Weapon for a game

Postby Lord Elpus » Sun Mar 31, 2019 3:49 pm

Signed on to play at the Tonga game, German side for a change, have got a Mg 42 ready for spare. Then realised I haven’t got any other German weapons up and running, so I thought I’d better try and finish the mp40 I started about 18 months ago.
Had a fair bit done already but not fitted the replacement hop unit in properly, using an AK 47 style metal one, and then have to set up a trigger switch as I’d done away with the stupid long bar system to the internal switch. Already fitted a gates mosfet some time ago so I thought I’d utilise the little button remote switch that comes with the mosfet kit.

Had a little problem with mag feed but now sorted, fires good and straight, tightbore fitted too. I do expect a few more teething troubles yet though, trigger works really well......for the moment!

Mp40 all sorted, runs at 330 fps, very good range for a shorty barrel, I might even get my short style k98 finished as well.
