Re: M53 .308 (it works)

Well at this point in time you have one that works in .308.. Me, I'm still looking at a pile of parts that I hope to build someday into something that works..
Also you have parts that might help you to get one going in 8mm at a later date.

Wish I had a working one. Enjoy LIFE....

Great, glad that it's working for you now.
At some time double check the parts that you removed... It has been stated by others here that a mix of German and Yugo parts can cause problems..

Have fun with the mg
