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.

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.

Re: 42/53 Parts Kit

pits right ---everything firearm related is going up, and i think it will for a while
the zb kits are a good deal imo,the barrel is the problem,a live barrel can fetch 3-4 hundred and that was before the buying flurry,I was told that Centerfire has very few of the zb kits left.

Re: Centerfire Yugo M53 kit

Welcome---42Rocker is right,the rear receiver is getting costly and hard to find, and parts from a complete receiver makes for an eaiser build.
