    Best Machine gun of WWII?

    Decided to post a new poll, since the last poll didn't have all the choices that people desired. So I posted 3 new polls. One on best Pistols, best infantry rifles, and best machine guns.
    This one is for the best machine gun. Only one choice per person on all of these polls!

    Hard to sellect just one. I picked MG42, but that is only if I have two ammo bearers. MKII Bren if I only have one,

              Again, No suprises here! The MG42 was state of the art! Its' design, action, construction, and barrel changing method was superior. It's fire rare is legendary (not to mention frightening! )

              It was so well respected that the US Army even developed a training film for the troops to watch to help them deal with the phsycological fear of the weapon in combat! I've never heard of any other firearm recieving this attention!?

              The fact that it is still seen in front line service by many militaries is a testement to its' success.

                MG42 is indeed an enduring design. Post war models (MG3 on) in 7.62mm NATO, are, in my humble opinion, the best general purpose machine gun available. SO MUCH superior to our miserable M-60(any weapon with a design flaw so bad as to require the gas system to be wired in place by a trained armorer to keep it from self destruction, is pretty miserable)
                The various modifications and adapters developed by Reinmetal( including cyclic rate reduction) continue to keep this lengendary baby(MG42)first class.
                Just my humble,

                Johnnie

                        M-2

                        Browning M-2, developed around 1928 and still in service today. Used on aircraft, boats, anti-aircraft, armor and all types of other vehicles.

                            In the quality management perspective, the MG 34 was the best. I voted for the MG42 for several reasons...

                            1. The rate of production.
                            2. The rate of fire.
                            3. The physchological effect of this weapon on the enemy.

                              I have to go for the Mg-42 as well. Ability to rapidly service multiple targets is a plus over slower cyclic rate Mg's such as Bren's etc.
                              Mind you it requires a good supply of ammo.
