Wow, two correct answers and an edit of one on the same minute.
The photo was from Waffen und Geheimwaffen des deutschen Heeres 1933-1945. -- Band 1. - Infanteriewaffen, Pionierwaffen, Artilleriewaffen, Pulver, Spreng- und Kampfstoffe. Haven´t the foggiest how the whole hog looks like although it´s often described to resemble an overgrown shotgun...in this case a drilling.

Thanks Markus, a truly odd gun. I would really like to see a complete picture of one, since shotgun-type weapons are something that interest me a lot. Next question should be easier. What is this:

Yes, and according to this site, the gun might be offered for sale. Chance of a lifetime for a collector with too much money, in that case.

Caliber .22, serial number 709.

Hint 1
The official German designation of this MG was shared with another Czech gun; more famous and quite different one.

I know this one now ... but damn it, I don't have a good follow up. Markus is just to good at stumpin' (and that pile of Waffen Revue sure does help). :)

Ok here we go: MG30(t)

And as I said I don't have a good follow up ... I used to have em but Markus is "trawling the same waters" so to speak.

It´s indeed a 7,92 mm MG 30(t); the German modification of a Czech modification of an English modification of a matured MG by an American emigrant of French Huguenot descent. Photo from (you guessed it) "Waffen-Revue" No.48.

Sorry for the crappy picture, it was the best I could find. And it indeed used to be the Bay of Bothnia (Bottany Bay?) but it is Sea of Aland now :)

Correct, back to Finland ... I guess the rest of the "usual suspects" must be on vacation and have better weather (here it's been pissin' most of the time).

Either they are vacationing at the coast of the Adriatic Sea, or their computers have melted away. No risk of that up here in the north, this so called "summer" might as well end, and the hunting season begin. :)
