The reason I'm posting this here is because Alleghany Arsenal sells AK parts along with other types. I recently had a horrible experience with them. It was the first and last time I'll deal with them. Buyer beware........I don't want anyone to have to go through the same problems I'm involved with now. I don't have an axe to grind with Alleghany and I just want to get my money back. Please heed this warning.
DO NOT deal with Alleghany Arsenal. They are selling Yugo M-53 parts sets pawned off as MG-42 parts sets. The parts sets are advertised as excellent condition mostly German WWII MG-42 parts kits. What they deliver are Yugo M-53 part kits containing a few German parts. The quality of the parts vary from excellent to fair. It's a rip off. I know - I purchased one from Orin's group buy and got taken.
Then there's the damaged and missing parts. No recuperator, no feedtray. The trunnion was mismatched German and Yugoslavian - the side plate would not even slide into the trunnion groove.
On top of it all Alleghany Arsenal's owner Greg is the at the bottom on everyone's list in customer service. Absolutely the worse. Now I have to go through my credit card company to attempt to get relief. What a mess - what a mistake.
Don't do like me. Don't ever deal with Alleghany Arsenal.
