TNW MG-34 .30-06

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Unquestionably one of the more imposing firearms we've tested, the magnificent TNW-made German MG-34 got our undivided attention both on and off the range. The gun broke down easily, being held together by spring-loaded, precisely made detents. For sporting fun, it's just great.

That rear sight was snug as the day the gun was made, back in 1939. Just below it is the takedown button for removing the main action from the barrel shroud. Just above the trigger is the spring-loaded safety. The gun originally fired from an open bolt. This semiauto version fires from a closed bolt.
The double cutout in the trigger originally permitted single rounds when pressed high, and full-auto fire when pressed low.
The front "barleycorn" sight is in a dovetail for fine-tuning windage. In front of the sight is a spring-loaded detent for removing the flash hider. The bipod comes off in a split second, and can be relocated to the rear of the barrel.
