Hi everyone, I am a new member to this forum. I have read through a lot of the posts here about building the semi-auto MG42/M53, but I still didn't find the info to help with my specific situation.
I have a M53 kit with everything and a set of "repair sections" from global machining (I know many people here like global machining). The problem is the "repair sections" have about 1/2 inch excessive length at the very rear and this made it impossible for me to use the rear edge as the zero reference for marking the place for drilling or milling. So, I am wondering if someone can share his expertise on those "long version" receiver stamping from global machining: I want to know exactly how long the excessive length should I trim off at the rear, so I can use the rear as a reference for my build.Should I just trim off 1/2 inch?
I believe I saw a member of this forum posting a picture about the regular length and long length version of those receiver sections from global machining.
You help is greatly appreciated!
