    Default Got a MAG58 kit!!!

    I have wanted one of these for a couple of years, but the $3,500.00 price tag was a bit steep. DSA put a few of these up on gunbroker last week. I called my contact there and got this one hand select for $2,000.00 it is in excellent condition and the bbl looks new. I can't wait to sort it all out and put all the sub assemblys together.

    figuring out a semi conversion will be a good winter project.

    That is a nice looking kit. But what's a MAG58? Never heard of it before.

    WOW! That is GREAT! You are one lucky juy. That is the ultimate GPMG! I used one extensively in Iraq in 2003 and they are a great gun to be behind. When you need it, they will work! As for a semi conversion, should be interesting. It fires from an open bolt with a fixed firing pin. Keep us informed!

    A trigger housing that looks suspiciously like an MG42 and does that look like a PK style carrier? Hard to tell from the pics. That missing the RHSP suggests you'll need to machine a 1919 semi-only notch into the carrier somewhere. I'm sure you'll figure it out

    Huh, wouldn't that be sorta prone to firing out of battery, or do they have some way around it, like the action having some sort of ratcheting lockup system, or a really strong extractor spring that keeps the round in front of the bolt face and firing pin until it is fully bottomed out in the chamber?
