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???
