Re: i am thinking about making a 7.62x54r m53

........been a while on this subject (been moving State-so-State) so I thought I would check in to see if anyone has come up with additional photos and/or information on the Finish 7.62x54R conversion......or worked on their own project (?).

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.....

....remember to torque down the barrel into the barrel-extension and "stake" it at the notch in the Barrel-Extension forward face. If the barrel-extension does not have a "notch", then grind a small notch to stake the barrel to. I don't remember if it was early MG42 barrel-assemb...

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 (?).
