MG34 or MG42 Ammunition Box (Patronenkasten 34). The M34 ammo cases were originally developed for use with the MG34, and held up to three hundred rounds of the 7.92mm ammunition. The M34 and M41 cases were used through-out the war with minor construction variations and were adopted for use with the MG42 on its introduction. This case is a steel construction example showing a nice late war tan overpaint on top of the original fieldgrey paint. The case is showing some normal scratches caused by usage and is unfortunately missing its closure clip, see photos. The box is nicely maker marked and dated 'bsj 41' indicating production in 1941. Nice original ammo box in good used condition!
