More progress on my MG34 model

Basically, it is just one of the many many steps on the road to building the receiver.  The receiver is the part of the gun that does all the actual shooting, although the fact mine is going to be solid wood covered in polyester resin makes the chances of it being fired extraordinarily unlikely.  ;)

I would love to see you fire that thing for real...

But since you brought it up first, I was looking around the net for emulation when I stumbled onto a copy of Wolfenstein 3D for the old Atari Jaguar. I downloaded it, and when I played it...it was pretty hi res! The soldiers looked the same with out pixelation, and the walls were very detailed. Maybe its worth a look? You can try to find it at doperoms.com

Nice!  I can only imagine what the police would say if they searched your house. ;D

Is there a particular reason you couldn't get your hands on a real MG34 or an authentic replica (meaning non-Cushman Paintball style), provided that it isn't illegal for some reason?

Really really rad. Cool stuff.

Allen, I don't mean to repeat myself too much but remember that story I told. My street had to be evacuated because my neighbor had real panzerfaust, mortars, grenades, and land mines in his house. How wonky.

Boingo, that model is really cool. You fix your bike trailer?

I thought he fixed the trailer a long time ago...

I really would LOL at what the police would say if they found that...

Probably because it is illegal in Canada. Even in America you can't get one unless either A) The receiver has been cut or B) There is no receiver included. Canada is a bit tighter on gun control than the U.S., so I assume there'd be other difficulties.

Not to mention that purchasing a REAL MG-34 or MG-42 is VERY pricey. Several thousand American dollery-doos quite easily.
Did we really just spend the last decade talking about Chex Quest? Yes. Yes we did.

I regret nothing!

The money alone would be enough reason for me to think twice about purchasing one, especially if I could barely cover groceries.

Heh, well, thems the breaks. People don't want you using 50 year old guns, so they make you pay! JK...

Have any of you played Wolf3D for the Atari Jag? Its super awesome, and even has (I think) all 6 episodes! Its somewhat hires, but not what DeiMwolf will be...

No, more like it's A) a MAJOR collector's item and B) Guns are expensive, especially when they're military grade weaponry.

civilians are not allowed to own military gradeweps- you can't even buy spiked bi pods.

You can with special license. Also, depends on what state. Nevada [or was it Utah?] has next to nill restrictions. No license needed for full auto weaponry.

To get most special licenses you need to be a cop, or have prior mil service
