The Parabellum MG14 was a 7.92x57mm caliber machine gun built by Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken. Around three versions survive till today, a water cooled, an air cooled, and a 14/17 version with a 3x telescopic sight.
The Parabellum MG14 was a complete redesign of the Maschinengewehr 08 machine gun system intended for use on aircraft and zeppelins that used a toggle action that broke upwards rather than downwards opposite the MG 08, making for a much more compact receiver. The fusee spring was dispensed with for an internal spring design, the breech block was completely different and the shells dropped out the bottom of the receiver rather than a hole in front of the receiver. There appears to be no action or receiver parts compatable with the MG 08. The MG08's belt feed was enclosed in a drum, the recoil casing was lightened, and used a modified water jacket for air cooling. The rate of fire was 700rpm. The belt was reduced to 30mm in width.
