Hi all,

Not a German machinegun but..... :roll: ....Can somebody identify this machinegun?
I think a Swedish Kulspruta m/14-29 or Kulspruta m/36 ....

I believe that these are more likely the the earlier Swedish version of the Schwarzlose Machine Gun Model 07/12. The receiver and barrel water jacket do not correspond to a version of the browning.

Ummhhh....I believe that neither the machine gun mechanism body nor the vertical grips correspond to a Schwarzlose machine gun....

Clearly a Browning derivative, likely the Swedish version

Hi LineDoggie

According to my information there were two different models of Browning machineguns in Swedish service:

-the 6.5mm Kulspruta m/14-29, a water cooled Browning M1917 equipped in Sweden with a water cooling jacket and the tripod from the Schwarzlose MMG Ksp m/14.
-the 6.5mm or 8mm Kulspruta m/36, a Swedish version of the Browning M1917A1.

However, the cradle used in Kulspruta m/36 seems different to those of the machineguns of my images.
See https://www.gotavapen.se/gota/artiklar/ ... /ksp36.htm

I think It is most likely to be 6.5mm Kulspruta m/14-29 machineguns on AA tripods with a specific design cradle for this use....

Hi!
Yes you are right, this PzB38, apparently this gun had different types of front sights.

Thank you, karlik. There are very few good images of the PzB38, to can compare...
