Don't know if this helps you but:

The measurement from the rear of the cam section opening to the rear (buttstock end) of receiver is 382mm (15.039'') according to the mg42 armorers manual. Spec. say it can be short by .2mm .

Also the overall length from muzzle end to rear (not counting buttstock is 37 1/16" according to my info.

I can't find an overall drawing (I thought I had one) but maybe this will help with the above info.
