We are now getting between 1-2 thousand spam mails every day that we sift through to see that we don’t delete legitimate mail. This is a big time killer so until we get the site setup better we are going to ask that if you want to comment or ask a question etc you send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org . As of today all bulk spam here will be deleted and the hour or so will shift back to making rifles. Thanks!
Take a look at this cool video! www.youtube.com/watch?v=jN4lvZbAe04
Here are a couple of short vids of the .308 version firing ammo out of a M1A mag. :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyQ9xVYC_7k and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9LQ5RTBzNQ&list=UUx_82n4MtZMg13c_n0-Lt6A&index=2&feature=plcp
This rifle can also be made Ca. legal by making the mag release to be below flush of the mag well with a small hole requiring a pin for operation. This we will do for free if the buyer resides there.
The only downside to this “California” version is that since the end of the mag catch is what holds the doors closed they will remain open all the time.
For this reason if anyone from that state gets on our list for a future FG42 rifle and does not wish to have the mag doors or hinges period – since they serve no purpose – then we will deduct 250.00 from the basic cost of the rifle.
We are making a list for those interested in buying the FG42 in .308 and if you want to be on that list please write us at email@example.com. The price is the same for the 8mm rifle – $4,995.00.
A little more info…..
The mags used are M1A mags with a different mag catch/notch cut and using the slightly narrowed (in the front only) G3 follower and spring to get away from the bolt stop on the follower that the original M1A mag has. This sounds like a big deal but G3 mags are cheap and it is the best thing we have come up with yet that works 100% over and over again. The stock M1A mag will work simply by cutting the new mag catch but once the bolt has driven it down into the mag body after the last round a few times it starts to cause feed issues.
We have shot the .308 rifle enough without any issues that we will be building that rifle using the M1A mag with the re-dimensioned mag adapter and mag doors.
Attached pics are of the .308 rifle sides as they are on a 8mm cut receiver with the .308 mag adapter and 8mm length ejection port. Dimensions on the .308 adapter will be tightened so things will look even cleaner so don’t worry – we know it is not perfect.
And as always, let me know your thoughts
Pre production .308 rifle with scope but no mag doors yet utilizing M1A magazine with only mag catch modified – as compared to full production 8mm rifle.
