Re: Charging Handle - Bolt Retraction

Something is not right.You should be able to open the bolt and unload without firing the weapon.
To tight, binding, something is not right.
Review the camming area for weld material, bends, rub marks, etc.Good Luck

Re: Weld first or lay out holes

Quick someone pass the Argon. As you know you need Argon to make good strong welds. Remember as they say small area then move to another small area. Don't try to weld up long stretches as distortion happens. Small areas work great.
Good Luck

Re: MG-3 kits ---What do you think ?

Well my thoughts were cut off the front end and then add a m53 front end. But what ever. For myself I have several 3 and 4 cut complete receivers that I need to work on someday.
