MG08 ?

It seems to me that the shape of the reciever doesn't really match MG08. Such large slope in the front side is unusual for any machine gun so I have no idea what it can be. Greg-Z (talk) 02:19, 6 December 2012 (EST)

From the shape of the top cover and the design and position of the charging handle, I would say that it is probably an MG42 which has been mocked up as a generic "early" water cooled machine gun. I think I can also see the rear of the hinged pannel on the right side of the heat shield (that you open to do a barrel change on the MG42) poking out of the rear of the cosmetic jacket. --commando552 (talk) 05:17, 6 December 2012 (EST) I agree, it is MG42, which imitates Perino Machine Gun, that can not practically get for movie in original.--Pandolfini (talk) 07:44, 6 December 2012 (EST)
If it's an MG42 imitating a Perino, then we call it an MG42. --Funkychinaman (talk) 08:24, 6 December 2012 (EST)
Also, why do you say it is a Perino, is there dialogue that backs this up? It looks no more like a Perino to me than any other early machine gun (less so in fact, as the Perino was strip fed rather than belt). If you are just saying it is a Perino based on the fact that it is italian, that is a bit of a reach, and also I'm fairly sure that Maxims were more common in the Italian army anyway. --commando552 (talk) 09:48, 6 December 2012 (EST) This is not the army, but the Carabinieri are. In the 20th Perino's was already considered obsolete and it is just this forces had received them. Similarity with MG42 is in the box for the main and its unmistakable shape. Magazine with cartridges attached to left side of a gun (in original photo) in the film lies on the ground.--Pandolfini (talk) 10:34, 6 December 2012 (EST)
