Re: MG34 Semi auto bolt jamming

When MG34 new Ejector-Pins (part of the Bolt-Assembly) are fitted to a Bolt-Head, they are sometimes required to be trimmed on the end of the pin that makes contact with the Ejector-Plate. This is done due to excess material dragging inside the receiver when a cartridge is mounted in the Bolt-Face.....

Re: MG 42 Build:Headspacing a New barrel?

....remember to torque down the barrel into the barrel-extension and "stake" it at the notch in the Barrel-Extension forward face. If the barrel-extension does not have a "notch", then grind a small notch to stake the barrel to. I don't remember if it was early MG42 barrel-assemblies were not staked...

Re: MG42 Booster Cone

Hello again Daniele, What you are calling a "Barrel-Guide", I am guessing is the Barrel-Bearing.......this came in two different length (not hole-sizes). The longer Barrel-Bearing held the pressure inside the Booster-Cup/"Nozzle" a split-second longer than the shorter Barrel-Bearing. The Booster-Cup...

Re: MG42 Booster Cone

Hello Daniele, The photos that you posted are of a standard MG42 Booster-Cup/"Nozzle".......it may or may not be WWII. If of WWII manufacture, it was later marked/engraved with the weapon serial-number. As to your second question, the numbers engraved on this part seem to be of "Post-War" design.......

Jaredrlewman, .....this MG42 Blank-Barrel-Assembly is not made correctly and is not WWII German. It appears made of some WWII German Barrel-Parts. Without the flair on the rear of the barrel-section (which allows the "Barrel-Stop" riveted to the receiver under the rear-sight to stop the forward move...

Re: WTB: New old stock MG34 bolt

I would guess what you are looking for is an "un-numbered" "Armorers" Bolt-Assembly (?).....as would be found in one of the MG34 Parts-Can (?).

What would one be worth now if one could be found (?).
