Here is a couple of pictures of my newly restored german Lafette 34 that was converted by the norwegian army to be used with the MG3 machinegun. I have sandblasted all the parts and then painted the whole tripod in the right red undercoating and then painted it the correct feldgrau color. It was alot of work but now it`s finally all done, just need a airsoft MG42 now
scarfy: What do you guys think about the idea of making reproduction SCR-300 backpack radios? like for those large scale immersion games where platoon to platoon communication over long distance is needed. I think it would be a cool idea for a business.

Dracul: Does anyone know where I can get stock screws for my King Arms Thompson? The one closer to the pistol grip fell out this past weekend.

LϟϟAH1944: M14 to G43 is very hard

Dracul: There are numerous threads in the Armory section about M14 to G43 conversions. There isn't one solid method just yet unfortunately.

spcmann281: plus i got excited and the first thing i came across were leggings so thats what i'm building around
Jun 15, 2015 0:18:14 GMT -5
Abbot: I'm fairly certain the leggings were allowed and used thoughout the war... The infantry were not issued new gear as quickly as the airborne, so the service shoes were most likely used almost up to the end, but don't quote me...
