Okay, so here is the first installment of my video-and-blog endeavor. I think it’s coming out well, but I must warn you, you really have to like the MG34 or just want to know how a machine gun works to watch it. Or maybe you just think I’m pretty.
Anyway, in this installment I wanted to go over some features and some of the workings of the weapon. I tried to keep it entertaining, but we shall see on that.
The MG34 is a conglomeration of several weapons all rolled into one. The end result is the world’s first successful GPMG or General Purpose Machine Gun. This basically means it can fulfill multiple roles on the battlefield. It did this very well. The only real drawbacks to the MG34 were that it was very expensive to produce, and it was a really finicky gun.
Of course that doesn’t make me love it any less. In fact, it’s the opposite: I truly love this weapon. The workmanship, the attention to detail, and the approximately eleven thousand—there may not be that many—parts all working together just make this gun for me.
Anyway, here is the first video installment. In future Vlogs, I guess we can call them that, there will be more in the writing area as well, but for now I present you the MG34.
