TW 25B Or Bob's Marvel Custom oil ?

Good afternoon.
Ref:Above Products.
Have been using TW 25 for a number of years on various SMG/MG.
Bought a bottle of Bobs oil from Brian at BRP.
Can it be used instead of TW ?
Primarily on the '34 ?
Thanks for any information.
Pray for Spring!

Sending the tray back to BRP,and Brian will send me another one. Said he would try it in his '34..308 to make sure all is c...

Do I have a problem with the above kit? Installed the unit. Real simple. BUT the feed cover will not close! IF I remove the feed tray . Shuts fine.

Re: Lafette Mount Recoil Assembly

Hi John.
I have been using your manual D124/2 while cleaning and mounting the
'34, and the MG Z.
Thanks so very much for all you have done for the nuts in the machine gun crowd.
If one lived closer,I'd buy you a Guinness!
We have to find that manual for the scope!
Take care, Sir.
