Re: Best Way to Sell Ammo

Good ideas from John....>> Maybe you should wait until the election is over:> ...If she wins, we are in trouble, and you'll be able to ask a lot higher price, because there will be such a panic, in the way of buying, that we have not seen yet. :cross:

Re: blank adapting the mg42/m53/mg1-3

Yah, Mike, ...as you know , I am a big one on cutting the recoil spring down, when setting the gun up for firing Blanks. ..........and I do this on both the 34 & 42, FA and when I had both in SA form. ...Folk in his big book on the 34 & 42, even mentions that the unit waffen-meister had to b...

Re: best oil/grease for maintaining mg's

I agree with John Baum, and go even further..>> For me, I prefer a wet gun, for even in re-enactments with blanks, we are usually in sterile or near sterile environments......Changing hot barrels & spraying oil on them to help them cool faster, plus using the two piece blank barrels, I lube the ...

Re: Shooting Romanian vs PPU "Sniper" ammunition

I don't worry about primers that are backed out a bit when shooting 308. It happens in mine sometimes, when I belt my handloaded 308 tracers in the 308 belts. (& I'm using regular rifle primers in the civilian cases) ...In the case above, a primer may pop out & subsequently gum-up the works ...

Re: blank adapting the mg42/m53/mg1-3

Zamex;....Don't cut away coils of your recoil spring, until you get one for the purpose of use with blanks. Once cut, it won't work piecing together. .........Right from the beginning, your trial of laying a blank on the feed-tray slot, & trying to fire/cycle it without the belt, and failing, is...

Re: blank adapting the mg42/m53/mg1-3

Place two blanks on feed tray & close lid; Charge & fire; First rd. fires then cycles onto the second rd;..If that works, you can eliminate belts as problem. (but still spread the ones with a death grip) ...........Get another recoil spring, & experiment with it.........(don't use the on...

Re: blank adapting the mg42/m53/mg1-3

I would ask, if it will feed & cycle/fire with just two blanks lying in the fed tray, not linked???......What do the blanks look like then?....If intact, then tight links may contribute to rough feeding. ......Yes, when you find some links that are extremely tight, widen them, I use a snap-ring ...

Re: blank adapting the mg42/m53/mg1-3

I may have missed it, but shortening the recoil spring may be the answer;>> It will allow the bolt to go to the rear well enough, so it will hit the buffer hard enough to eject the empty case, and will return foward with enough force to go into battery, etc...... .......In Folke's book, he recounts ...
