Re: There's a reason why it was called Hitler's saw

Now that is how they should cut trees down on "Axe Men" on the so-called History Channel.

Re: Time for Change.

Salt6/Steve your initiative to create this website engendered countless builds and saved many builders from dangerous/deadly mishaps while guiding them along their journey to reanimating historical semi-autos, one kit at a time. The tome of knowledge on this site is like no other on the Internet. Fu...

Re: Hammer follow

Just a quick note on the headspace, you would be surprised how many barrels/bolts match up just fine and how many do not, once put to the gauges.

What is the diameter of the exit hole on your booster?

Re: Approval letter

If you have a new design, then you must contact the ATF Tech Branch at Needy Road and make sure you have the credentials before you submit the design. In most jurisdictions a civilian can legally build a rifle (that includes semi-autos assuming no laws are violated i.e. SBR regs) however if your des...

Re: WWII MG42 on vehicle use

Great thread, great pictures, too bad more of these artifacts were not saved. For instance over 12,000 B17s were produced during WW2, yes many were shot down/damaged, however each state capital should have been given a compliment of US planes and captured Axis equipment for museums.

Re: Found: 1909 MG08 Spandau and a 1916 sled mount

That is a fantastic 08 "CaptMax" :wnana: Be sure to talk with Dennis about the process, he has not worked out all the bugs with the semiauto 08's/Type 24's YET, but he is very close. Last I knew he was still trying to get the best design for the trigger bar replacement since the 1910 botto...

Re: Spade Grips for the MG42 (not M53)

Jbaum your friend may want to consider trying a licensing deal (making an m53 prototype) with WLA or BRP Guns for the thousands of potential customers living in Blue State Hell (aka those living under retarded "assault weapon bans" in the Northeast). It may not make him rich, but could bri...

Re: Want to refinish my MG42. Options?

Certainly park, or duracoat are strong, but given that it is a C&R, if it were myself, I would take the time to consider the hotblue process, or at the very least, if you have the time and patience, consider doing a rust blue (not toxic, MUCH nicer than any cold blue, and you can do it yourself).

Re: Buffer cam pieces, clean up or buy new?

First congrats on your journey to rebuilding the iconic Mg42/M53. Second w/o pictures to see how badly yours are damaged it is hard to tell what you are up against; Though the vast majority of de-milled M53kits now just give you the buffer tabs attached to a small piece of receiver, then you merely ...

Re: Wiselite back in business under new ownership

For the many guys that possess neither the requisite Tig skills nor have access to a trusted FFL to weld up a receiver parts kit, BRP halves, etc., the WLA remains the only option, warts and all. Thus Jbaum it was nice to post the update. But they really should have went with a wood buttstock, the M...

Re: didnt likem till i turned 50 now there the coolest

You didn't like Russians or Maxims? :lol:

Seriously the only delay in liking the Maxim these days is being liquid enough to put one together, though it is getting like that for all the beltfeds, except the Mg42/M53.

Very nice Maxim. :D
