Some photos of mine Semi auto open bolt MG53

Som pictures from the first successful test firing :)

The first time I tested the weapon, the trigger reset was bent due to too high gas pressure. So I had to bend it back again and then I had to file it down a bit for the weapon to work properly again. :)

And then I lowered the gas pressure by screwing the booster cone five clicks back.

The booster is not meant to be used as a gas pressure regulator. Using a nozzle with a larger opening is the standard thing to do. Nozzles come with a variety of sizes of holes, and are selected based on need.

I'm gonna guess you're (also) in Poland?

Heh, I picked up one of those too. Surely the whole country must have one at this point!
