    It's regular old hot rolled 1.5" square .120 wall tube that I bought from the local steel yard(Santa Rita steel in Tucson, AZ.) I couldn't find 4130/4140 tubing in that dimension, so I went with what I could find. I bought 3 feet of it and chopped it in half, I'll trim off the excess as I finish it up.


    Onlinemetals.com is an online source for this stuff.
    Order Mild Steel A36 Square Tube in Small Quantities at OnlineMetals.com

    Just be warned that this stuff is heavily stressed when rolled, so when you make your first cut, it will pop and spread open at the cut. Nothing a bit of vise action can't fix later. The only real up side to using the A36 is that it really files easily if you don't have a mill to cut the rails.
    Hated by many, loved by few.

    If you build the ES version most of the material is available from Home depot or Lowes.

    Here is a couple of images of a MG42/53 gripstick modified with a AR15 FCG that should work in a MG47.

    For those looking for the tubing for the gas system check with your local hydraulic suppliers. I work in a Fabrication shop and we have mild steel and stainless steel hydraulic tubing I was able to find the sizes that I needed out of our rack. One last thing. Were I work we sell lots of steel. My foremen has told me over and over we have no scrap. Its not scrap until its in the scrap yard. I have had people tell me that they are looking for a little scrap of 1/2 plate 24 X36. That is not a little piece and it defiantly is not scrap. We do our best to keep our customers happy. Most times if it is something small and we do not have to cut it it goes out the door for a contribution to our donut fund. People that complain the whole time that we are helping them about the cost usually don't get off so easy. Another thing ask about a cut fee many times you are better off taking a larger piece and cutting it your self than paying us to cut it to size for you. One last thing coming in the door and knowing what it is you want is a big help. It makes things go so much faster. Usually when we talk about steel first is the thickness X width X legenth. Good luck to all with dealing with your local shop.

    Man, this thread just past 40,080 views and 7,935 views for the one on MG47ES. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that the MG47 concept would be anything but a passing fancy of interest to only a few.

    Very nice, and very business-looking indeed.
