sorry,,,,I used to run large MG shoots up here and I've seen and shot a whole lot of '42s (Never had an MG74 show up though) ;)

Got a tripod for that sucker yet?

Shot a German MG3 on a couple of friendship shoots with them while stationed in Germany, its a 7.62mm blow torch, much more of a rush than an M-60.
