Mg42 adjustable front sight

Post by Abominog »

Got a few kits that came out of Yugoslavia. One has an adjustable front sight. I did a search on it, and the only image I can find of an mg42 adjustable front sight is on airsoft! https://www.evike.com/products/55741/

Thoughts?

I think a picture of YOUR front sight would be more interesting than looking at an Airsoft front sight. [diz]

I'll get a photo John. In the mean time, the airsoft was clearly modeled after something (or they used surplus military sights) maybe somebody knows?

With it, the FH catch is interesting, though obviously it's stamped, the surface is striated with ravines, if I didn't know better I'd say it was a poor casting.

Neither are marked.

Bingo. Look at Myrvang UMG book page 130 figure 143. A preproduction 1943 BNZ with the adjustable front sight
