Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

This weekend, I am going to try the MG42 again to try to solve the case separation problem. Last time, Of my 5 barrels 7.62 Barrels, 3 barrels had no case separation, 2 barrels had case separation with both Lake City and Malaysian. I want to verify the three barrels that tested good and see if any o...

Re: BW Sonderwerkzeug Werkzeugausstattung

I tried my different barrel bolt combination with both the German BW 7.62 gauge that came with the kit and the Forster two gauge set. The Foster gauges are labeled "7.62 NATO", one is marked "1.6455 MAX", the other is marked "1.6355 MIN". The BW gauge from the kit is ma...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

Roger that, I had LC separate as well. The Malaysian, seemed to separate in the middle and the Lake City toward the base? So, I suspect that even thought the bolt barrel combinations head space good, two of the barrels have something going on. I followed Franks instructions and gave the chambers a s...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

Thanks for the report on the Malaysian. If you don't have ammo problems, it could be a bad Lot or two of my barrels? I have five 7.62 Barrels, two seem to be the problem. I inspected them, Gave them a good cleaning, tested headspace again. I even installed and tried a MG3 BW HK Marked Cam Piece, (&q...

Re: BW Sonderwerkzeug Werkzeugausstattung

Here are photos of the kit. It does have a 7.62 and 9mm no go Gage. It also has a bunch of dummy rounds. They are tarnished, maybe I should put them into the tumbler. I can see that I am missing the small screw driver, hard to tell what else Let me know if you recognize anything. I really need the TDv

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

Thanks Frank for the detailed reply. The first thing that I did after I got the gun was to have Bob rebuild my recuperator with his new springs. At first, the Malaysian was tearing off in the middle. Last time out, Some of the Malaysian and 2011 Lake City tore off near the base the rest tore off in ...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

Thanks John, I will try that. I did a use a bronze brush on a drill bit prior to shooting. The chambers are chrome lined and really shine, so I was not as concerned.

I will try what you described and see if it solves the problem.

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

John, Roger that, all bolts were tested with all barrels and marked. Yet, still two barrels that tested good with the bolts that I was using had case separation with both Malaysian and Lake City??? I have 5 barrels and more than 10 bolts, and a 7.62 NATO case Gage. I have read the manuals, both your...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

I shot the MG42 today. Three barrel bolt combinations fired a number of Malaysian 7.62 without case seperation. Two barrel bolt combinations tore the Malaysian cases in half? Also had a Lake City case seperation. These barrel bolt combinations gaged good? Not sure what is going on with these two bar...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

This past weekend I went for one day to the Shooters Gauntlet MG Shoot, Stone Mountain, in PA. It is a smaller mini Knob Creek. Great Fun, they had five cars, a "tree cutting contest'. I did not have a chance to test Bobs recommendations prior to the shoot. I put in a booster cone with a larger...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

I will not be able to make it to the range this weekend, but will let you know when I do get to the range.

8mm seemed to run fine, I have not tried the wolf, I was using some FN made stuff.

The 80s steel Romanian surplus seemed to run fine in my 08/15.

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

Thanks for testing them out. Here is what bmg17a1, had to say on the gunboards forum. "Case separations are extremely rare with MG42s in my experience with them.... Since you say that the specs are correct compared to NATO, sounds to me like a combination of thin, brittle metal and improperly a...

Re: Maylaisian 7.62 NATO case seperation in MG42

I weighed a number of the Malaysian cases and they were all over from 180 to 185 grains, the Australian Surplus was pretty consistent at about 180'grains, The Lake City was always about 182.6 grains. Not sure what we can tell from this?
