Yeah ~there's pretty extensive work needed to build one of these guns. The rear section of the receiver is considered to be the firearm ~ each mfg seems to be a little different. Not only the rails need to be straight ~the correct overall length~the denial island~ect. Could you post some pics of wha...
Hey guys~looks like ravenna armory has some mg3 barrels back in stock. They are 1919 barrels that's been machined to mg3 specs~with barrel extension. Price is 275. seems as good as it gets right now. I think they also have 8mm barrels waffen
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 Waffen

Hey guys --- I'm sorry that I have not posted any info on this---I did buy a mg3 kit ---from RT and as stated the receiver was the biggest problem---it was smashed pretty good---I ordered the 350.00 kit and received the "extras"---1 barrel carrier,ammo can and 5 belts--no barrel--no bolt h...
Hey blackreichswehr---your right I should have known that :? ---its sad though--its almost like they DOUBLE destroy them---crushed in Europe and torched in the U.S.---I went ahead and bought a kit --- i'll keep everyone posted on the quality and the ability to rebuild into a semi auto---as stated ab...
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. waffen
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 ? waffen
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. just my .02 waffen
