Just about anything goes but no MG42 or MG34 talk.

JBaum, thank you.

As a newbie to the MG42 world, what books would you recommend froom your link?
Don't want a depot rebuild book, but one for general maintenance, basic parts disassembly, etc, similar to current owners manuals.

Thanks,
David

The single best MG42 manual I have would be HDv 241. Each has some details not covered in the other manuals, but for an operator manual, HDv 241 is tops. It covers all the basics that the shooter needs to know.

I have two copies of HDv 241, one to read in bed, the other to get filthy while working on projects. I highly recommend that volume.

I just bought a used TNW MG34.
Looking forward to learning more about this gun.

Have wanted an MG34 for years.
Finally found one, slightly used, good shape, good price.

The previous owner said he was selling because he never really spent time shooting it.
I have a feeling he was tired of tinkering with it.

I put 40 rounds through it on my first outing.
I did have some feeding troubles but it was fun none the less. :lol:
