Re: Mg34 Wartime Finish

Thanks for the reply. I know dot switched to phosphate on some small parts on k98 assembly but, unlike most other makers, did not fully switch over.

Mg34 Wartime Finish

Hey guys- I have a question regarding finish on late mg34’s. For example a dot 1945 that by serial number is early enough to have been produced wartime and shows no post war markings but is phosphate. Did dot (or any makers for that matter) switch to phosphate on mg34’s during the war or is that a s...

Semi Build Help

Hi All- To make a long story short i sent my 42 kit off to a friend roughly 5 years ago to build into a semi for me. I just got it back today still not finished, which sucks. Part of the issue was a large torch cut to the right rear of the gun which kept causing warping. I plan to replace the rear h...

WTB: MG42 rear receiver section

Almost done with my semi build but the cut in the rear receiver section has weakened the area too severely. Any one have a back section (or back right) section for sale? Please email me at bigdibbs88@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Re: "dot 1940"

Thanks, it's mine. I thought it might stir up a bit more discussion seeing as their very existence is disputed. Seems to be no interest, maybe I'll post more pictures if there is

Re: "dot 1940"

I'm a lowly k98 collector, but this certainly looks legit to me. Would anyone dispute?

"dot 1940"

Hi All- I recently found an mg34 barrel shroud marked "dot 1940". It has a low 3 digit serial number with no suffix. I didnt realize that dot was even making 34's that early. Is this piece uncommon or am i just thinking wishfully? Does anyone know about how many they made in 1940? Thanks!

MG42 Catastrophic failures

Hi Guys- I have a buddy building me a semi MG42 at the moment. He is pretty experienced with building them, I'd say hes built 20+ if I had to guess. We got on the topic of shooting it, and he says i should shoot it as little as possible as he's never had a semi go for more than ~400 rounds without s...

Wts: matching MP40 kit with full tube

I have a matching bnz41 mp40 kit. It is deactivated by a single saw cut under the rear mag tube band and the cocking piece also being removable from the bolt. The entire tube is present, but the rear sight needs to be tacked on. You cannot upgrade this one without spending $12k+ on a matching live m...

Question on gustloff production

Hello-

I just had a few questions on 1944 gustloff production. What is the highest reported serial number? I have an MG made in the F block and I'm wondering roughly when in '44 it would have been made. Also, when was the "MG42" designation dropped?

Thanks for any help
