Re: MG42

looks good except the topcover. It looks shot up around the feedtray area. I hope the rest of her ain't damaged. Am I wrong? Are those bullet holes or someone creatively vent it?

Re: Remove MG42 Barrel from Collar / Barrel Extension

Drill out the stake mark put penetrating oil on and lock it in a vise .put a big pipe wrench on it or a wrench with a pipe extension and it should come right out. If you have any extra stubs let me know I could use one. Hell if you want me to pull them for you pm me we can work somthing out.
