Re: IDF MG34s in-action

Go right to the 3 minute mark,when the Jeep wagon passes.There are 2 34s there,and they have that mysterious carry handle! Mysterious because no-one seems to believe they are IDF made.

Re: Japanese Type 1 (Type 98/MG-15 clone) reactivated

I recognise that picture-it was taken over Kiev-I have posted either that one or another from the strip.On another forum it was discussed,no positive conclusion.Heater was one thought,also a method of removing fumes when fired,a vacuum type maybe. Keep them from building up in the blister. ---bil

Re: Ultra Rare piece of Nazi memorabilia!

I would add that Wolf88 has been a seller of original German items here for several years with no complaints at all.Of course,any collector bidding should do their own research.I think it was offered here as a courtesy to any interested. ---bil

Re: Issues with getting a M53 to run right

Now I may be wrong,BUT- the wiselite receiver was made longer as was the buffer tip.I believe this was so a full-length spring could be used with the converted bolt,which is longer,hence the usual home-biult shortened spring.I believe it was Gordie K that worked on this problem.Thus,is you are runni...
