Re: WTS MG34 Gunner's Pouch With Contents (new price)

Bil, there is no barrel bushing. That is a sulfur container.

I'm sure the pouch and tools are ok to cross, but the bolt for sure can't go.

Re: WTS MG34 Gunner's Pouch With Contents (new price)

Yes, But I don't know about the legalities of shipping this to Canada. And don't have the time to research it at this moment what is legal, what taxes and fee's that apply. So rather ship to USA only at the moment.

This is indeed a sad day. But Nostradamus, the Mayans and the Hopi Indians did predict this. :shock:

Thanks!!

The paint was your basic oil base, so I just used paint thinner. And I added a small amount of japan dryer (follow directions on can).

Re: riveting

yeah, seems like a lot of work to achieve the same results. I like simple. If you use draw cleco's to hold the rail in place, the rails won't move. Yeah, I rivet one at a time and then turn around the rivet jig and do the other side. But it's still simple and no need to mill anything.

Re: Newb Checking In

if the wingnut on the back is loose and the large knob still won't turn, then I suspect the grease in the gears may be hard. Also, that knob pulls outward to allow more movement up and down for elevation.
