Re: CRA Shroud Date Stamp

My "CRA" shroud looks exactly like yours, with the date cleanly polished out. Can't tell what it ever was.

Re: WTB MG42 rivet tool

Like this one? I see it isn't in stock right now. Typically we just make them out of SAE fine-thread nuts and bolts that just fit inside the rail. Adjust to your dimension. Rivet-away. Or thread the holes in the rails 5mm x .8 and use domed screws that look like "rivets"...Phil https://www.robertrtg...

Re: Buffer cam pieces, clean up or buy new?

The overall length of the buffer tabs isn't critical, it's "the distance from the rear of the receiver to the foreward edge of the tab" that is important. Nobody want a floppy buffer/stock back there. You weld them in "a little deep" (too far foreward), then machine off metal a little at a time from...

Re: MG34 tank barrel shroud A/A adaptor

Not all MG34 panzershrouds were the red colour. I see that some items came out of the bluing tank...purple, like Mauser "ar"-code camming pieces on their MG42s.
My "dot" panzershroud looks pretty original (beat up), but it is blue.
Pretty sure these in the photo are originals.....Phil

http://www.gunbroker.com/item/580914131 Nice set, not mine. Most of these utilize a "clamp-on" foreward A/A sight holder. It was removable in order to slide the gun into the turret mount from the inside. The "aircooled" MG34 shroud uses a front A/A sight holder that pins on, and is smaller and narro...

Re: Mg34 makers code

Is the "s/n 573" on the shroud? I guess it could be a replacement part. I do have one that was buffed so thoroughly that the maker's code was purposely...yet artfully...eliminated, yet the s/n remains clear. Why? Does it look really old (1934-5)? Sometimes makers don't sign their work when they are ...
