Thanks John. Coming from you that means a lot. As to the hook on the AR hammer, I had already cut it off, as I was afraid it might hang up on the bolt.
And I know what you mean about others bragging about their AR builds. I hear that all the time, as if it was something difficult to do. I just let them brag, and go on about my "rat killing" as my daddy used to say.

awesome man! glad there no problems or hickups. Gives me a lot of hope for my build. Yea I can't stand it when the guys with their AR's actually think it takes a lot of effort.

congratulations on the success!

Thanks Along. I know what you mean about the AR guys. I built my brother-in-law an AR, but to hear him tell it he was a one man show. After I built it, and test fired, sighted in and tuned the trigger, I caught him bragging to his buddy's about how he had to step in and "help me out". Needless to say, we don't speak anymore.
He doesn't even know about the MG, if he did he'd probably tell his friends about how he bailed me out. As I have always said - "Some peoples kids????!!!!"

Congratulations Rodom. That's quite an accomplishment.
Sorry I haven't been around for awhile. Sounds like you got it all figured out. Very happy for you. Enjoy.
Oh yeah. Having a lafette really increases your ammo consumption. :lol:

Hey Guys, I need to know what I have here. This is the roughest looking stock and buffer I have seen.

It looks like a really rushed effort, with glued spots where the wood broke thru during the construction. The release for the buffer is recessed so far I had to push on it with a screwdriver to get it to release. Is it possible this was some "end of war" piece, or just junk?

Thanks John. That's pretty much what I was thinking it was. It's an interesting paper weight. Don't guess anyone would want it.

If it's German, I'd buy the cup. The wood would help heat my house. :)
