Found this forum when researching M53 builds. An MG42 has always been on my gun bucket list. Couldn't get an authentic 42, so I settled for an M53 kit.
A little about myself. I'm probably one of the younger members at 26. I am a mechanical engineer. I reverse-engineer aircraft components. In addition, I'm also a machinist (manual and CNC) and mechanic. All of which seem to go hand in hand here. I'm extremely fortunate enough to have access to all the machinery and metrology equipment a guy could ever dream of.
I've learned a ton reading for hours on the forum already. Seems like a wealth of knowledge here. Thanks to the admins for keeping up with things!
I look forward to sending the first chunk of lead downrange!
