1919dummie here. After my big rant about yall's leaving and before anyone says" those who live in glass houses" let me say it WASN'T the bickering bull sh*t, that has drove me away. It is the constant censorship I'm fed up with.
With that said, I'll probaly never build a MG42. But will lurk here absorbing the wisdom of you great ones. So, if someone can point me in the direction of the O/T forum, thats where I'll be.
Thanks for the welcome guys! Sheiiiiit I don't think anything I do is known but I like to help if that counts. Haven't had time for much for at least a couple years now.
I don't have my 42 finished all the way cosmetically yet and I still have one more to do. It'll probably be a while till I finish it cause of work but I'd still like to hang out with yall on this topic and chit chat
I finally signed up, now that the 1919a4 site is firewalled at work as it gets filtered as "Weapons" I need another home for 8 hours LOL. Yes, I work for Uncle Sugar, I can't access sites that have "weapons" now that is just sad.
Maybe if they changed the words so they filter as: steel eye candy, or toys, then I might get to spend more time with the other sites.
swilson got me the MG42 bug when I traded him an Armscorp M14 for his unfinished SA42 kit. The SA42 is a fun gun to shoot. So are the Brownings!! ( Building three more Brownings, Izzy 7.62, Canadian C5A1, and Browning M1917A1) Also have Russian Maxim in the wings when the semi-auto design gets approved. I got it beltfed bug bad!!
well ther goes my home at the 1919 cite i gusse i can settle in here for awhile. i have a allied armament 1919A4 with ther wonderful A6 kit which just is made to look cool cause i converted a MG3 tripod and the 1919 is on that. i am currently making some 500rd cloth belts at the testile plant of ours. anyhow i had a MG42 kit with receivers but sold it for $1200 on gunbroker. i am currently trying to get 2 MG34 kits i dont know if the deal wil go through lets hope so. i will have one built and i will keep the other. so that why im here now 1919 is down i also went back to gunboards but this is a nice forum i think ill stay
