Re: Buffer cam pieces, clean up or buy new?

The overall length of the buffer tabs isn't critical, it's "the distance from the rear of the receiver to the foreward edge of the tab" that is important. Nobody want a floppy buffer/stock back there. You weld them in "a little deep" (too far foreward), then machine off metal a l...

http://www.gunbroker.com/item/580914131 Nice set, not mine. Most of these utilize a "clamp-on" foreward A/A sight holder. It was removable in order to slide the gun into the turret mount from the inside. The "aircooled" MG34 shroud uses a front A/A sight holder that pins on, and ...

Re: Mg34 makers code

Is the "s/n 573" on the shroud? I guess it could be a replacement part. I do have one that was buffed so thoroughly that the maker's code was purposely...yet artfully...eliminated, yet the s/n remains clear. Why? Does it look really old (1934-5)? Sometimes makers don't sign their work when...

Re: WTB: MG42 rear receiver section

My BRP receiver suffered from the same weakness. The radii are way too large on these sections, such that fitting all the components inside required taking too much out of the inside corners. I built up the outside with TIG welds, and it's minimally visible. You could utilize the RTG rear receiver s...

Re: Allegheny Arsenal

I have the same kit waiting to be built. I took it down the other day after moving three times and noticed a hole in the box. Some little stuff had wandered away. I thought about calling A-A, but I got the couple of missing items pretty cheaply from RTG Parts. Phil http://www.robertrtg.com/store/pc/...

Re: Introductions (or one way to increase your post count).

Welcome to the MG42 Fountain of Knowledge. It's all here! The Wiselite is a nice receiver. It's already factory built...and straight. The little extra length it has allows the bolt to travel further to soften the recoil. It does use some parts that are unique to it, different from the MG42-M53 kits....

Re: MG42 Barrel Dissassembly

"Kroil" works well for me.
Submergence in this stuff for a couple days, then the freezer, then the heat gun. Once the Kroil does its work, along with the temperature extremes, the parts will be as loose as they're ever gonna get.
Good luck!....Phil
