The long answer: I seriously doubt all that needs to be done is one weld and rails. Is it deslagged? Is the recuperator installed? Properly? Assuming that the rear receiver was several sections and rewelded, was it done right? Semi auto bolt block installed?
Unless this is a single saw cut kit being restored as a full auto, it's not that simple- it takes many hours to restore a MG42, and more to do it as a semi. And even more to fix what some other "gunsmith" screwed up. So be prepared. But do it anyway- it's worth it.

Rear receiver shells don't just get "welded on". They have to be properly sized/ trimmed, welded in a manner that acommodates weld shrinkage, and then machined. That's a lot of work. Even BRP's full receiver, which requires an FFL, still has a lot of work to be done before functional: riveting, milling, and IIRC welding as well.

Also bear in mind semi 42s are kind of a nightmare to get running correctly. Thats why most folks only work the FA ones.
