Default MGRA Case Strap ?

Thought I would post here,

I have the above bit of kit and case, would anyone have details of the carry strap?

I.e. Length, width, type of buckles etc so I can focus in on what I am after. My presumption is similar to the RK31 Leather case however I don't want to guess.

Any advice is appreciated.

Regards

Tim

Sorry Tim but what is the MGRA? Perhaps you mean the MG.Z can and the R.A.35 can?

HI Carles,

MGRA = Indirect fire sight for MG08. Interwar it was issued as substitute standard along with the MG08 Optical sight to the MG34 crews until manufacture of the MGZ Optical sight managed to catch up to demand.

The MGZ and MGZ40 could fulfil both requirements. I will dig out a pic and post but it is covered in Volks books on the weapon.

Regards

Tim

Hello Tim,

I think I know which one it is. It's a pitty...because I've got the strap for the MGZ box but not for the MGRA
