Re: WaA Stamped belts

I have lots of belts that only have a three letter code and no other stamps. I have a couple that only have a small WaA mark with nothing else. The rest all have dates and codes. Anybody know if late war belts are completely unmarked? - matt

The cartridge lever in the top cover is stiff but can be depressed with finger pressure. Something else to look at is the top edge of that lever on the bolt. If it is roun...

Re: fail to feed mg34

The little lever on the top of the bolt is probably worn out or its spring is weak. Also check the rear cartridgel lever in the feedblock and its spring.
