Deko Chauchat / Fusil Mitrailleur Modèle 1915, french Mg from WWI. Absolute rare pc of history.
Condition and details please see pics. It is demilled according old german specs (KWKG) - barrel is drilled six times, bullet chamber is welded, steel pin is set into first 1/3 of barrel. The backside bolt is missing, see pics - but you can still put it up mounted for display reasons. Would be a perfect future for this Chauchat if it serves in a museum.
One of a kind chance if you an WWI collector. This MG is mega rare. Proof of age 18+ years required.
