Re: Pricing of semi MG/M53 now in 2017?

The recoil spring Is supposed to reach from the rear of the receiver to the front edge of the feed tray, according to the manual. It does not make any sense. Springs measure around 16 to 17 inches and from rear of the receiver to the front feed tray is about 14.5 inches. Give me exact measurements ...

Re: Pricing of semi MG/M53 now in 2017?

do you have the metric specs of the MG42 receiver? I can't seem to find solid answer. What main spring lengths are out there?

Re: Pricing of semi MG/M53 now in 2017?

So M53 has 11.5mm booster cone opening and 47mm long barrel bearing? This is what I have. Yugo manual is 264 pages long and is probably written based on german manuals but it does not indicate measurments of the parts, this leads me to believe Yugos only made one size.

Re: Pricing of semi MG/M53 now in 2017?

I've had my MG42 for 20 years, and have not experienced any problems getting it to run well. I don't run 40 year old junk ammunition in it either It seems odd that you recognize a problem with the ammunition, yet blame the gun because it's full auto. The inability of the owner to get the gun to run...

Re: Pricing of semi MG/M53 now in 2017?

I don't do the semi 42s, so it may well be worth more. Full auto MG42 is not fun, I see few guys on the gun range always get frustrated, it never runs smooth, it will rip 10 rounds then stop, then do 20 then stop, then do 5 then stop, by the end of the day they wasted 1000 rounds and were dirty as ...

Re: 8mm Romanian surplus

That ammo is junk. When people refer to Romanian ammo they mean this ammo http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=A8Rom

In fact just use newest stuff

Re: Allegheny Arsenal

I got the booster and extractor leaf but he did not send me anti bounce spring and all Yugo bolts do come with it. What is the point of buying a parts kit where parts are missing? I have to say that Alleghany Arsenal service is horrible, now I have to spend $15 to get that spring just to have comple...

Re: Allegheny Arsenal

Mat at Alleghany Arsenal (MG34.com) was short and arrogant with me. Photo of their parts kit is so small and I wanted to be clear what I am getting for $800. He refused to get into details at all and just said kit is excellent. I got the kit and it is missing whole buffer. Bolt is missing ejector ro...

Re: Crack in MG 42 Receiver and stuck cases

That crack has nothing to do with malfunction of the gun, it is not on a critical location. That Romanian ammunition is from 1973, look at the two digits. All hot-shot did is buy some garbage Romanian surplus and boxed it and called it their own brand. Any ammunition that is that old will be unrelia...
