  1. .223 M60 Parts - A closer look

    Time to resuscitate this thread. Anyone have any progress reports on either the .223 or 7.62x39 conversions? My checkbook is still ready and waiting.
  2. Over on uzitalk.com there is a MAC forum which includes a thread regarding newly-made springs for the coffin mags (Suomi coffin mags 2.0). Apparently there is a drive on to make another batch of new springs for these interesting magazines and it might be worth your while to get in on it. It is very common to have problems with the last round or two (or three) in a magazine if the magazine spring(s) are weak.
  3. 7.62x39 HK 21

    For quite a few years Mike Otte of Michael's Machines has been saying that he was going to offer a 7.62x39 version of his MM 23E/21E, but so far nothing has actually been offered. I'm still hopeful, as it would be an interesting alternative to the 21E in .308 and the 23E in .223.

    My checkbook is standing by for when you start selling them.
  5. Lewis Gun Problems

    Yeah, I saw that a little after I posted here. Good luck with your Lewis.
  6. Lewis Gun Problems

    I can offer a few suggestions. The front end of the op rod can be a major source of gas leakage, as it gets the major blast of gas and most of the old ammo was very corrosive. If you go over to www.machinegunboards.com you will find a forum dedicated to the Lewis and Bren guns. There are a few very helpful guys there that are intimate with the Lewis who can probably help you out. The threads in the "nozzle" are for a blank firing adapter and have nothing to do with operation with regular ammo. Bob Naess at Black River Militaria in Vermont is very knowledgeable about Lewis Guns and other old time guns so if the guys over at machinegun boards can't help, he might be able to.
  7. Yugo m-49 VS romanian 8mm ?

    Mike; Is there any way to identify "good" 8mm barrels?
