Hello,
I recently bought a rifle case off of a major auction site.
Reputable seller, claimed it was factory, I I have no way to confirm, but no reason to doubt.
Anyway, I like it!

I think I have have been able to determine what is supposed to go where, but I am not 100%,

Specifically what goes in the giant circle in the lower left?

So far I have:
Rifle
Bipod
2x 5rd mags
2x 20rd mags
Pull thru cleaning kit
PSG1 scope cleaning kit
Correct mount w. Cheap scope

Any input greatly appreciated.

I also am currently looking for a correct MSG90 sling and correct ZF 10x42 Hensoldt, if you have such beasts, please PM me and let me know how may organs I need to sell. 馃檪

Thanks 20200504_183024_1588646942274.jpg 20200504_183644_1588646969016.jpg 20200504_183710_1588646996699.jpg 20200504_183730_1588647048061.jpg 20200504_183806_1588647124970.jpg 20200504_183747_1588648360573.jpg

Yup! Almost there. Just need the correct sling, and maybe a G8 drum to go in that giant hole 馃檪

That's what I'm trying to figure out, the only accessory I don't have is the sling.
But that cut out is big enough for a tow strap! ��
Here is a pic of the sling. Aside from the metal fitting for the forearm the leather shoulder piece probably has something to do with the size of the
area in the case for the sling.

Thanks HkCHUCK, you wouldn't want to part with that sling by chance? You know, for scientific purposes.

I like the sling idea but maybe the circle cutout has multiple purposes. When I first saw it, I thought it looked about the size required for the nylon pull through cleaning rod that shipped with many PSG1s. I don鈥檛 recall seeing one for sale in quite a while but it is similar to this well used one:

One can also be seen in the photos of a current GB auction:

The nylon rod doesn鈥檛 fit in an original PSG1 case very well but many PSG1s came with one. I could see the MSG90 having one as well.

Might be further clues on accessory equipment in the MSG90 maintenance manual. At least one of the various PSG1 manuals references the nylon rod.

Thanks,
That's a good idea, I do have the maintenance manual somewhere, I will look and see if it is mentioned.

MSG90 Maintenance Instructions
Page 32, Item #8.
Description: Cleaning rod (pull-through)
Ident. No: 327894
Remarks: 鈥淒elivery with each weapon鈥

The remark in the final column makes me think each MSG90 did generally ship with one.

For filling out the case, if it fits, I think the sling is likely the best purpose for that cutout. The cleaning rod has a mind of its own. Unless coiled and put away safely it can get bent and take memory easily. A lot of them that were stored in PSG1 cases have bends. Even if the MSG90 likely came with one, it鈥檚 not an accessory I鈥檇 chase down unless you鈥檙e going for completeness.
