Nice build, where would one acquire one of these Bula receivers? Would like to build one for myself. Putting on the barrel is'nt any different than correctly putting one on a garand providing that the receiver is properly machined. I would have to think that it would be (with cnc machines replacing the dedicated operations that were used when the originals would have been made) easier to duplicate to closer tolerances. Just out of curiosity, does anyone actually know how the locking lugs on garands and 14s were originally cut. Being that they are actually portions of a 5tpi 90 degree thread I think they might have been put in with some kind of lead screw arrangement. The tool marks visible in the lugs may suggest this but I'm just surmising
