Cool video, Steve. Is that a WWII USMC jacket I see you wearing? With the functioning of the UD-42, is the bolt a lot further back with the first shot and then travel a shorter stroke for every other shot fired?

Yes, the jacket is a At The Front Repro.  Great jacket.  20 round mags fit the pocket just fine.  Not sure about the stroke.  Will have to look it over.

What looks like the bolt cycling different distances is the charging handle bouncing.  When charging the weapon you are supposed to return the handle to the forward position.  The handle should not reciprocate with the bolt.  Like the BAR, Jap LMGs, etc.

 Have owned mine since '86.  My kids will have to sell it after I'm gone, because I never will...........
