John, totally off topic, but is there a manual for the MG42 AA tripod available? Since it seems more and more people are using them, it might sell well. Actually there is a manual for the AA tripod. I saw one once, but I rememberd thinking, that it only has one clip with a swivel on top, and a litt...

I use a light grease on my top cover and rails. The manuals say that the MG is only to be lightly oiled, but I'm not shooting in the Russian winter. The dab of grease on the hinge points of the levers, and a couple drops of oil on the moving parts make mine work just fine. To be sure it's clean, you...

Mark Genovese lives in Hawaii and writes for Small Arms Review magazine. Great magazine for the stuff we all like. Hawaii doesn't allow full auto, so Mark goes for the semi stuff pretty seriously. He's bought several manuals from me.

the mini-gun guys were going nuts with 1,000 round bursts. 15 seconds of brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp at a time. I know I heard 50,000 rounds through the miniguns on Friday. I couldn't even guess on Saturday. The guy with the howitzer was just to the right of me on the firing line.... what a shock ...

According to the German manual....

8mm uses a 14mm nozzle, or to increase the rate of fire, an 11.5mm nozzle can be used. The 11mm nozzle is used for .308. The original German manual this information comes from doesn't list nozzles with holes smaller than 11mm.

This information is in the German MG42 manual H.Dv. 216/6.

You should have seen the look I got from my wife when I told her I bought a deckungswinkelmesser.... It was like she thought it was a German sex toy.... Buying and selling a few things to make a couple bucks helps support my habit..... things that shoot, really fast. :D

Yes, the belt loaders really work, and they're worth every penny. Besides that, they're sure to go up in price like all the other accessories, and then they'll be just like the $300 Lafette tripods with optics.... "Boy, sure wish I bought one of those when they were cheap" will echo from message to ...

Gentlemen,

the deckungwinkelmesser is sold. I'm looking for another one, though, so if you're interested, there is still hope.

By a few hundred bucks, I don't mean less than 3.... I've seen several in the last few months under $400, though none with optics for that price. I saw a set of optics sell for $110... I thought that was a good deal, but I already have a set. I can get them from Germany, without optics, for $150, bu...

Reichpapers Deckungswinkelmesser arrived today from Germany. It's in excellent condition, very little wear. It will be on ebay on Thursday for a 10 day auction. That way it will end on Sunday. --- That is provided that nobody makes me an offer and I sell it off ebay..... The last one I sold had lots...

considering the quality of the real thing, and the high cost to even approach the quality, workmanship, and design, and then that the Lafettes are only a couple hundred bucks, in today's marketing terms: "It wouldn't be very cost-effective" to try to make one. Duplicating it exactly would be 3 times...

my biggest laugh is when books are bought for more money than Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble sells them for new, including shipping. I've seen $40 books sell for $75. I recently had a friend tell me about a book he got for $24.... I found it at B&N from one of their resellers. It had a dent in...

a deckungswinkelmesser is a slope measurer. If you want to shoot over a hillside or tree line, you need to know it's elevation relative to yours - is it uphill? how much? Then you can set your adjustments on the Lafette tripod accordingly. This little booger shows the angle of elevation to an object...

Nothing was wrong with it.... I just sold one a week ago on ebay, and I found another one in Germany and it should be here in about 5 more days. I have one that's a keeper, so whenever I can find one, or my buddy in Holland can find one, I get it and sell it here. Prices in Germany are high, but onl...

MG34 manuals

Not trying to beat my own drum too much here, but I have several MG34 manuals translated, including one for the Lafette tripod, and a 212 page 1942 Butz MG34 manual. Great stuff, and more on the way.
