Re: MG blew up in my face! Need help

hakentt, I am not attacking you on this-- you are closing your eyes to the advice and answers to your question, your looking for a simple measurement? it's like your asking how to wind a watch with a pair of pliers.

Re: Help with Build

sorry, my former post, wasn't helpful. get yourself some layout blue and a metal scribe. make your cuts on the inside of the line, use squares for all your layouts. did you measure each side of the receiver shells? one side or the other, maybe both-- may need some milling, be advised of your O.D.

Re: What size rivets for charging handle? PS- YOU MISS ME!??

it's been a few years past, but I recall getting some rivets from John Deere, the sickle bar for a combine used this same size. Or maybe International, can't really recall which.

Re: Hammer follow

headspace has nothing to do with hammer follow. as with any firearm before firing one round, this must be checked, your not making a toy. think about it, its your face, possible even your life, this will have to be your call. I have witnessed an out of battery explosion, it wasn't pretty--the fellow...

Re: Hammer follow

check and see if the hammer tail is bottoming out, that can cause hammer follow or not resetting. i'll follow you along and see if we can fix this. it's going to like a doctor telling you what's wrong on the telephone.
