Normandy camouflage MG42 barrel carrier with Omaha Beach provenance
A rare all original MG42 barrel carrier that was once a part of the old museum in Surrain, Normandy. The Laufschützer 42 was a specific barrel carrier for the spare barrels of the MG42. The sling on the carrier is still originally attached and in full length, without repairs. The carrier was spray painted Normandy camouflage in green and brown on top of its factory tan colour.
It used to be on display in the old museum in Surrain just behind Omaha Beach where it was found. This barrel carrier has been used during those decisive days in June, 1944. A stunning centerpiece with provenance!
