Quick Overview

Original German MG3 Ground Tripod For Sale.  This tripod is an excellent example of German engineering at its finest.  The legs swivel to collapse the tripod into a small package that is capable of being worn like a back pack.  Contained within the tripod is an optics scope and battery box.  Once you mount your MG3 or clone like the MG42 or Yugo M53, you can see your target using the periscope style optic while firing with the trigger lever.

These are the very last of the MG3 Ground Tripod stores from Germany.  If you think you might ever need one, now is the time to buy!   We have been told by multiple European based suppliers that we have the last to be surplused by Germany.

We have dropped the price of this ground tripod from $399 down to $215.00 because the ones we have left are rusty and they don't have batteries. The tripod is still totally functional but there will be surface rust. You can treat it as a restoration project to paint it over. We only have 2 left.  No Return on this surplus item.

Many talented people have made adapters for this MG-3 Tripod to allow it to be used with guns like the 1919A4 and M60.  This tripod is perhaps one of the finest engineered machine gun mounts ever fielded by an army.

  1. Great Tripod In Excellent Condition review by Jack on 5/2/2011

    Bought this tripod a month ago, after buying the Keep Shooting MG42/MG3 AA tripod.

    The AA tripod was in excellent condition. So, I went for the MG42/.MG3 Ground Tripod.

    This Ground Tripod is an amazing piece of engineering. The tripod is in excellent condition. Every part opened and operated without any resistance, right out of the box, Later, I just squirted a little WD40 here and there to ensure further smooth operation.

    The optical sight is clear as bell. The battery box for the night operations lights looks unused. Put in four (4) D batteries and the bulbs light right up. Several spare bulbs came with the battery box.

    If you are considering a purchase of a MG43/MG3 ground tripod go for this Keep Shooting's offering. Everything I have purchased from this company has been top quality.

  2. Very nice tripod review by Marcus on 3/24/2011

    I purchased one of these with some Yugo belts. Its quite nice. It took me awhile to figure out all the bells and whistles. If someone asked for an example of German over-engineering, I would show them this tripod.

    The optics that came with it were crystal clear. Was expecting them to have some signs of use, but looked like they were never even mounted.
