Curse you, Rhino! Thanks to your post, I see there are 80% MG42 receivers for $450:
Add to this a parts kit w/o the receiver - $500:
more expensive here:
Add a bit 'o' garage work and ya got yerself an MG42 clone! Hrm now that looks nice - never been a big fan of 1919 builds simply because the A6 setup never did anything for me. Now, an MG42 build, well, that's a different story.
Considering the belt feed selections out there, this would be a good investment IMO. You currently have 1919, MG-xx, HK21, Shrike (LOL), and PKMs inbound. Geez - I may get my CC in trouble this summer!
