New to the forum. I have found the information here regarding the MGC68 MP40 really helpful so thanks to all.
I bought my MP40 on Speedbid for 161.00 sterling. It was in need of a little attention, rusty and the plastic fore grips were missing, as was the pull bolt.
I was fortune to find a pair of MGC 68 grips on ebay.
The bolt pull was broken off, after tapping and threading the bolt and a bit of work on the lathe I made a replacement.
It has the number 5488 on the barrel.
I cleaned it down, treated the rust and applied bluing to the barrel and body and than cleaned it back to give a worn look.
Was the MGC 68 fitted with a muzzle end nut ? If so, it is missing and would be grateful if anyone can tell me would an original one fit.
It is now rebuilt and with a strong working action, can anyone advise where I can obtain 9mm cap blanks for the MGC68 MP40 ?
Thanks in anticipation.
