Re: Binary trigger??

If you mount your mg42/m53 on a mg3 lafette, all you do is bump the handle and it will eat up your belt of ammo real quick. Not as fast as the real thing but fast.

Search and you might find a number of threads where Glen has stepped in and got an MG42 working again.
Right now he is "playing" with a few tanks in Texas.

2 Different riveted pads info request

I'm posting pics of the backs of 2 different lafette pads. Both pads should be early, pre spot welding.
Of course the pad without the strong backing has folded. In reviewing the front etc. I believe that they are from war time and German.

Thoughts???

Re: MG34 Lafette Leather pads

My wife and I are talking about making a set of leather pads for some of my lafettes and we will see how it goes. We also talked about doing them for other folks, we will need to see how that works out.
There is/was at least one thread on this site on how to rebuild your leather pads.
