Building a MP-44 semi part 1

In previous post we showed the process of machining out a MP-44 trunnion. To test that our trunnions are correct Pete, a friend of gun lab and owner of the trunnions, has started a project of rebuilding a badly torched cut receiver.

It must be stated up front that Pete is licensed to manufacture weapons up to  and including machine guns. This rifle however is being made as a semi auto only and not a machine gun.

This article is a number of posts as the work required to rebuild this rifle is extensive. You can see from the Photo’s just how badly it was destroyed.
