It looks like your ring is from a post war OT-810, Germany didn't have APC gun turrets. Also is your belt fed a MG53? or a MG42? If it is a true MG53 Yugo kit, your bolt will fire .308 and 8mm, the post war bolts are heavier, to slow the cyclic rate down, the only thing really that you need to do is change the booster cone, barrel to .308 and get a .308 top cover, I like the H&K drum mags and the newer top cover plate that uses either disentegrating links or German/Czech non-disentegrating links (these are great, because you can reload them and reuse them). If you have any questions on need any info on parts I was a manufacturer for over 10 years on these and other full auto's and semi's, if you get a 8mm barrel and use the non-disentegrating links, it is a whole lot cheaper then firing .308, you can get Turkish and other 8mm and shoot like a mad man...

When I was in Astan and Iraq, I saw a similar mount on Mercedes G Wagons. So yours might be an early version of a German/Czech post war APC or vehicle mount, let me know how it goes, you can always, do an external roll-cage frame and make it part of it on your series or do it under the hard top.

Couple of G rides.

Wow thats really cool. I don't know what the ring is from, but I know it has German metal tags with writing on it. I will go home and take pics of whats written on it. I'm pretty sure its an Yugo MG42 kit. My gunsmith is upgraded the barrel to a new US made barrel that can accept .308 that use disentegrating M-60 links or belted. We were trying to stay away from 8mm ammo.

The MG42 was German manufactured, the Yugo is known as the MG53 (which is a German MG42, but with Yugo markings (and sometimes with a different bolt) There are other variants like the MG3 and MG74, which are almost identical. Any of the post war barrels fire the .308, so you don't really need the US made barrel, unless you are using a few US made components to make it US compliant.

I loved shooting my full-auto MG42, it ripped ammo like you wouldn't believe, hence the 8mm because it is hellla lot cheaper.. I would be interested to see your set up when you are done. If you didn't want to use your hard top, you could always try and do a series hybrid WMIK. That would be different!!

Looks like somebody in Detroit has a toy as well.

A man driving an armor-plated military-type vehicle and firing what appeared to be a machine gun mounted on top caused a ripple of panic in suburban Detroit on the Fourth of July.
It turned out the weapon was a modified World War II .50-caliber machine gun that had been converted to fire compressed gas. It produced bright flashes and loud gunfire sounds as the driver, a man in his 40s, drove around Shelby Township.
Recordings of a series of 911 calls capture the fear of residents whose reports of the imposing sight sent officers swarming late Thursday. In one call, bangs similar to the sound of gunshots can be heard.
Police say they arrested the driver, identified as John Lind, and confiscated his vehicle. He was released the next day but was not charged.
Lind is a veteran and the founder and director of Detroit Arsenal for Democracy, a museum specializing in World War II military vehicles.

Reminds me of the time a friend drove his Pinkie to work where it was going on display.

I wonder how it will go in VT when the Shorland shows up latter this month. I used to get some funny looks driving the lightweight Recce with dual GPMG's and rifles hanging everywhere.

Neil, If you have to many projects and want to let this one move one state east please let me know. I can say with 100% certainty that I can give it a very good home.
