Re: M53 bushing replacement

To give you more information to add to your statement about those parts.........I need to ask if you had a question (?). Otherwise........I would have to ask for a clear photo of those parts that you are talking about, laid out together to see what is going on. I can make guesses........but that wou...

Re: Überschießtafel for the Lafette 34 & 42

bergflak, Great information as always........and in great detail. Now all we need is to locate a good/reliable source for identical replicas (and the different rivets/aluminum and steel types) of the different models for our Lafettes that are missing their plates.......

Re: Way fast firing MG42

flemgunner, I would think that the longer Barrel-Bearing (being longer) would hold the pressure inside the Booster-cup/"Nozzle" slightly longer as it moves to the rear attached to the front of the barrel.......and not allowing the excess gas-pressure to escape out the vents in Flash-Hider ...

Yep......the only other item that Global-Machine could do to make these receiver-halves look more like the originals would be to make the "rail-rivet-indentations" on both sides.....and as they appear on the cut/DEMILed MG42 receiver in their photos from Global-Machine's Auctions (shown ab...

Posting a few photos of the Global-Machine receiver-halves so you can see how far they will extend.......let us know if you believe that they are long enough for what you need.

Breakout703, Trayce1911s old ad of about a year ago showed a set of receiver halves from Global of that time period (or earlier). I have posted four (4) of Global-Machine's receiver-halves photos from their GunBrokerAuction......and they appear a little different. Now I have no connection with Globa...

Re: Converting Lafette42 trigger for Lafette 34

The "Block" that the trigger rotates on to install the weapon into the platform, should be in about the same location on the upper platform for both the MG34 and MG42.........so, if you start with a "U" shaped block that you can mount the sheet-metal-trigger on with a pin.......a...

Re: MG34 Training Rounds

czerka, As your MG34 was set up for, and fires 7.62x51mm ammo well, what I am seeing in the photos could possibly be one of a few issues: 1: Almost looks like not enough recoil of the bolt-assembly to get the bolt-head behind the cartridge-base. What do the deformed cartridges look like on the front...
