Unloading a belt with the belt loading machine?

I know that belts can be unloaded with a gurtfuller, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Anyone done it?

Thanks,

Re: Ebay ammo drums and carrier

considering that the original German drums were blued, yea, they were painted. Were ALL of them blued? If I strip the original wartime dunkelgelb paint off of a couple of my drums, I'm going to find bluing underneath? I would suspect that at some point they stopped bluing them and started painting ...

Re: Ebay ammo drums and carrier

Anyone else think that they looked like they had been repainted?

Re: Things to remember when dealing with ATF-FTB

Have not seen the Facebook page, buy am assuming that the builder is trying to build a dummy gun?

Doesn't the BATFE have receiver specific requirements for rebuilding parts kits into dummy guns?

Re: Sarco "LAFETTE GROUND TRIPOD"

Just got mine, but have not done anything with it.

Paint is pretty dinged up, but everything is there, including the bolt box. Good deal

Re: M53 Help! Please!

Regarding your .308 question, mine is running .308 blanks just fine with only a barrel change and BFA. Keep an eye on the length of the spring in the bolt head. As it gets shorter, your bursts may get longer... BTW the Pakistani .308 blanks that Century is currently selling are jamming in my .308 ba...

The acetone worked...

Re: Got my kit today. The good, bad and the UGLY

Just got a complete barrel shroud from Sarco and they are ex-Israeli and parkerized, not blued. tim Given the paucity of '34 sets, except getting a lucky break some place, it sounds like you did okay. :D I agree with Michael, much of the cosmetic stuff can be dealt with, but I feel your pain about t...
