Does any one have pics or drawings of the interior/exterior of the Doppel Trommel Magazine for the MG15/MG34?

Thanks

Mike

Not a great pic, but this is a true MG34 and not MG15 double drum

Was the MG-34 and MG-42 with drum magazine called "Sturm Maschinengewehr 34/42"? I read it somewhere and need to know if that's the right thing to say.

There are two different types of "Drum" magazines. The Dopell Trommel is an actual spring powered dual row, one row each side, magazine. Much like a standard box mag. The MG42 type is really a round carrier for a short coiled section of belted cartridges. The MG34 also used this type but only after the magazine feed cover was removed and the belt feed cover was installed instead.

How was the saddle drum magazine for the MG15 carried when it wasn't attached to the machinegun?
