Post subject:  Basic MG42 gunner equipment

Hello, I'd like to know what is the basic MG gunner (MG42) equipment for Schütze 1 of a Waffen-SS soldier during late war (44-45)
I'm planning to do an airsoft impression. I already have the P38. :)

Thanks in advance.

depends on which role your wanting to portray in an Mg team, there were up to 5-6 men per team, and each carried different items.

Thanks. I mentioned Schütze 1, the guy with the MG itself. I'm currently planning to go with a tool pouch, a 8mm ammo belt and a P38. Seems like ordering a nice repro belt can be a problem and I don't know where to get one in Switzerland.

By repro belt, do you mean the leather waist belt...or the linked MG ammo belt?

I make leather belts.
I used to supply MG belts too, but not sure about mailing these outside the EU.
(For inert 8mm ammo ask at your local gun club)

I'm talking about the 8mm ammo belt, like zib sells them. They already told me that shipping to Switzerland is not possible (no reason, though), so I'm gonna order one to Germany and bring it to Switzerland by myself.

Currently it will be this sling, this pouch (damn, sold out) and the belt i'm talking about.

Thanks for the offer, but I got my belt from zib today. The only thing missing is the pouch.
