i got an mg42 parts kit for christmas. seems to be every part for the internals, barrel, barrel shroud, muzzle, grip assembly, butt, etc. did not come with a receiver. I have some metal work to do to clean up what is here. i would like to know if there is anywhere i can get a receiver blank or one thats not totally trashed. I'm not looking to make this shoot just to make a static display for my ww2 collection but be able to move parts on it to show how it worked. any suggestions or tips from anyone that has built one?

I think you are going to be hard pressed to find a receiver that will allow you to insert the original bolt unless you leave the receiver in multiple pieces, and/or modify the bolt. Ive had an MG53 kit for years that I should have had built up when people were making transferable semi receivers for them. At this point it looks like dummy gun or move and build for me. :(


Are you looking for just the back half or the entire receiver?
