    Lots of BIY info here, is "the" place all the MG42 BIY folks combine their info:

    According to posts, 8mm is either all gone or very very expensive. I think the 8mm ship has already sailed, and I missed it because I've exceeded my spending budget on other guns due to the barrel ban BS That leaves you with 308 only. I feel lucky I got the 308 stuff piled away

    That said, I can GUARAN-DAMN-TEE you will see 8mm at outrageous prices in a few months. Buy it then, because you'll never see it again unless someone needs to sell gets a divorce, gets married, or buys a house. When you pay the "gouge tax" just keep telling yourself it will only hurt for a little while

    A few places you may want to look at for parts (I know of no others):

    Here's a pic of my M53 I built last month. It runs like a scalded dog at about 900 rounds per minute. Note the wood grips and carry handle.

    Yeah, I know.........I need to build some of those carry handles for sale. A lot of guys seem to want one.

    The M53 is actually one of my better builds. The thing looks like an original one piece receiver. You can't see ANY cuts/welds or other BS. Some of my other stuff looks a bit cobbled up, but not this one......even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile............

    Here's some pics of my BRP receiver. There are a couple shots that looks bent or out of alignment, but they're actually straight. My camera does hinky things on macro with curved surfaces.



    Overall view of receiver. This is how it looks straight out of the box (except for the storage grease and plastic wrap...).




    The BRP receiver is made up of 4 individual stamped pieces that are welded together. The front half has top and bottom pieces. The rear half has left and right pieces. The halves are joined together under the camming piece (trunnion). From the exterior appearance, you would think it's a single piece.



    Internal view of receiver front showing weld penetration.





    Exterior view of same area.





    Weld coloration at camming piece area.





    Interior view through rear of receiver. This is the only shot I can currently take that shows any of the rear welds. The rest of the welds are covered by the installed parts. You can see the feed lever through the top opening.

    In this view, you can see the blocking bar that BRP installs in the dummy receiver. The plate is a piece of 1/8" steel that is welded at the rivet locations. The plate is notched to allow installation of the buffer.

    Removal of this plate will be fairly easy. First, I'll spot down the weld puddles on the outside of the receiver with an endmill. Then I'll drill through the exact center with an 1/8" endmill. A good hard smack with the little BMFH will remove the plate after the welds are drilled.

    I'll TIG up the rivet holes in my rails and redrill them to line up with the holes in the receiver. It'll be easier than trying to match the receiver to the rail holes.


    .
    The most damning evidence is the truth.

    That which does not kill you, really really really hurts...
