UPDATE - But not on the MG47. There are several hundred die-hard builders and beltfed shooters in general, subscribed to this thread. Therefore I'm posting this here. I've never posted anything like this before.
I am having one hell of a time dealing with OhioRapidfire, on getting a somewhat expensive beltfed rifle ($4K, returned under warranty) repaired. This will come as no surprise to many of you, however I gave them the benefit of the doubt for a long time (well over a year). Will share exactly how long, later (w/ photos of packing slips & correspondence). You who know and have dealt with me, know I am fair, and governed by higher principles than I alone could come up with. Not some whizz-bang genius here, just a tinkering innovator, keeping an eye on my wallet. You all know how 'El Cheapo' was named.
I will keep you all posted as to the outcome. This is merely the springboard before the dive, and the ball is in their court. A fresh thread will detail the outcome, very soon. + or - with details. Wish me luck
Safe Shooting Happy Building
