Re: WTS: 8mm Conversions for Nato Belt Loaders

I have a number of the sets avail straight out of the stamping die. These need to be trimmed which should take just a few mintes with a belt sander or metal cutting bandsaw. All parts are laser cut.

Re: PBB semi mg34 build

TNW has a patent on this paticular method of semi conversion and I in no way plan to cross any moral, ethical or legal line by offering their design for sale. All the parts shown here were machined for my own personal use. I believe a couple of other members here offers semi bolt and component servi...

Re: Weaponeer M53/MG42 Stick Grip

As for the 42 grip and bolt wise lite is using it looks kind of like the ones BRP make, as does the 34 conversion parts you are making look like the ones from TNW. Well since you brought it up the BRP grip is a welded up steel affair made from the original grip housing, alot more like the ones you ...

Re: Weaponeer M53/MG42 Stick Grip

sounds like a good plan, lots of folks would like to keep their original grip frame. I do have to ask looking back thru your old post why the AR fcg? I thought that was pissing up a rope ? :D

Re: PBB semi mg34 build

forgot to mention, I also placed a chunk of aluminum in the ejection port to keep the pieces of rec scrap aligned and avoid to much weld building up in that area also. Copper would be a much better choice of filler material for the eport and bolt channel but the alum seemed to hold up very well.

in addition to filling the area on the outside mentioned in the first post on this thread you also need, or at least sholud, weld up the inside of the rec floor to prevent the insertion of an unmodified FA bolt

Re: PBB semi mg34 build

here is the area on the outside of the reciever that must be filled to prevent the introduction of a FA sear into the receiver. Its very important that this area and the one pointed out above be filled with weld before the rec scrap is rejoined to insure that at no point you have been in possesion o...
