Nice job, I wish someone had done this earlier, I had no idea what to expect when I ordered mine.

Nope they are used but they were drill rifles so how much could they have been used?

Still thinking about that some of the parts need to be redone like the rear sight. There is a place near me that will check out the parts for me.

Called them they said that the bolts they got were welded and the firing pin was removed so they do not have any more firing pin's. But with the look of this kit I feel I can afford the 30 bucks for one. I almost spent the extra 35 for the stock because of the stories on the net about how the stocks suck with these kits. Maybe that is how they are compensating for the firing pin?

That looks really good!!
To put it in perspective......the trigger group along goes for $250 to $300 in that condition easily and the op-rod is a solid $200. Figure $450 to $500 just for those two parts if you were to piece it together on your own.
Looks like you got a really great kit!!
Are you going to refinish any of those parts or leave them just as they are (with the history of them built right in)??
