MKb-42(H) Assault Rifle with ZF-41 scope

The MKb-42(H), or Maschinenkarabiner-42 (Haenel), was the first production iteration of the German Sturmgewehr. It was chambered for the then-new 8x33mm kurz cartridge, and fired both semiauto and full-auto from an open bolt. Approximately 11,000 of these were made before production changed to the closed-bolt MP43. This particular MKb-42(H) is fully transferable, and up for auction at Rock Island Auctions on September 13th, 2014. Hammer price for this rifle was $130,000.
