My question for you all,
I'm converting an MG3 AA Dreibein to a "late-war" MG-34 dreibein. I've managed to strip the paint and prep the metal surface, all I need to do is convert the spindle (the shaft that can adjust up and down for height) so it can accept a reproduction MG-34 swing/cradle mount.
My question: has anyone reproduced this part? Or can you modify the existing MG-3 one? If so could anyone recommend a machinist or help me with this crucial and final part of my conversion?
I'd greatly appreciate any insight.
