Re: MG42

Are the chambers in your barrel smooth? Are you having problems with casing stickage in the chamber? Having problems with extraction? Steel casings do not shrink instantly after firing as much as brass cased ammo. Romanian 8mm has an excellent reputation as far as surplus goes. I used it exclusively...

Re: MG 08/15 - Need Advice

I scan the photos at 600 dpi, and use Photoshop to enhance them, and I print the manuals at 1200 dpi. Every photo is the best it can be, but some of them were really crap to start with, and I can only do so much. Often the pictures in the translation are better than they were in the originals. My w...

Re: heart attack

I just passed another kidney stone, my third one. Not as dangerous as a heart attack, but painful. It truly does suck. The rock is in a plastic baggy on the desk in front of me. The thing has a nasty sharp hook on one side. How it managed to work its way out is beyond me. I'm saving it as a souvenir.

Re: MG 08/15 - Need Advice

Well the manual had unexpectedly clear photos for a copy. I can actually see what the photos are demonstrating. It also fills in a few informational holes that The Devil's Paintbrush doesn't show. Great manual!

I want to thank Pat Cassidy publicly for providing hours of advice and even parts support for my upcoming MG 08/15 purchase. I really enjoy learning from fellow members and sharing info.

Re: MG 08/15 - Need Advice

I know you do John! That may come later. For the moment, what I really need at the moment is The Devil's Paintbrush by Collector Guide Publications, hopefully a used copy to keep the cost down.

MG 08/15 - Need Advice

Hi old friends! I am in the process of purchasing an MG 08/15 from a local gentleman here in MN. It comes with 1943 canvas Lewis belts which I'm told work okay with it. My question is, which parts would you check for wear that would make the gun run less reliably? Is it possible to see wear and dete...
