Re: MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

Thanks guys, I got two more Nozzles from RTG yesterday, one is marked 11, the other is not marked, I got them with the intent of drilling them out. It seems that factory runs ok without tearing off cases with the 13mm. My reloads run fine with 42.5 IMR4064, with the 11.5 Nozzle. I was going to drill...

Re: MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

A good day at the range with the FA MG42. We took it slow, fired a few, inspected each case for separation, tried different size nozzles, bolt safeties, changed a charging handle that caused light primer strikes from slipping, changed a grip piece that caused problems, a good day, solved lots of pro...

MG42 Trouble Shooting Testing Discussion

Over the weekend, I will test and try to verify if the problems with my FA MG42 in 308 were solved with the 11mm booster nozzle. Last weekend, I fired short bursts of just a few rounds and closely inspected the cases. Of fifty rounds total fired, no signs if case separation. I did have some FTF wher...

Re: WTB 42 Booster, 11mm

Yes, thank you John, yes, thanks, I have your book and looked again, yes Nozzle, or Rückstoßudüse. Sorry I was reading the RTG page at the time and used their term. So, my problem with ripped cases persist. I did some testing yesterday, no issues with 8mm Romanian with 11.5 Nozzle. 7.62 Lake City wo...

WTB 42 Booster, 10mm

I need a booster with a smaller size, 11.5 will not cycle 308, the west German one pulls cases apart, was thinking maybe try 10mm, does anyone know where I can find one?

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.
