We are working on getting a VERY small number of saw cut MG34 receivers soon. These came in years ago and were hoarded away until we uncovered them in a collection. They are saw cut 3 times, one in the rear section, one in the front section, and the third is a cut that detaches the one right side of the receiver(the slotted side of the receiver). All pieces are included, all receivers have nice original WWII markings etc. we are looking at a sale price sub $700. Just seeing what sort of interest there is here before we post them elsewhere.

Here is a photo that we received. I will have a sample receiver in the next few days to get better shots of and review in person.

Now that I am looking at this and pulled my torch cut kit, it seems these aren't really horizontal cut.

Removed section is shorter than the the length of the place from which it was cut, so there is a piece missing. Having welded up a couple of torched kits for post-samples, personally, I'd rather start with torched sections. Good project for someone with lots of enthusiasm and time.

The sections photoed are likely not the same receiver. He has several and just pulled pieces to show us the cuts. I will have a much better idea once I have on in my hands.

A saw cut matching set is nice but like Bob said the torched ones work fine also. I sold a couple of overlapping torch cut 34 receiver sets at KCR for $350 in the last year.

At KCR for the last 2 shows TNW had crates of saw cut 34 fronts and rears for $50 each. At the October shoot someone bought the balance of the front ends and they just sold out of the rest of the rear's in April.
