Click on the triggers to see the animation. On the first one, right click and select play.

Sorry about the background. It's meant to be displayed on a white background.

I noticed they focused on the metal belts for the MG-42 when talking diagramming the feeding and extraction.

How do the cloth belts not get in the way of the feeding and extraction process?

Cloth belts like used in a browning 1919 ?
The browning design pulls the round back out of the belt, then lowers the round under the "feedtray" as it feeds it forward into the chamber.
The 42 is a push through design where the belts hold 3/4 of the round ,open on the bottom, and the bolt pushes the round (forward only) into the chamber.

The 42 has a simpler, I feel a better design.
"good , bad, .....I'm the man with the gun."

Its amazing anything works right around here with a bunch of
over-age juvenile delinquents running the place.

Hey also there is a cool, free app on your phone called "weappns field strip". You can find it in google play.

One of the most high detailed little "games" pertainings to function and cycle of operations ive ever seen. Just as good as world of guns (which ive found useful for some things, including teaching).

This little phone app you can load, unload, fire and field strip. Also see the weapon in 3d and in slow motion. It has the MG42 and a slew of other MGs, rifles, pistols and shotguns. Really good stuff. You can even reassemble without some parts and the physics will act accordingly.
