how much would it cost to have a M42 (the MG42 yugoslavian copy) made? I know the kits are like $300-500.... whats the total cost? thanks

For all the info you could need on a mg42 check out www.panzer46.net . This site is devoted almost entirely to the mg42 and rebuilding them into semis. Good luck and hope to see you over there.

where are you seeing this kits?

Also...Are parts compatable with the original mg42.

Copy doesn't mean compatable clone

You could try Dan at Angola Armory and see if he has any more MG-42 kits left. He was selling them for $550 with a WWII receiver that the Germans converted to .308 in the1950's. From what I have heard they are the nicest kits yet. Go to MG-42.us. All your questions will be answered there. Very friendly people. BTW, my kit will arrive next week.

Link to kits?
Link Posted: 1/28/2006 2:32:50 AM EDT
Type in angolaarmory.com Or call Dan at 716-549-0106. Nice guy to talk to. I hate to admit it but I don't know how to link his site. And what are you doing up so early in the morning?

Dans parts are absolutely awesome! If he has any left, don't wait to get. They will be gone! I bought a receiver from him and it is beautiful (other than the cuts). White phosphate finish and totally rebuildable. And to top it off he sends you a nice non pc bumper sticker too! Happiness is a Beltfed Weapon

I also looked into this, when these kits started showing up this summer.

The kit is around $300-$500. There's a few makers of semi receivers, they're charging around the same maybe $500 or so? Just do a google on semi-auto MG42 MG34 receivers, and that's how I found one of the builders. In all you're gonna spend around $1500 or more for a complete build.

man, $1500s a bit higher than I expected. If it was more around $800-1000 id definitly consider it, hell id sell my PTR to finance it prolly

In reality, a $1500 MG42 clone isn't too bad.

We can get $1000 to $1200 1919 belt feds without accs.

However, with the new kits comming in, the price should come close to maching.

I want a 8mm MG42, not the .308 Yugos (though you can get ones with 8mm barrels).

Availibility of new ammo makes me lean towards a .308.

Do you require a license to build a MG42 kit? I didnt think licenses were required to build kits?

Thats what I thought, but a few sites made mention to a license. I was wondering WTF......

Ah well. In a way thats kinda bad news, cause it gives me no reason not to build one other then the fact I really cant afford too and I was saving the pennies for a .50......But I think I might prefer an MG42 over the .50........

So, if you build one you can at a later time sell it right, even without being registered?

you're talking semi right?

I was scared to get into one of these after I couldn't find a builder anywhere, just the 80% receivers. If someone knows a builder give me the link, I might be able to con my dad into pitching in for one.

I think (I could be wrong) there still is the issue of 922 compliance.
