Re: Bi pod let down

The consensus is that the simplified bipods were among the last to be produced during the War, out of whatever was still available. They are described in Folke's first book on page130. "Later, the MG42 bipod was redesigned and simplified...." He mentions that the studs that hold the bipod ...

Re: shroud repair bushing question

Hi Pk. The repair bushing is a somewhat complex part somewhat inexpensive to purchase new from RobertRTG. The easiest way to install it in your shroud is to open a "window" half in the front, remove the old destroyed bushing, then re-install the window by clamping it good over the new bush...

Re: MG-42 parts kit??

Welcome to the site. It looks like your friend has a 100% welded, F/A Yugo clone receiver, and a parts kit with some of the semi-mods done and semi-parts included. He will certainly want to do the semi-mods to the receiver and sell it to you through an FFL to keep things on the up-n-up, since you di...

Best place to post this would be in the "MG42 Build-it-yourself" section. That said, you have some nice parts, but are a long way from a working weapon. If you love to build, by all means order the rear sheetmetal and get started! But if you want to shoot sooner, a better choice is a "...
