The MG 34 (Maschinengewehr 34) is a German recoil-reloading and air-cooled machine gun, introduced in 1934. It is considered the world's first general-purpose machine gun (light, bipod-equipped and heavy, tripod-equipped). It is capable of sustaining a high volume of fire, without sacrificing movement speed, or tactical flexibility. It was in service from 1936 to 1956.
The MG 34’s unique trigger acted as a fire selector switch. If pulled near the top, the MG fired single shots, whereas fully automatic fire was possible by pulling the trigger from the bottom. Later production MG 34s had an astounding rate of fire—some as high at 1,700 rounds per minute. This awesome rate of fire earned the MG 34 platform the designation “Hitler’s Buzzsaw” due to the gun’s loud, saw-like sound.
