    I have been trying to get the BC assy to strip the round from the RPD belts but it takes 2or 3 hits to get them push from the very tight links. I have a 16" M60 return spring with about 1 1/2" of inital compression and about 6 1/2" total compression. The bolt face is about 1" from the back of the feed try at it's rear most travel. I am going to increase that a bit and get more compression and BC assy inertia. I am also going to open up the links by pushing an overside round bar into them from the side. I will try that on a few links on the end of the belt as I don't know how much they can be opened without cracking and changing the pitch of the belt.

    I opening up the links by pressing a .535 diameter round bar into each link. Now the cartridges fit in the links about as tight as in the MG3 links and it feed, chambers and ejects fine. I will post pictures as soon as I can. It is ready to test fire but this week end is the start of the muzzleloader deer hunt and my son and I are going.

    I got the hand guards, butt plate and cocking handle attached. I need to drill the trunnion for the barrel pin,(virgin trunnion) open up some more links and it's ready to test fire. I hope I can try it this weekend. I need to eventually mill out some areas on the receiver side plates and drill some lighting holes on some of the internal parts, because the extra MG47ES 1/8" wall receiver it's quite heavy for a bull-pup and needs to be lightened up.

    Test fired the MG47BP last Sunday. Firing pin is not striking the primers hard enough to set them off all the time. When they did fire, it cycled fine. I installed a different hammer spring and a heavier hammer. I need to give the hammer more travel to have more inertia and try it on some primed cases until I get consistant ignition. I removed the wood covering from the handgrips and it looks alot better, not so fat on the front. Also moved the cocking handle off to the side so I can see the front sight. Kind of important if I expect to hit anything.
