    The Yugoslav M53 (and the MG42) Thread

    There is the possibility of purchasing a Yugoslav M53 in the near future (not in Canada of course!) and I was wondering if anyone here has any familiarity with it and can also comment on the differences between the M53 and MG42 and the interchangeability of parts etc.

    Cheers!

    Of course, of course, I wouldn't think of anything less!

    There is basically a Polish version of TradeEx that has a whole pile of them. They seem to be quite popular at the moment!

    Funny thing is I have a Yugo K98 that I got from TradeEx (German parts with new Yugo markings, I can still see the original German markings under the Yugo crest on top of the receiver). One day they'll look quite nice side by side

    I believe Dilligaf knows the 42 quite well.

    And maybe look into how you might become a small scale exporter? Rules are kinda different when the US isn’t involved...

    Alright, this thread officially sucks. Not a single photo! Please, even a stock photo will do. I don't even know what a M53 looks like. I shouldn't have to google it in a gun forum.

    The good news/bad news is these are still open bolt (as far as I understand)! But on the flip side, I've had this crazy idea of maybe importing some guns from Canada. Wouldn't it be a gas if I could rescue some poor C1A1?

    Don't worry when I end up getting this thing there will be lots of photos.
