    Go to the "beltfed" area just below, look for the post "MG47 JR".
    Also look for "MG47" in this section, I think that thread will answer most of your questions.

    As it has been said multiple times... You'll want to read the original MG-47 thread about 50 times before you 'get it' and even then you'll maybe only know about 75% of what you'll need to know to finish these builds.

    I've read it about 60 times now, and I'm still hardly getting started!

    I built the original MG47 and in building the MG47ES I tried to simplify things but it's still an adaptation of a a bunch of various different part not originally intended to to work together. The relationship of the top cover/feed tray to the trunnion and chamber is very critical as well as the cam roller to the bolt face. Read all the posts on the MG47, MG47jr and the MG47ES several times until you understand how the parts all work together. Ask questions if you have to. All of us previous builders would be more than happy to try to answer your questions even if you think it might be stupid. It took me 7 or 8 months to get the first one working, alot of thought and false starts. When you do get it done and fully functioning, it's a great, almost euphoric feeling. Don't give up, if you can build an AK you can build a MG47, it just takes a bit longer, a bit more involved and takes a bit more patiences.

    Yikes, you found me. I really have not been shouting except for a few warrented cases.
    The MG47ES working is one thoses cases. Now I need to get real busy and put together all my build pictures of the ES and get the drawing finished so they are available to everybody. If you read my 88 some posts on MG47 beltfeed and Mg47ES you will see I have kept my voice down and haven't shouted much.

    SharpsShooter5090,

    I was wondering... You mention you got some of your steel from Home Depot.

    I've been to my two nearby Home Depots, and I can't find ANY square tube steel at ANY of them... Is there some particular SECTION of HD where I should be looking? I just can't seem to find it anywhere... What parts did you get from your HD?

    I appreciate any info, so I can get to buying some of the steel & other supplies for this build!

    The steel I got for the MG47ES was at Home Depot. The square tubing is for the original MG47, I got it a SpeedyMetals.com. The MG47ES receiver is not made out of square tubing but flat bar bolted together with small angle all of which you can get at HD.
