Re: WTB MG42 Barrel 7.62 X 51

Seeking new and chromed barrels designed for 7.62 NATO. Thanks Since APEX already has the MG42/M53 barrels manufactured in 8MM I am planning on having a run of 100 barrels done in 7.62X51 NATO, these will also be chrome lined and blued. BUT, expect to have a wait! My usual delivery time runs about ...

Re: Replacement booster cones

The board member who might be manufacturing the boosters - TactAdv - plans to offer one size that can be drilled out to the desired size. His plans are for a 10mm orifice.

So charge up the batteries on your Makita and make sure you've got some good drill bits ;)

Re: Replacement booster cones

OK, sounds good!

If the price winds up in the $15-18 range I will indeed take 8 MG42 boosters...each with a 10mm hole ;)

LOL - Ok, I get the 'SWAG' thing now. I still don't get your pricing though. I had a molar yanked out today & I just popped two more pain killers, so maybe it's me, but this phrase doesn't make sense: "I will probably need of each type for those prices..." Are there some words missing ...

Any early rough order of magnatiude cost you see on a set of 4 cones? SWAG?....$15.00-18.00 each, w/Q20 ordered total.....+/-.....alloy steel, parked. CrO2 would add a few bux. -TomH TomH, does that mean that if you get orders for at least 20 sets (4 boosters to a set), that you will sell each boos...

Lima - you still out there? Please check your PM's.

Also, could you tell us how this grip has been working for you?

Can you tell us about the bolt and bolt carrier mods you made?

Re: SALE 1 only Panzerscreck RPzB 54

DD's are a nogo in my neck of the woods :(

I suppose I'll wind up with a de-mil eventually...unless someone comes up with a nice repro.

Aren't they classed as a destructive device? Or is it the rocket itself that is a DD?

Re: Trivia! What is this Flash Hider and why is it special?

bleh ... it wasn't me. I have one of Fab's repro flash hiders, but I am still looking for a nice soaking can. That blemish on the side of the lid turned me off - especially at more than 250 bucks... Ain't it funny how something as big and complicated as a really nice kit goes for $800~1000 and that ...

LOL - ok, what do you want to call it? An MG39? I'll find the pic, scan it & post it here. Cool? IIRC, the photo only shows the barrel jacket forward of the rear sight, so it may very well be an MG42... ;)

Re: Trivia! What is this Flash Hider and why is it special?

Just the other day I ran across a photo of an Waffen SS trooper. His MG42 is clearly fitted with one of these flash hiders.

About the auction ... dang - I want that soaking can!! The top is a little rough looking though. There are two accessories that I still need - a soaking can is one...

Re: SALE 1 only Panzerscreck RPzB 54

So, is anyone else hoping that IMA bought this thing so they could copy it? I have been searching for a repro 54 for a few years now. Everything I've run across has been kinda cheesy. It'd be great if IMA could put together good copies of this thing and then sell them for ~500 or so. I'd jump on tha...

OK, I understand drilling the holes in the case to help ID the dummy rounds, but a live primer? Will the holes in the case actually vent the pressure out? The round will be chambered - so how will that work? The chamber wall will keep the pressure in, forcing the bullet out of the case ... right? Wh...

As the details emerge the news just gets more & more saddening.

It's infuriating that the most this guy will face is about 20 years in prison.
