This early handle was not very popular indeed. It lacks the leverage of the rolled sheetmetal handle's hook to pry the bolt and barrel back far enough for the bolt to unlock. It's quite tough to pull the bolt/barrel back with, but not beyond that of being an annoyance. You need to apply a very firm ...

I have one of the stocks made by Mike at mgstocks.com. His website appears to be down at the moment. Mike made the stock from walnut and it is PERFECT, even with a waffenamt on the left side. It is used on my C&R MG-42 to allow the original stock to not suffer the dings and abuse from handling a...

The ends of the rivet are almost hemi-spherical. To form the second rivet head after inserting it through the camming pieces, and make it look ORIGINAL, heat the end of the shank to cherry red with a oxy-acetylene torch, support the opposit end of the rivet, and form the head using a ball peen hamme...

I used to build hundred of detailed models when I was younger, mostly WWII ships, tanks and vehicles, but also ships from the age of sail with all the tiny rigging and such. My favorite were WWII German tanks, assault guns, and tankhunters.

Home made simplified receiver? Answer: extremely unlikely. There are name features stamped into the receiver that are necessary for holding the alignment of the internal parts in place, and features like dimples and curves that are important to the overall strength and flex-resistance of the machine...

This is not surprising to me since I have noticed a trend for the BATFE to attempt to stem the construction of rifles made from imported decommissioned parts kits flowing into the country. Implementation of 922r is the start of the trend. The production of semi-auto AK-47's from Bulgarian military A...

The two bolts I received were ordered as-is and are in good condition, both marke dfb with lots of waffenamts also. One of them was blued with anough of the bluing taken off the worn spots to show it was well-used, the other has typical wear. Both worth the $49.00 spent. I do take issue with IO send...

I'm in the process of procuring a WWII lafette and optics from one of the other members on this site. That will take a while since it required refirbishing. After that, I may be looking to sell my postwar MG-3 tripod with Hensoldt optics, light, and battery case. I used it occasionally, using the op...

Oh, the site's banner should definitely stay. No debate there. After what M1 Tanker said about the Century Sporter guns, the SA-42 designation makes a lot more sense to me.

Take it to the extreme. Build a lafette mount for that thing and mount the scope on the lafette complete with azimuth and altitude adjustments. That's good for a few more Ha-Ha's.

Northridge has cut barrels with an intact locking piece. They are like 39.00. We may see them cheaper and then again we may not. Personaly I pick up a few if I was short on them.
