Re: Does Case Length Matter?

What John said. Case length matters. Reloaded cases should be checked for overall length being in tolerance and trimmed accordingly. Neck rifle cases stretch when fired, pistol cases without cases don't. If you don't check them for overall length after 2-3 reloads, you're taking a chance they will n...

Re: Urgent help this MG42 butt ok ? Original ?

Not an original wood stock, but exceptionally well duplicated as far as shape. Don't know if the markings are totally accurate to original shape and size, but at least the Waffenamt portion is in the right place (though the size of the eagle is suspect). Good repro stocks like this are very hard to ...

Re: URGENT:remove blue on Reblued MG s

If you use a bluing remover from a bottle, available at MidwayUSA.com or Brownells.com or many gun product stores, you will be left with shiny white metal. You cant do this very cheaply. Bluing is not like paint, where you can carefully remove one layer from another. It's a controlled metal oxide ma...

Re: best oil/grease for maintaining mg's

Whether you use grease or a good lubricating oil, be sure to clean all the oil, powder residue, and other dirt from the firearm as soon as you can right after shooting, then apply fresh clean lubricant. Running dirty lubricant will cause the bluing to wear off and even steel wear, and chemically it ...

Re: MG 42 Build:Headspacing a New barrel?

The barrel screws in all the way to the shoulder. Now you will need a Go and a NoGo gauge. The field gauge will show you when the head spacing is beyond the NoGo stage into the DANGEROUS HOLY SH1T DON'T YOU FRIGGIN' PULL THAT TRIGGER stage. The headspacing is way to large, and casings may rupture an...

Re: What kind of 8mm surplus ammo is this?

John's a bit strong but he's right about the ammo you have. It's risky to use because of the the locations of where it came from, the quality. However, 1970's steel cased Romanian is still not bad for old surplus ammo. Some people use 1950's Yugoslavian despite the hard primers, because the MG-42 ca...

This is what I did with my new motorcycle a few weeks ago. I got it stuck.

This is a new to me 2003 R1150GS Adventure with 115,000 miles on it, and I bought it to USE it... a...

Re: WTB: Mp44 bolt

REASONABLE is whatever a buyer is willing to pay for it. Just sayin'... I hope you find one. Parts like that are getting more scarce each year. It's hard to anticipate what parts you might want or need ahead of time, but stockpiling earlier DOES pay off. If anyone has a spare bolt, I'm sure you'll h...
