There has been several good posts on this website about making one. However that said take a good look at the following website

http://www.tnwfirearms.com/photos.shtml

Note the equipment that they use to make the receivers. There has been talk about edm equipment and other things being used. I wish you a lot of luck.

Lots of folks buy several mg34 cut receivers and re-weld them...

for prints,try Maschinengewehr34.com Glenn Fahrquhar He sold some sets here,









i have one somewhere,but as mentioned above,the expensive machinery used would keep most from going the avenue. ---bil

The set of prints that Fahrquhar put out are nice ones. Think long and hard before you think of starting to make a mg34 receiver from scratch. That said it's been done by several countries and at least one company.

Interesting. As far as i can read blueprints this info is NOT in the J&G/ Farquist prints.

Would it not be in the TNW semi package?
