Thanks for doing that for me "TC".

The only additional note for members wanting to make these is not to try making/using the shorter front-only spacer as I have had a couple people make these and still had a problem with the shorter blanks raising up at the front.
The "L" Shapped feed-tray-spacer will work best........and can be used with the .308 Blanks and Blanks made from reformed 30/06 brass cases or .270 Win. brass cases.

They can contact me if they have other questions.
If their questions are "general" in nature.....please post them here.....if they are weapon specific (to only one person's weapon/ ashort question) they can e-mail me directly at:

The "L" shaped feed-tray spacer is only used for the MG34/SA34 feed-tray (photo below) as the MG42/SA42 already has a cartridge-depressor in the top-cover to guide the cartridges downward towards the chamber.

(NOTE: Disregard the additional "cuts" shown on the feed-tray-spacer spot-welded/mounted to the MG34 feed-tray and "blued".........this was an original design that I made about 18 (+) years ago and the cut is straight across now.).

Yes.....I am still making the "L" shaped feed-tray-spacers for the MG34/SA34.

I am also still making the 2-pcs. Blank-Barrel-Assemblies for the MG34/SA34 and the MG42/SA42.....either can be ordered in 8x57mm chamber...7.62x51mm/.308 cal. chamber.......or as a fitted-set with both calibers.

Please meet me at my e-mail address for ordering information and price-shipped.

Regards, RichardS in MI.
Blanksguy2001@chartermi.net
PS: I am also looking for spare-barrel-assemblies for the MG34 and MG42......trade or cash-sale.
(NOTE: You can trade-in shot-out barrel-assemblies towards the purchase of a 2-pcs. Blank-Barrel-Assembly......or just an out-right cash-sale.).

This is exactly what the "L" shaped feed-tray-spacer does for the MG34/SA34. It helps to not only keep the front of the shorter Blanks from raising up during feeding, but helps to guide them towards the chamber.
(NOTE: By "shorter-blanks", we are referring to 7.62x51mm/.308 ca. surplus Blanks and Blanks made from standard once-fired 30/06 brass.).

(Also NOTE: This feed-tray-spacer is not required for the MG42/SA42 because the MG42/SA42 already has a long cartridge-depressor in the top-cover where the MG34/SA34 does not.

Blanksguy,
Are you still making/selling the MG34 308 2 piece blank firing barrels? I tried the email address you have listed but it came back as undeliverable.
Thanks in advance,
Jason
