Re: More Dumb MG42 7.62 Headspace Questions

Well, to answer your test result question. The test using one bolt head with and without the extractor got the same headspace results. No bolt lock up on the No Go Gage for all four barrels. Barrels number 1 and 2 would not lock up with the go gage. Barrels number 3 and 4 were a go with the go gage...

Re: More Dumb MG42 7.62 Headspace Questions

Armed with my new Forster 7.62 Go No Go gave, I tested my 4 barrels with my 5 bolts.


no wonder why I can't find any 7.62 barrels. People are buying up to 4 barrels for their MG. So what are the results of your test?

Re: Make my own headspace gage?

Can I make my own Go, No Go Gages for matching up my MG42/3 Bolt heads and 7.62 Barrels? ? Yes. You can just use one live round and lock it by hand, with light push of a finger, rollers should lock. JBaum will tell you it is a rocket science but its really easy to check if you understand the techni...

Re: Bolt stuck

It's hard to see from the pictures, but the ejector bar seems to be in the correct position. Any ideas what went wrong? Even if it turns out I'll have to send it to someone more capable at this than me, I would like to know what not to do in the future. You have to get it out first then inspect the...

This is a good thread with working pictures, you pretty much need to do this

In my opinion these rear receiver only builds are a mess. You got to have some serious tools and skills.

Re: Bolt stuck

OP probably figured it out by now and is not posting the cause of the lock. Very typical for new members here, they come with a problem, we all gather to help them out and they never post again.

Re: TNW SA MG34 Failure to feed

The OP is clueless on how the TNW SA MG34 loads up initially. TNW only provided printed version of their user manual, I assume OP did not get that when he bought his second hand TNW MG34 "semi-auto" charging sequence: *Lock the bolt back. I use a plastic spacer in the ejection port to hold...

Re: Bolt stuck

Heya Whilst messing about my MG, the bolt got stuck in the camming piece, and it won't disengage. I've tried pushing down the muzzle many times to no avail (goes down for only a few centimeters at most). Any help would be appreciated. Do you even know what few centimeters mean? Bolt rollers 'must' ...

Re: MG42/M53 canvas action cover mystery

When the gun is being transported or stored action covers help prevent snow rain and dust from entering the action...same as muzzle caps. But rain will soak the canvas, also snow will melt and soak the canvas wet and you don't want wet fabric against metal. In Yugo service manual it says that durin...

MG42/M53 canvas action cover mystery

I did use search and can't find a thread on real purpose of action cover for the MG? Yugoslav M53 manual shows the picture of it but does not say what the real reason for use is. But it details what everything in the gunner's pouch does. It wraps around the rear section, and it supposed to prevent w...

Update, cause was old over-pressured Yugo 50s ammunition. With new chrome line barrel it took more pressure to get the projectile trough so pressure was increased, this resulted in over-pressuring the brass case and case getting sticky in the seat when the seat got hot and would result in fail to ej...
