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.

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.
