Re: Something Special we have been working on...

I would be interested. Can I send my bolt and my feed tray and nozzle to you so you can use my parts for the conversion and help keep the costs down? And would want a second barrel as well. RM We are working with a couple vendors to get our rough costs for a better idea. Barrels will be chromed on ...

Re: MG42 Bolt Body Issue

I think I just discovered the issue, it is the DAG muzzle device. When I screw it all the way on I noticed it pushes the barrel back about a quarter of an inch so the barrel is not able to fully extend during operation. Attaching an MG3 flasher hider does not do this. I think this explains why I am...

Our plan is to make a lighter barrel for Semi auto function. Other than that, it should truly be a drop in conversion.

Accessories are on the back burner till the conversions are done. Assault drums, loaders, etc. all will Be R&D projects down the line.

Re: Something Special we have been working on...

223 is on our radar once we get past the x39 R&D. Basically just running the crap out of it to test reliability etc.. As for the bolt head, its the same. The extractor is modified. We plan on issuing our kit with a bolt head spaced to the barrels. So instead of swapping the extractor out you can...

Its a little more complex than that. Although we did not modify any springs to get the action to cycle the x39 has a lot less @ss. It does run standard 8mm links..

Something Special we have been working on...

We were told it couldn't be done but after 2 years of theory an testing the MG42/M53 is running 7.62x39. Ammo is about 1/3 the cost of 8mm or 762. We plan on doing a batch of these conversions later this year after we are fully tested. Enjoy

WTB: Broken MG34 barrel jacket, booster, grip

Looking for some broken unusable MG34 parts, I need the barrel jacket, booster, and a grip stick. These will be used to make a wall hanger so I prefer unserviceable parts.

I would even take dimensions off one and build my own if someone could provide them. I suppose I could reverse engineer one from scratch but dimensions will make it easier.

I see what you are saying on that. As I said I have never used it, but it does appear to have been used. I wasnt saying it was a WWII unit either just it is made with WWII parts. Guess its just a Nazi marked piece of metal at this point... There is another piece that was with the barrel, not sure if...
