Re: Mp40 telescopic springs

Look into "Wolf-Springs" (or Wolfe-Springs) in a search of the internet.
They use to make new MP40 recoil-springs.

Re: Need Help converting Wise Lite Gen 2 to 308

Just measure the front hole on the Booster-Cup/"Nozzle".....and let us know what size you have......possibly another Board member here has a smaller one ...

radar645, You have asked a question about "something slowing the hammer down".......and it has been answered in two separate post. A hammer can be slowed down by "any" contact with the bolt-assembly as the hammer moves from "cocked-position" till it hits the rear of the firing-pin. You can check thi...

.......and as of today (6 May 2015) there is another set of MG34 Lafette inner-rails on E-Bay.DE (Germany).

Spiggs, I have taken the liberty to "barrow" the photo TactAdv posted earlier to remind you that you do not have to manufacture a new Flash-Hider........just the small-flat-Booster-"Disk" that sits inside the front of the Flash-Hider. Please look at the short/flat-part (Booster-Disk) that is sitting...

Re: 34 lafette bracket

Just remember if you copy the MG34 Lafette-front-mounting-bracket (to weld into an MG42-Lafette-Rail-system) that when the MG34 Barrel-Jacket pivots to the right, it also "cams" forward about 3/8" in that front mount.
