I have a jalopy Lafette 34 with no fire control parts and want at least something sort of functional.
So I took the entire FCG out of a Lafette 42. What a task! Three rivets/pins are end-peened.
Looking at John Baum's D124/2 "MG34 Lafette" it appears that the 34 and 42 FCG are the same all the way up to part #G23 Guide Piece. The only difference then would be the trigger assembly which as far as I can find isn't pictured in D124/2 but is part G22 (despite being multiple parts).
That all said, my intention is to use the Lafette 42 trigger assembly and modify it to work with the MG34 on the Lafette 34. Obviously there will be no semi/full capability on the trigger since that is not part of the Lafette 42 assembly.
I can test, play, weld, cut, test, etc. Before I start, any suggestions on dimensions, configuration, etc? Also it looks like this is going to be a bear to reassemble- any suggestions on that?
