MG42 Parts Diagrams in English

Postby jbaum » Sat Dec 02, 2006 11:48 pm

Here ya go. I added 1c, 12a, 12b, 17a, and 27a, and part 26 wasn't numbered on the picture, so I fixed it. I also resized the picture so that it will print easily on a standard letter sheet of paper (landscape).

Part 18 is technically the Barrel with Locking Piece, but everyone calls it the Barrel Extension, so I'm not going to reinvent the wheel here. :)

I'd like to be the first to thank you john , :thumbs:.

we've needed a stickie thread like this for a long time . Now new comers can become familiar with their parts kits and be able to ask questions with standardized part names.

If you don't mind , I'm going to add a few diagrams I've found scattered on this sight into this one thread for easy reference. I wouldn't be the least surprised if at least half of them Jbaum's posted here originally.
While having these diagrams is a great reference they can not substitute for OWNING a few of his manuals . :thumbs:

Great, DI --

Just what was needed to augment John's translation.

Now newbies like me won't have to look so foolish -- AS OFTEN! :oops:

This thread should be the second thing a new board member sees -- after the MG42 FAQ

Hi, can you e-mail me the first and fourth diagrams? The right sides are cut off and it was the same way when I tried saving them to my desk top. Also, do you have legends to go with the other diagrams that have the parts numbered on them? If this information is already posted somewhere else, I apologize and ask that you please direct me to it. I'm new to this and have a buch of parts that I want to make sure I know what they are.

, I have a couple of MG3 Armorer's repair kits and they have a bunch of bolt parts in them. The parts match up with the Regular Bolt diagram. Do you know if the firing pin, extractor, extractor spring and ejector are the same on both? They appear to be the same in the diagrams and they look the same to me as those that are on the Heavy Bolt that I have with all of my build parts. The only part that looks different is the little piece between the extractor and the spring. Like in the diagrams, it is the same as the one in the Regular Bolt diagram.

Thanks for all the great info and your patience!

Aha! I found the legends, at least for the bolts which is what I was really looking for right now. And of all places, who would've thought I would find those in the "Bolt Tutorial" post?! Duh! It looks like the only parts that aren't interchangeable are the Extractor Plungers. Cool! I reckon somebody out there can use 'em.
