Well Im gonna take the obvious wisevss shot here......what do you mean 'make a MG34'? From a demil receiver? Because if you are looking to just build one from scratch, you are barking up the wrong tree. Its virtually impossible without access to an entire machine shop. The reason why the Germans stopped producing this gun was because the receiver was SOOOOO labor intensive.....

There is a guy here who sells a FANTASTIC set of blueprints. The prints cost 30 bucks and are worth every penny. (and believe me, I am one cheap SOB....)

So what you plannng?

Right this is were it becomes hard to follow (said my local fire arms officer).

In the 2007 reduced crime act it stats that a reenactor can build or own a 1-1 scale replica top venting blank firer (i.e. big boys cap gun).

The vet has to be under 2 inch of the round chambering.
Also no original parts can fit on except mags.

(this has came from my local fire arms officer and people that have made them or in the proses of doing so.)

Hardly seems worth the effort, my friend.

I know there are resin castings available, especially in the "Star Wars" community. (The bad guys heavy laser blasters were based on MG34's. Maybe there is something available thru one of their sites....)
