Semi mg42 parts

Postby motley13crue » Wed Oct 19, 2016 10:02 pm

Is anyone still selling modified grip sticks and bolts for use in a semi auto mg42? Or is there anyone here that modifies them? I am having trouble finding them for my build. Thanks.

Did BRP quit? They made them. Didn't you like the semi grip that RTG sells?

Where have you checked?

Brp was out of stock so was rtg. I checked into the ones panacebeachbum was doing but he is no longer making them either.

Wow, you'll have to continue with the build and get the other stuff done. By then, parts will probably be back in stock again.

Last I knew Apex had some NOS stock grips from Wiselite.

Apex have the semi grips minus the AR internals. Wouldn't be hard to use one of them. They list a tall and short type, given the choice I'd go with the tall type which moves the hammer lower in regards to the bolt (which is a common issue on these conversions).

The Wiselite AR style grip is almost the same thing as the BRP, other than it attaches in the front a bit different but if you have not made the cuts on the receiver yet it will not matter. I've used them both and can post pics of the differences if needed.

You could also try contacting Wiselite for a complete grip and bolt carrier. Their B/C uses a two piece FP vs BRP's one piece FP BTW. Again I have used both, both types have plus's and minus, but both work well.

These are the final two parts of the build. I'll look into those, thanks for the replies.

Call BRP
I just got a bolt.
They will notify you on there next run. I would get on their waiting list. Good luck.

I talked with Brian at BRP the other day and he told me that somebody is getting in 900 M53 kits. So he is starting to ramp up semi-parts. He told me a few weeks before the grip sticks will be ready.

For those still interested in semi auto bolts, I see RTG has a few semi auto bolt carriers in stock now, both with bolt head and without. RTG lists them now too with the bolt head (type II). BRP also now have semi auto bolt carriers kits (Type I) as well.


Hopefully they will have some grip stocks listed soon.
