Ladies and gentlemen I want to start of by saying this was almost a year in the making and we are extremely excited to introduce the MG-42/59 Parts kit available for purchase. What is a MG-42/59? Well in simplicity it is a MG-42 made in Italy by WHITEHEAD MOTO FIDES (W.M.F) A company with a long history in torpedo manufacturing and other war materials from before the year 1899. During the 2nd world war it supplied axis powers war materials and post war was contracted by Rheinmetall to produce the MG-42 and it continued to do so until 1970. These examples from WMF are extremely well made.
Firing the 7.62x51mm NATO round at around 800-900 RPM the MG-42/59 managed to lower its rate of fire by its “Heavy Bolt” weighing in at over 42oz combined with a stiff spring and a matching buffer. A configuration suited for modern military needs, the MG-42/59 is a standout in the 80 year Legacy of the MG-42.
These MG-42/59 kits are the finest in availability, past present and future with countless hours invested in demilling the weapons by an expert team from halfway around the world. Disassembled down to the receiver, even the rivets holding the inner rails were removed to ultimately avoid unnecessary destruction when torch cutting the receiver per ATF specs. Speaking of rails, you will find absolutely zero witness marks because as the title says, these are N.O.S and never used.
Have you seen the picture with the rollmarks? E.I stands for Esercito Italiano ( Italian Army) and the FAT69 is an inspection stamp. ALL OF OUR KITS ARE 1968 DATED
It gets even better! Your destroyed weapon was made in 1968 and your pair of MATCHING 30 cal ammo cans are also 1968 date coded and N.O.S !!!! Amazing isn't it? Well not really when you consider that if you buy 2 of the kits WE WILL GIVE YOU KITS WITH CONSECUTIVE SERIAL NUMBERS.
That's right, 8 "pairs" out of 30 kits total.
We also have 1 trio available and can be found in the "collectors Kits" section.
Finally we would like to point out the MG-42/59 has seen extensive service all over the world in countless NATO operations, Anti-Terrorism units of the italian military and a new chapter in the war in Ukraine as shown. The popularity and respect for these weapons by the U.A can be seen in photos/media and It has quickly become a symbol of NATO fighting power. These are not replaceable, ALL available units from Italy were sold to Ukraine. We have elected to show photos of the weapons in current use to highlight that there will be no 2nd opportunity to purchase these. It's as good as it gets.
