Wartime German MG42 Cam Section for sale. WTS or WTT

Post by MGSchutze » Mon Aug 03, 2020 1:26 pm

Original WW2 German MG42 Cam Section for sale. 175.00 or Trades

German wartime Cam section,"AR" Mauser code with Waffenamt on top middle. This is not a matching set, but it is in excellent condition with no cracks, chipping or impacted areas. The ramps are in near perfect condition so Im guessing a relatively low round count overall.

Would prefer trades, I am primarily looking for an MG3 or Yugo Bolt in Excellent/Serviceable condition.

Or, if anyone has these, I am also looking for:
WWII German Wartime Feed Tray Cover and tray
WWII German Wartime Bipod
MG42 or M53 Buffer Assembly
MG42 or M53 Recuperator Body/Housing

Please PM me if interested, thanks!

EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that these markings may have been forged. I am not an expert in Waffenamts or other markings. This cam section came with a legit kit I bought last year, a 1944 CRA gun.

If anyone has any opinions to share, feel free to PM me. Kind of a downer if this is indeed true. The gun and everything else that came with it were legit, so I have no reason to believe (until now) that this cam section would not be the same.

If I can confirm these markings have been added post war, I will take down the listing.

Edit:

With the help of Abominog (who i really trust knows his stuff) and another forum member, Im convinced this piece is an older forgery. Why someone would want to add markings to an already marked cam section is beyond me (stupid!).

Im still offering it for sale if someone is interested, maybe someone collects these or can make use of it. It still appears to be a German part of good quality so I am offering it for 35.00 or trade towards another listed part I need. Thanks everybody and sorry for the confusion.

Gotta be about the worst attempt at a Waffenamt I've ever seen - (no offense).

Haha, no offense taken, John. I dont know why I didnt pick up on this sooner. My K98 waffenamt on the reciever is a little boogered up, like they didnt get a perfect whack on the stamp, so I guess in the back of my mind I was thinking, "yeah, it looks sorta bad. Just wartime conditions I guess... Air raids... Maybe its stylized... Who am I to question original markings". Upon a zoomed in photo and closer inspection.... It really is terrible. Lol

I have a Mg34 shroud with fake WaA that makes this one look professional.

In the case of this cam, what really matters is condition of the camming surfaces, all else is cosmetic.

Thanks, Abominog. I dont feel quite as bad now.

The part is serviceable and in very good condition so thats why Im keeping it up for sale.

I would love to trade for something, especially. Trying to catch up to you Old Salts is nigh impossible, but I still need a few spares on-hand.
