This is a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a 100% INERT WW2 German Wehrmacht/Luftwaffe 20mm MGFF AP Round, as by various Aircraft and AA Mounts!
The MG FF was a drum-fed, 20 mm aircraft autocannon, developed in 1936 by Ikaria Werke Berlin of Germany. It was a derivative of the Swiss Oerlikon FF F cannon, itself a development of the German World War I Becker 20 mm cannon, and was designed to be used in fixed or flexible mountings, as both an offensive and a defensive weapon. It saw widespread use in those roles by the German Luftwaffe, particularly during the early stages of World War II, although from 1941 onwards it was gradually replaced by the Mauser firm’s 20 mm MG 151/20.
Made of solid steel and brass, this is a FANTASTIC piece of history! Completely inert, there are some slight wear and marks, however it remains VERY SOLID with various marking throughout. The case is stained/tarnished, but that could be easily cleaned up. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Please note that as I have a few of these in stock, the item you receive may look slightly different than the one depicted in the auction photos.
