Re: M53 REceiver?

MG34.com had a German kit for sale at the Show of Shows. The front half of the receiver was uncut. It ended aft of the cam piece with a saw cut. I think it was $2,200.

Re: M53 REceiver?

The number 53 is on left side of the rearmost part of the receiver, so I'd say, well, hmmm, probably a 53.

Do what you're told to do, and this won't happen.

Re: Wisconsin man prosecuted for dealing firearms without license

With as easy and cheap as it is to get an FFL (compared to lawyer fees, court fees, and possible jail time/confiscation of your stuff), why would anyone be so stupid to do this, especially after being warned? If you want to improve your collection by trading/selling, and you're only interested in WW...

Re: WTB. Great condition original MG42 Tripod

Most people learn early on that anything from IMA is a crap shoot, and that paying for the "hand select" upgrade is dubious at best. I've bought nice stuff from there, and I've had a few items that were crap. It's just the way they are.

Re: WTB. Great condition original MG42 Tripod

Would it be correct to believe that what you want is actually a lafette, and not the tripod? They're two different things for the 42. The lafette is a ground mount that can have a telescope mounted on it, it has a searching fire device and mounts the gun securely in place. The tripod is like a big t...

Also bear in mind semi 42s are kind of a nightmare to get running correctly. Thats why most folks only work the FA ones.

Re: Please help me find a legit builder

The limiting factor is how many people are licensed to build the gun. Most builders are home do-it-yourself types. Building a gun for someone else, even if it's just building (welding together) the receiver, requires a license. Most people with the necessary skills don't have an FFL manufacturer's l...

I don't watch prices on mg42 semi stuff, or Yugo. I have too much other stuff to watch that I'm interested in buying. I was trying to get a cherry Browning Hi-Power 9mm from GB tonight. Just had to give it up when it got to $1,000 more than I wanted to pay. "Wanted", not "willing if I...

Re: Replacing Mg34 extractor.

It's a whole lot easier with the tool. If you watch ebay, you'll see one for sale sooner or later. They show up about every 2 years. Really... not a common tool to find.

Re: Mg42 recoil spring

With the rear sight flap flipped rearward, the spring should reach from the rear of the receiver to the sight flap.

Can't say about the length of a new spring.

Stay dry down there in Texas. :)
