Re: FINALLY FINISHED A MG53

WOOPS!, Bil, your right. It was my wife, son and daughter that 'severly chastise' me for shouting, not you. It's hell to get old and forget the details.

Re: FINALLY FINISHED A MG53

All kidding aside, Bil, some of those rear receiver sections I bought from you, are incorporated in both MG53s.
THANKS, you have had a hand in getting these up and running. :D

Re: FINALLY FINISHED A MG53

Since I was severely chastised :swear: for shouting here by some un-named persons, I have made a real effort to not shout on other sites also, but sometimes it just slips out. I have poor texting eddicate (and spelling :oops: ).

Re: FINALLY FINISHED A MG53

I uses an air brush and compressed air to spray the Duracoat on after sand blasting. I mixed just enough of it at a time to fill the paint cup. Unfortuneatly I could not heat cure it because of the length of the receiver so I will have to let it sit for 2 weeks before I put the gun to hard use. I us...

FINALLY FINISHED A MG53

I finally got a duracot finish on the first of 2 MG53s I built. I think I will Parkerize the second one.

Re: BOTH MG53S SHOT

I used 10-23 socket head cap screws threaded into the rails and will use round head rivets to replace them.

BOTH MG53S SHOT

I finally got a chance to shoot both the MG53s I built. After a little lubercation and cycling issures they both shot and feed great. Now all that's left is to remove the temporary rail machine screws, rivet them in place sandblast and put on a finish. I think I will Park them. SUCCESS FINALLY BIL!,...

1ST TEST FIRING OF MY MG53

I finally got a chance to test fire my MG53. Had some surgery on both hand so I didn't have a chance to try it until now. It would fire and feed a new round but would not eject so the fired round stayed inside the receiver and prevented the bolt from locking up on the new round. With the top cover o...

Re: FINALLY GETTING TO START ON MY MG53

I got the AR-10 FCG from a guy on AR15.com. They are DPMS and he replaced them with a target FCG and didn't need them so I got them fairly cheap. About the same price a standard stock FCG for a AR15. The only thing I didn't get with them was the hammer and trigger pins.

Re: FINALLY GETTING TO START ON MY MG53

I got the second gripstick modified and AR10 FCG installed this evening. The trigger is the same as an AR15 but the hammer and hammer spring seem to be a little bit heavier. This should help with more reliable ignition with hard primers.

Re: FINALLY GETTING TO START ON MY MG53

Last night I got the bolt modified to Pirate's V2.0 method on the second gun. Hopefully I can get the second receiver welded together this weekend. It's all tacked together now. I need to make some buffer cam pieces and attach them to the rear. I don't have those 2 pieces yet.

Re: FINALLY GETTING TO START ON MY MG53

After I test fire it then I will rivet the rails on, plug weld the ratchet plate on, sand blast it and Parkurize it. For now, there are screws holding the rails and ratchet plate on. Now I have to weld up the receiver on the second one. Pirates bolt modification is the only way to go. I tried drilli...

Re: FINALLY GETTING TO START ON MY MG53

Here are some pictures of my gripstick mounting and safety. The small side plates were silver soldered on. They could actually be a little smaller. The gripstick was machined out just big enough for the hammer trunions to fit and the small knotches on the trigger boss were ground off so it would sli...
