DT15 Double Drum Magazine

Posted in Magazines with tags , , , on August 19, 2022 by The Dude

Here’s an interesting magazine for a weapon I don’t have. This DT15 was intended to be used on the MG15. The MG15 was designed to be used as an onboard gun on Luftwaffe aircraft. This magazine is visually similar to the PT34 saddle drum but cannot fit on an MG34. When the supply of MG15’s led to their employment as a ground gun the DT15 followed into ground use. These were expensive to make and almost all of the examples you see are pre-war manufacture as this Star made model is.
