I already have the lower guard pieces in stock for $17.50 ea. Over the next month or so the big cover and upper parts will be done.

i made some extras for the m16 halftracks.
i think they may be the same as m3.

i still have to weld the 1/4-28 square nuts on them.

Can someone confirm the size of the screws and square nuts used on these covers. I’m trying to replace the screws and clean out the threads on the square nuts, but a 1/4 unf is to big, and a No.12 is too small. The 1/4 won’t even pass through the hole the cover so I’m at a complete loss.

I wonder if my cover set up is a post war replacement. It was rebuilt in Germany in the 70’s and I can’t get a 1/4” bolt through the hole, there’s still a square nut in place and which is 1/2” across but the thread could maybe be metric (although the head is 11mm AF). I think I’ll just open the holes to 1/4” and replace the Square nut with the suggested 1/4” UNC.
