Hello friends I believe that the mg42 and the mg34 lafette are much the same except the mounting and trigger actuator. i am changing a lafette that was once a 34 but altered by the Yugoslav army post war to a 42. I have seen drawings on the web . What i would like are images of the mg34 actuator left to right and also parts in the sleigh that join these parts . the mg34 actuator is single/auto fire
The lafette i have i have removed the 42 sleigh and am ready to exchange the original 34 sleigh. So if there is some one out there who knows in detail with images of the association of these parts trigger actuator and sleigh mg34 it would be very helpful Robert.
Hello thanks for your image. If you look At Reidars web site mg 34 lafette there is a trigger mechanism called schuckebier it is said to be an early style mg34 trigger actuator? It is courtesy of 42 rocker states as a "retro " trigger early type. It is different to your image abominog. I am about to reassemble but i think there are some springs or a spring missing. More information would be grateful Bauble.
Hello i am from Australia i have been looking for information about my mg34 lafette since last year. The trigger actuator is the early style i have worked out it was missing a coil spring no problem. and the two parts are held together via one pin type screw that engages in a slot in the adjacent part. They all then fit into the side rail and is held there with one pin. Before i reassemble i will up load some pictures when i work out how .
