Re: Mg42 on a mg3 tripod

Believe me set the trigger lever straight out towards you and slap it down fast and it will go thru a 50 rd belt so fast you will not think about crank fire unless you have lots of ammo. Been there done that with the slap of the trigger bar before.
Enjoy
Looking forward to the pics.

Re: 10 round belt.

Like the idea of keeping the belt length at 50 and doing the grind out so only 10 can be loaded in a row. Nice idea. Ok, question can you receive the belt and then grind it before anyone knows or ???? So happen to live in a state does not have those rules. And I/we don't have those problems. Later 4...

Sorry no thoughts on the rivet hitting problem. A pic might help out a lot here. Good Luck and let us know whats working post a pic and we ...

Re: 10 round belt.

And a starter tab holds 3 rounds. Do they count that in a possible belt of ten rounds?
I would hope not. Are you going to be shooting 8mm or 308?

Brian does not always have everything listed on the website.
