Re: M53 bushing replacement

I would double check your booster threading, my MG-3 cut shroud has no issue with the either of my M53 boosters or my MG-3 booster. Could you have the "OEM new" instead of "used" RTG reciever bushing? It says there may be addition machining required for the "OEM new" one.

Re: Receiver and shroud source

Try Allegheny Arsenal they seem to be only one's at the moment that I can see. Most of the other sites that I was looking at sourcing a kit from last year have gone out of stock.

An APEX kit is definitely better IMO, even with buying the components from RTG for 308 if you starting from zero. Still it's not totally bad if you only need components minus the receiver an...

Re: Introductions (or one way to increase your post count).

Hey all, just starting out planning my first build, I hope to pick up a lot of great advice from you guys and with any luck figure out all mysteries, as a noob, of the differences between the mg42 and mg3 clone I'd like to build and get everything sorted towards my new adventure! :D

Re: WTB MG42 Barrel 7.62 X 51

Are there still 308 barrels on th...
