Rivets redux

Post by Bil »

I have more free rivets-please only ask for what you need.There were some problems-since solved-with the P.O.,and some of the first batch didnt get through.I also cant find the original addresses.So I needan address for Chris O. in woodinville,WA.Also041X and PPSH41.I will be sending rivets to:GDMoore :D ,SARIN,SISU,and AFTERSHOCK2222.I have your addresses.I need addresses for:FEDUPWBS,DOC CHENEYI have rivets in 2 sizes -3/16x3/4 and5/32.The 5/32 is pretty close to the metric-it slips into the hole with a little slack that will be taken up when the rivet is bucked.The 3/16 does not slip into the hole-the receiver and rail will have to be drilled out.3/16 is the size I use,as the holes are sometimes egg-shaped or damaged by removal of the old rivets.This way you get your rails clamped in place and drill both so the holes line up.If I were using a new receiver and new rails,I would use the 5/32 rivets.If your holes are ok and the rails line up,5/32 would be good,too.Remember that there is a right and a left rail,and they will fit either side,but WILL NOT WORK on the wrong side.See stickies section for more info,or the excellant manuals by our own Jbaum.Anyone not on the above list that would like to get some free rivets for the rails on your mg42/53,please PM me with your name and address.I cant send your rivets by e-mail,PO only.Each gun takes 10 rivets,I send 11 or12 to account for F.U.s I expect to hear from the state of Arizona ,you guys are going build crazy.I dont want anything for these,and will even pay postage.However,if you look way down on the bottom of the home page there is a place where you can donate to the site using paypal.If you would donate,it would be real nice.Salt [and others] put a lot into this site and we get to use it for free! now that is a real deal.Lets help out with the costs and give whatever you think its worth. When I am out of rivets I will let you know.Thanks ---bil

You are welcome,guys.Those that havent gotten theirs yet-a batch went out on Thurs,and more going out on Monday.No favors to me-read the original post offer-if you feel you owe anything,send a donation to the site-it takes time and money to keep this going,and its free to us.Where else can you get such a deal!? So look on the bottom of the opening page,way down ..There is a banner that you can use to donate to the site using Paypal.Thanks. ---bil

:ot:

this good wholesome thread wandered off topic from here and into a mindfield :roll: so i split it and sent the BS elsewhere.

Bil glad to see you living up to the MG42 unofficial slogan
"members helping members " . keep up the good work.
"good , bad, .....I'm the man with the gun."

Its amazing anything works right around here with a bunch of
over-age juvenile delinquents running the place.
