Let’s be very clear, North Sylva is the importer for these lines. As I have no direct control with orders etc I am not quoting any definite delivery dates or taking “Pre-orders” I am waiting to have our orders and delivery dates confirmed. Even the quantities we will receive are unconfirmed at this time.
TNW – MG34. We have had firsthand experience with problems getting spare parts for these guns in the past. If there are any owners out there who would like to advise me what parts they require and what parts they thing it would be advantageous to have I will work on placing an order for spare parts with North Sylva now. Maybe we will make up a “Field repair kit” and include that with the MG34 that we sell.
I have used an original MG34 in both full and semi auto and she was always a favorite, she worked flawlessly, we even converted her to 7.62 mm NATO, I much preferred her to the MG42. Unfortunately in order for TNW to manufacture a new semi auto MG34 to suit exacting US requirements rather than create a “converted Automatic” (which would be prohibited in Canada) the trigger pull is heavy and certainly the first guns lost some of their famed reliability. I spoke with a TNW engineer at North Sylva’s recent show and I am confident the latest MG34’s will be much improved over their early ones.
