-firing adaptor.

2) Middle-mounted bipod on MG-34 was nothing exceptional.
AA tripod mount was also fairly common. (Not sure about the exact designation, but I suspect it was Luftwaffe item, used also with MG-13, MG-17, Vz.26, etc.)

However, combination of above two WAS a very rare sight! :wink:

MG09 and between the wars Reichswehr 08/15s. Great images - wish I had the 08/15 slings!!
If anyone wants an image or needs the adaptor pse ask - these are hard to find and there are copies in circulation.
The dreifuss 16 is the original German tripod and there are at least 7 nations who copied this and produced a similar looking tripod so if searching for the imprial version be careful 8O .

Hi all,

Another MG. I suppose it is a MG13, although I'm not sure:

Hello Sturm78,

Yes, this should be MG 13 — look at the arm, magazine housing etc.:
