Re: i am thinking about making a 7.62x54r m53

Re: MG34 Semi auto bolt jamming

When MG34 new Ejector-Pins (part of the Bolt-Assembly) are fitted to a Bolt-Head, they are sometimes required to be trimmed on the end of the pin that makes contact with the Ejector-Plate. This is done due to excess material dragging inside the receiver when a cartridge is mounted in the Bolt-Face.....

Re: WTB: New old stock MG34 bolt

I would guess what you are looking for is an "un-numbered" "Armorers" Bolt-Assembly (?).....as would be found in one of the MG34 Parts-Can (?).

What would one be worth now if one could be found (?).
