This dimension is listed in a section about replacing the Cam Piece in the MG42 armorer's manual I'm working on. I checked the dimension on my MG42 original (never welded) receiver and it's accurate.
The distance from the rear edge of the receiver (buttstock end, with stock and base piece removed) to the rear of the rectangular openings where the ramps of the cam piece stick into the receiver = 382 mm. The spec says it can be short by 0.2 mm.
I thought that'd be a good measurement to have when welding up those receiver pieces.
