Re: WTB MG34 feed tray

30Thdiv, Are you looking for a specific type of MG34 Feed-Tray........or just something to convert to fire the shorter 7.62x51mm Blanks (?). As an alternative(s).........try asking the bigger Class-III Dealers such as Bob-Landies at Ohio-Ordnance-Works.........or Bob Naess over at Black-River-Milita...

Re: 308 MG42 Ammo Reloading

Easymoney, The Military usually has their MG Barrel's Chambers reamed a little on the loose side to allow for dirt/powder-fowling during firing of many rounds under unknown conditions. This will usually show up as brass that shows expanded cases in the area just forward of the extractor-groove on th...

Re: 308 MG42 Ammo Reloading

easymoney, Some things that you might want to look at are: 1: SAMMI-Specs. for 7.62x51mm NATO Chambers vs. Commercial .308 Winchester Chambers. I think you will find out that the Military chambers are slightly larger. 2: When "sizing" rifle-brass (especially after being fired in a Military...

Re: 7.92X57 to 7.62.51 Conversion questions?

Tmiller, The conversion is very simple.........and you may only have to use a 2-pcs. Blank-Barrel-Assembly and try different "restrictors" (dependent on the Blanks that you will be using and the outside temp.) to make an M53 fire 7.62x51mm/.308 Blanks reliably. Have you looked into the &qu...

........been a while on this subject (been moving State-so-State) so I thought I would check in to see if anyone has come up with additional photos and/or information on the Finish 7.62x54R conversion......or worked on their own project (?).

Re: MG34 Semi auto bolt jamming

When MG34 new Ejector-Pins (part of the Bolt-Assembly) are fitted to a Bolt-Head, they are sometimes required to be trimmed on the end of the pin that makes contact with the Ejector-Plate. This is done due to excess material dragging inside the receiver when a cartridge is mounted in the Bolt-Face.....
