Default Build is a real easy one....

The receiver is the hard part due to the machine work. Sounds like Tony's got that covered. Get the kit, and with the receiver it's pretty much an assembly job. Have one, they shooot really nice!

Thanks again PJ for helping me get the receiver work done. The rifle turned out great, is fun to shoot, and really stands out on the rack.
The parts kit from Sarco was in excellent shape.

Interesting comment about the bolts. I have interchanged the bolts with various Garands just to get a color match, & have yet to have one fail to fit or function. PJH

the bolt has to be modified to clear the mag. Sarco has BM59 kits for $600

Best Regards,
I don't know the rules, but since a BM59 is a modified garand, & uses .308 ammo I know it does not qualify for the John garand matches.

You shouldn't! This receiver & a $600 parts kit from Sarco is all you need.

These receivers have been machined to take the Sarco $600 BM59 parts kit. You can assemble the kit yourself. I will mount the barrel & headspace your bolt freebies.
