Default New BM-59

Last week I sent a Grade-B receiver to Tony (aka The Garand Guy) Gman366 to make into a BM-59. I just received it back today so super fast turn around and I must say I doubt anyone would be disappointed. I know he runs ads in WTS section but this is what you will receive. Mostly SA parts with a the needed PB parts make it a BM-59. The barrel is a SIAU 1967 (see this quarters GCA Journal pg. 29) that gauged a 1.5 at the muzzle.
Here is a picture, I know the toe is ugly and the dog is cute, she would not come out of the shade today, its about 98-100 here in NC today.

I agree with Eli. How did you get your stock to look that good? What kind of wood is it? Mine is beech, I think. Hard as a rock.

Range report, went to the range at 0800 today and put 80 rounds through the BM-59. I had this target at 200 yards. The ammo was German surplus 7.62x51 that come in the boxes in the lower left. Once it was dialed in I stapled a paper plate over the chest and when hitting the plate was boring, I went for head shots.
I can say I REALLY enjoy shooting this rifle. I think this wood is walnut, it has no marks, only a MT stamped in the right side of the buttstock, I did not do anything to the stock, right out of the box is how it looks now.
I can say, She is a keeper!

Does anyone know what the MT is for? I cannot find it in any of my books.
Thanks
