John is the best. I speak some German and John is perfect in his translations. I have purchased some of his MG42 assessories and they are exactly as advertised.

Thanks John

Thank God for John Baum, and what he has done for all of us guys who are interested in German WWII weapons & equipment.....WTH would we do without all of his translated manuals!.... :cheer:
.....He is a first class gentleman when you spend a few minutes talking with him face to face! (on the phone too)
.....Thanks John!
Beautiful women are like well built machineguns: Some should just be looked at, and left alone, while others were built to get hot.

I ordered 2 Mg42 manuals from John. Great pictures and descriptions on the weapon. I would recommend these to anyone wanting to learn about the operation of this gun.

John rocks,he has done a huge service to collectors and builders.He took it upon himself to do a task and its been a dervice to many,I always reccommend his books as its coin well spent.Shipping is always prompt and hes just a plain old nice guy to know and speak to,always helpful.

Old post or not I had to comment. Nothing but the up most respect for John and his work.
I have several of his manuals and enjoy our conversations at the Knob Creek MG shoot.
He offers a great service for all of us collectors and shooters. :beer:

Yes they are top notch and very high quality, right down to the paper. John is fast to ship as well. Anyone considering buying or building an MG42/53/3 whether it is a FA or semi needs to get these to understand the workings of the gun. We are very lucky to have such a well knowledged astute member.

I bought all translations of J & Baun on MG34 42.
Fortunately they exist because the German documents are difficult to translate with the characters Fracktur.
