i have a rapid fire orf 1919a4 in 7.62 nato. besides the barrel and booster
what do i need to convert to 7.92 mauser and what do i need to change or
modify to the weapon. looks like rear cartridge stop is welded in. i don't
want to butcher the gun in which case i would just get one already set
up for the mauser round. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Think all you need now is a front cartridge guide on the left and a right front cartridge stop. If there is more, I am sure someone else will chime in.
On the home page is a converting tutorial under misc tutorials...it will answer all your questions.

Cannot stress this enough, do not use a 308 booster for 8mm, get an '06 one. If you buy a 8mm front stop that is made from a 308 front stop you do not need the front right '06 stop to hold it in place...it will slip right in and is held in place by the pawl pin. Pics are in the tutorial.

Dan at Angola Armory has new '06 barrel bearing/boosters on sale right now for 25% off, which at $18.75 for a new, unused booster is a very good deal...stock #180 http://www.angolaarmory.com/1919a4.html .
