    word I heard was that there was a Canadian model that did it , and that somebody here in the states used to do the conversion . could just be bullshit/wishful thinking , sure would be sweet though

    The conversion is called a C5. PamW (very talented machinist) over at 1919a4.com did it and it works great. It can and has been done. Many shoots later and hers still wows the boys. Contact her. She was doing some for other members last we spoke. Thats been 6-8 months ago though.

    Call "Machine Gun Dave" at Sarco, they sometimes have individual parts for the Canadian version that uses the push through links. Many moons ago they had complete conversion kits but were sold out years ago.

    Well ok then , looked around and the conversion is just way to much squeeze for the juice . On to the next quest , Anybody know the whereabouts of one of those home shop made ,single round , cloth belt loaders ? there was a guy on 1919 selling them , but his last post was about 4 months ago .

    I think I see an m60 in Wills future! First he gets an mg42, then converts it to an mg3 running m60 links because you can get good 308 pre linked from SG. Then he thinks, boy, it would be great if I coulsd use this stuff in my 1919!! then next thing you know he is sitting on a mountain of m60 links and says what the hell, I got all these links, I might as well get an m60 to use them in!!
