Default Bm59 receivers for sale

Since real BM59 receivers cannot be imported into the country, the next best thing is to have a USGI receiver machined out to accept a BM59 parts kit (available from some vendors for $600).



Cost for machining out a USGI receiver $500 (comparable cost)
Cost of receiver $200-$250 (pitted) or $350 (no pitting)

I have a few USGI receivers machined out to take the BM59 parts kit $600, + $15 shipping. FFL required. If you send me your barrel, bolt, & front mag catch, I will install the barrel, headspace the bolt, and mount the front mag catch freebies.

to view pix, click on the link in heckinohio posting If you e-mail me at gman366@comcast.net, I will send you pix of my BM59's & M1 Garand conversion
BM59, complete $1195.00, + $25 shipping
Garand with box magazine, $1295, + $25 shipping
Short barrel Garand, $1395, + $25 shipping.

OK, I know what a BM59 is. But I don't know how it fits within the framework of CMP/NRA competition. Would you help me out here please...

Best Regards,

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but will a regular Garand bolt work or will it have to be modified in some way?

I have posted here that I have 4 of these rifles completed & one where I had the receiver done for a CMP site user. He can chime in if he wants to. These are dandy rifles, I cant imagine being without a couple now that I have finished & fired the ones I have. Using the Beretta kits that have been offered will certainly make an easy job of it..... Other than the machining work, I did mine at home. You need to make sure the offered receiver job is for the kits available. Rifles pictured, You 'do it your selfers' can email me for assistance/encouragement should you think you need it........and most of the parts in the kits are identical to US Garand parts. In fact, many of the parts I have received are US mfgr anyway. All of the trigger housings I got were HRA's.

Dstout,.... The M1 bolt has to be modified to get proper functioning with the BM59 magazine. If you obtain a BM59 parts kit the bolt has been modified.
