    Sounds unique! Maybe the barrel isn't welded shut and the block can be cut out and cleaned up. Then make it in to a semi. But I don't know if it's legal to activate a dewat?????

    It's not a dewat if it truly was cut up & then rewelded as a solid receiver.

    When it was cut, it became scrap metal. Just like kits recently imported.

    To meet BATF regs, the gun was functionally destroyed and will never chamber a round, function, cycle, etc. It
    Sounds like they plugged the barrel...

    Value as parts is less than the current price of a ZB26 parts set, because of the additional alteration to the kit being welding up as a dummy. I would think there is little possibilty of ever building it as a working semi. Depends on how much usefull parts are there. Omega had a couple of Chinese 8mm "resistance" Brens that were converted by the VN to 7.62x39mm, they were heavily handled, worn guns parts sets. Interesting, but obvious 3rd world issue. Primo price though, $5-600.00, if I recall.

    A pic from my orphan gallery on GN.


    Value as a dummy is in the eye of the potential purchaser. Maybe up to $600.00 now. Especially as VN collectables will continue to escalate..... I'd keep it from rusting & display proudly.

    well I talked to the guy how Im getting it from. I asked him about the reciever weld and he couldnt tell me. from the pic the only place it looks like it might have been cut is by back of mag well.... this could be a very old dewat. looks like a few tacks holding action open. he seems to think all the internals are there. and doesnt think barrel is plugged. sounded kinda nervous..... I'll keep you poste on what i get. if it came from a meuseum like he claims and isnt a recent made dummy I might have a semi in the future

    Judging from the internet/gunbroker pics, there is no bolt or ejector in it. Since there is a block of steel welded in where the bolt would be, the piston post may have been ground off the bolt carrier, to allow "cocking" of the replica.

    It appears to have been a 3 cut demill, as there is weld in the magwell. If the barrel is removeable, you probably will find welds in the barrel nut pocket.
