    Default MG47 Jr.

    SharpsShooter5090 came up with an ingenious AK-based beltfed design. You can see his build here:
    belt feed ak-47
    Currently over 35 pages, and 13.000 views, he's started an avalanche. I first saw it 11-7-07 and immediately knew I had to try one. It's on page 9 of his thread

    So as not to hijack SharpShooter's original MG47 thread, I've started this one for a 'hopeful' project I'm working on. Basically the same as his MG47, but scaled down to a BF pistol, using an RPD topcover & tray. It's coming along, but slowly



    Using a TEMPORARY AK recoil spring, anchored to the bottom, to test bolt/trunnion centering & lock-up in a 1/16" wall rcvr tube. Shorty gas tube has me concerned, whether it will harness enough pressure to cycle.

    What was done before the above pics were taken, can be found in post 303: belt feed ak-47

    Question

    Has anyone concidered using a Saiga 308 and an mg42 feed cover. perhaps the other calibers such as 223, 7.62x39 or the 30.06. Belts and feed covers for various arms are availible. Sagia's are running about 400.00. Kick it around and see if any interest.

    Jimr -

    I considered a Saiga .308, but already have two HK .308 beltfeds, and seldom shoot either due to the price of ammo. Did my MG47 because it was cheap cheap cheap - already had most of the parts as leftovers

    I believe it would be a fairly straight-forward conversion

    I wish I could work as "slow" as this!

    I'me heading in the same direction as you, with the rpd setup. I am working on a design to get the parts laser cut & bent.

    Are you guy's buying RPD kits to cannibalize? Or is someone selling just the belt feed parts?

    Knob Creek. I lucked into a couple of TC's - no way I could bring myself to cannibalize complete a parts kit - financially nor emotionally

    cntrailrider: Looks cool! Just wondering why you are attempting to use DM links in the
    RPD Feed Tray/Cover? The belts are too wide and the pitch is off. This is bound
    to cause issues with reliability. Just curious, are they just cheap? RPD belts must be
    available.

    You going for a folding stock on that "shorty" ?

    7.62x39 is more easily stripped from DM1 links than RPD links, which are very tight. Bolt carrier won't have the inertia nor recoil spring as in an RPD

    DM1 links/belts are VERY cheap, RPD's are not

    No stock for now, unless I make a longer front end later. No plans for an SBR
