    Default More MG42 parts incoming

    Dan at Angola Armory just got some 8mm barrels in stock - buy while you can!

    He said that he's working on getting some more receivers in stock around the Summer-Autumn timeframe!!! He doesn't take pre-orders, but will put you on a notification list if you email him your wish list. Cheezy I thought of you...

    Indeed! And he did say he goes on a first-come, first-served basis.

    the more i look at this the more i think i gotta hold off. after school, if there are still kits, i should be in a better position to do this.

    The 42 is something that interests me but I don't know how complicated to whole build would be. I found the G3 and AK to be easy enough but the 42 receiver scares me.

    It's not that hard to build if you can weld, or know somone who can. if you can't and don't then a mg42 build will be out of the question. Allough you could possibly just take it to a weld shop *if* they let you stick around to stay legal. Also a jig makes it 100x easier to keep it straight when welding.............

    Divide and conquer, man! Split it into small tasks and it really isn't that hard. You'll need a dremel and a way to rivet the rails (BFH? Air hammer?). The welding alignment seems to be the hardest part for most. Getting those pieces aligned with no reference except an eyeball is difficult. C-clamps, fishing line, and aluminum stock go a long way in alignment.

    It is jigsaw-like in that every disconnected piece has another piece to use as a reference... e.g. the rear section can use the top cover latch as a reference, and the squareness of the sides. The middle has the camming piece (aka trunion) and matching dimples on top/bottom to measure. The front has the barrel and the top/side centerlines.

    I took my time and spent an entire evening on each weld, hand-fitting and verifying stuff, spot-welding, and re-verifying. Took some time but mine is in alignment.

    It isn't impossible... just a bunch of little things to reverse-engineer to get to work in SA mode.
