Re: Help identifying vehicle mount

That is or was for a MG42 or M-3. As to what it was on I don't remember at this time. I have that mount in my garage. There is a picture of it in one of John's translated German books.

You could offer the same, Green Mountain made the barrels for them. I would talk ...

Re: My second build

I've never heard that much good about the cold steel receiver.

Do you think someone could finish a MG42 type build with one?

Glad to see that you were able to find some parts and get a MG42 together. Way to go!!!!
Any pics of the build or a range report yet?

Again Looks Great!
