Re: MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

I can close my gas valve all the way and it still has way too much power. I think the valve is either broke or just staying in the open position all the time.

Re: MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

I get about 2-3 reloads before the casing becomes questionable. For 7.62 x 51 ~ I use 4895 @ 44 grains. What's weird is that I reload 8mm and shoot it through a Hakim and it seems that it tears the rim off appx every 10th round ~not matter how far I open or close the gas valve ?.
Just my. 02

Re: MG-3 kits ---What do you think ?

Wow --- thanks for the heads up GB--- it looks like they did a number on the receiver---do you guys think the rece could be bent back into spec ?---and like you said ---it looks like the trunion is there and the recouperator is complete.---I'm still on the fence.

Re: MG-3 kits ---What do you think ?

I'm interested in how they "crushed the rece"----please let us know what the kit looks like when you receive it----- it also come with a heavy bolt carrier ? ?----will a standard m53/mg42 bolt head work on this carrier ?

Re: M53 ammo

Romy is the best surplus for the m53, for the price---just hard to find---like the others said---get a 308 conversion and get into reloading-because surplus ammo is getting harder to find,and commercial is getting costly.
