Merkblatt 41/18 – Anleitung für die handhabung und Bedienung des M.G. 42 als leichtes und schweres Maschinengewehr – Instruction for the Handling and Operation of the M.G. 42 as a light and heavy Machinegun. The first edition of this manual was dated March 15, 1943. It was a good manual and did contain information that wasn’t found in any of the other manuals. This revised manual is very informative about the operation, use, and care of the M.G. 42, and the early pictures show the muzzle brake (not the later flash hider). The muzzle brake is not mentioned in the text, but is shown in the pictures of the gun. This also contains troubleshooting tables, while the overshooting tables are in the Appendices. Paperback, 8.5″h x 5.5″w, 56 pages. English translation of an original wartime manual. Please reference “Merkblatt 41/18” on your order.
