Re: Receiver advice on build type

Someone just gave up on a build using the cold steel receiver.
I would go with the one that brp sells myself
Or go with the complete m-53 cut one that AA sells. This is the one that I would do if I did not own several 3 or 4 cut German receivers.

Re: Which top cover is less common?

I think that feed back of this type would be great. I tried to start something on different maker marks a while back but it was shot down by a mod, who is not a mod anymore. So it would be great to start going forth with getting data and info on this site. On the top covers, I only own a few MG34 to...

Re: Way fast firing MG42

That's a Texas fast all right 180 rounds per minute. Wow.
If I remember my reading. Speed is also factor of how "Hot" the ammo is. So how "hot" is that ammo.Smoking Hot or what????

More Later when I get another break at work.

Re: Converting Lafette42 trigger for Lafette 34

The parts that you seek have been up for sale on this site and do show up on both evil bay and gunbroker.
Some of the last MG34 lafettes have fcg's that look like the MG42 lafette fcg.

Re: MG42 Ammunition Types on Panzers

Interesting Question. Also Welcome to the site. As both MG34's and MG42's used the same ammo belts etc the answer should be the same. I believe that the Panzer's used MG34's. Answer don't know but when I get to work on Monday I'll look in the Tiger manual that John translated and see if the answer i...

Re: M53 receiver stampings don't reach cut barrel shroud.

There have been several different cuts from different time periods. Short cuts were the norm for several years then centerfire got in a load of receivers that had longer cuts. One of time periods of the shorter cut was about 10 to 15 years ago. For a time period there was a piece being sold as a fil...

Not sure if a list of sizes was ever made. As with a lot of those items they are the same size. There are several photo (or were, Thanks to off site hosting) topic listings that showed the differences. Pic by pic comparisons.

Re: Mg42 on a mg3 tripod

Believe me set the trigger lever straight out towards you and slap it down fast and it will go thru a 50 rd belt so fast you will not think about crank fire unless you have lots of ammo. Been there done that with the slap of the trigger bar before.
Enjoy
Looking forward to the pics.

Re: 10 round belt.

Like the idea of keeping the belt length at 50 and doing the grind out so only 10 can be loaded in a row. Nice idea. Ok, question can you receive the belt and then grind it before anyone knows or ???? So happen to live in a state does not have those rules. And I/we don't have those problems. Later 4...
