Re: Mg42 Plans

Thank you! I had bookmarked that link...very helpful! Will do. I figure if I get it built right and working, than "if" I built another, at least I can just redo what I had done before. ;)

Re: MG42 - MG3 - M53 Build Help

There are many variations for a build. What condition the kit you're starting with, what equipment you have for building, and what you want it to be when you're finished (MG42? MG3? hybrid?
