Re: Mg 42 Lafette on ebay

What is really sad.........is that I have been offered a few of these WWII Tripods from England (where the "shop-owners" believe that even with the weld-lines on that front weapon-mount, that the "shop-owners" say nothing is wrong...."it's all WWII German"! ). I was even offered an Austrian MG42 Bol...

Re: Mg 42 Lafette on ebay

Hello Bergflak, Thank you for the "link" to that MG42 Lafette on E-Bay. My thoughts are that this is an attempt to pass a "Yugo" Tripod off as WWII German (?)......as evident by the front and rear weapon mounting-brackets.....the "D-Rings", and some of the markings do not look correct. But you have ...

Have you looked on "Bergflak's" web-page in Norway (?).

Also check with BRP-Corp (Brian)......and over to Ohio-Ordnance-Works.

usmc8488, and ncreptile, I have read that Bob-Naess from Black-River-Militaria has done this work in the past......and we have had another MG42-Board member posting some photos and information about his SA42-Build by "Bob".

Re: Converting a 34 from full to semi auto.

Another suggestion might be to make/replace the spring-loaded-release in the rear of trigger with a small-plate that would keep the trigger from moving to the rear more than the semi-only-"travel-distance" when either the upper or lower part of the trigger is pulled on. Just a thought. Regards, Rich...

They are not only on GunBrokerAuctions......but all over E-Bay in USA and DE (Germany).

Also......did you try contacting SARCO, Inc......and ask about the missing table-clamp......or did you buy it this way (?).

Re: Mg42 help w/stampings

Vavoom42, By the photo, it looks more like those markings are from the left-rear of the receiver of the MG42 manufactured by Gustloff-Werke, Suhl in 1943. Below these "engraved" markings should be a serial-number w/wo-prefex.....and under that engraved code of "dfb" (which is the code for Gustloff-W...
