Re: WTB New MG42 Recoil Spring

Try Brian's springs at brpguns.com. They work good.
I believe that he might also be able to help out on an original one also.

Re: wiselite receiver repair

Great Buy!!!!
At that price buy a few more for me to.

Ok on the photos the post limit that you hit was due to the huge size of pics that you uploaded. If you want to post a few more then either downsize the pic or just use another post in this same thread.

Enjoy the great buy.
