Default MG42 - detect the fakes! receiver types

Hello guys,

I´ve got some interesting info for you. There are 3 different MG42 receiver types and no one of them is similar to the MG53 receiver.

I did not mention, that the MG53 has a significant welding on the left side and the AA attachment is missing, because these details are easy to fake:-(

So I need your help and I want you to send me your MG42 data with detailed pics.

If you want the comparison as a pdf file with a higher resolution, send me an email!

But look at the pics and enjoy it!

Thanks and greetings from Austria

Cool
Thanks David, i wasn't aware of that forum.
Probably the right place to find a P38 for sale too. And at a fair price i guess, since the members there know their stuff.

Hello!

I sent you to e-mail photos of my MG 42, 1945.
Here it is.
