Re: MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

My gun runs in 8mm and .308 with the same nozzle. I swap barrels, top covers and feed trays, and it's ready to run. You're having trouble running .308 reloads in the MG42 because they don't have sufficient powder to make the gun operate. With almost the right load, you'll make the gun operate consis...

Re: MG42 Bolt locking

There are curved cam surfaces on the cam piece that stick inside the bolt path. When the bolt is pulled rearward, the cams push in the rollers and allow the bolt to release from the barrel extension. If the bolt won't unlock (pull back) easily even with the bolt catch inside the bolt extension, it's...

B24 Movie

Yes, it's on Youtube.com and is only 7 minutes long, but it's a great short video about building the B24.

Re: Phosphate finished bolt

It is a very early bolt, before they started hard=chroming them. Like any bolt from WWII, I recommend not shooting with it, as its wartime quality is not known, and old steel that has been stressed will crystalize and then shatter under more stress. M53 or MG3 bolts are fine, but with wartime shorta...

Re: WTB: MP44 barrel

5 holes the diameter of the bore is the standard European demil. It sucks when you see that someone has screwed up a perfectly good barrel and you need one. :(

Re: Mg42 canvas sling

Folke did a lot of research before writing the book. Talk to him at Knob Creek and ask how he determined the originality of the cloth slings. I'm certain he has a reason for his opinion, and the story should be interesting.

Re: Is my semi MG42 supposed to be making this noise?

I'd check the front barrel bushing for sticking. The recuperator should slap the barrel forward, as it has to immediately after the bolt head releases. But, if the barrel is sticking somewhat, the recuperator is pushing until it overcomes the sticking and then the barrel slaps fully forward after a ...

Re: Damage to casing neck after shooting?

High speed photography would solve this question immediately. Try putting a rubber pad (piece of radiator hose or similar) on the front of the trigger guard to see if the brass is twirling into it upon ejection.

Re: MG42 vs M53 ROF

Bil, the bolt I got from you was an MG3 bolt with the spring loaded feed pin, but it was the same weight as the standard WWII bolts. I've seen 3 bolt weights, but I've never seen a buffer made to take the pounding from the heavier bolts. Without that, using a heavier than standard bolt is just askin...

Re: Semi automatic and full automatic in one receiver?

A trigger pack AND a full auto style bolt can enable an H & K semi receiver to fire full auto. The term "registered" needs to be defined. You're using it to include "research" parts made by an SOT, while most people use it as meaning that it is a transferable item, that is, a...

Re: Semi automatic and full automatic in one receiver?

Salt6 lives! Welcome home, friend.

Conversely to the above possibility, it could have been a registered machine gun, and the guy made a semi auto kit that works in the MG receiver. It's perfectly legal to do that, just not the other way around.
