MG 42 Receiver Tutorial 2
Insert the grip bracket into the receiver, then install the recuperator and tighten down the front bolt. push the grip
bracket forward untill the bracket contacts the rear of the recuperator and center it on the receiver. Now you can spot
and drill the hole for the rear recuperator bolt. Use a .196" drill for this.
This is a view of the recuperator seated on the grip bracket. Notice the clearance on the right for the bolt stud. With
the rear bolt in place the recuperator should sit flat in the bottom of the receiver and up against the left side.
This photos shows the bottom of the receiver with the grip bracket in place with the rear recuperator bolt holding
it in position.
