Ok guys. Lets step up and help this young man aquire what he needs to make this project a success!!!!! Dig around in those spare parts bins and see what you can find that he can use.
No, I contacted Dennis about getting a piece of tubing chambered in 7.62x25 to make a dummy barrel; then he decided to make a generous donation of a barrel, mag, and other parts for my project. He started this thread on his own without me asking; he wants to see this project become a success just as I do.
BTW, he joined gunco way back in '06.
FYI - The drawing on the site is largely based on the Australian F1. Australia destroyed just about all of their examples in the early 90s. Took Sterling mags mounted on top like the old WWII Owens and shared the same grip and a couple small parts with the Australian L1A1 (FAL). Check it out:

This looks like a nice project the last pic on the site looks like something I have seen before. What about using sten parts like the tubing for the receiver. They have a few type of them just make sure you get one that is semi auto.
I will be using a 4130 steel tube upper similar to the STEN and I'll be modeling my bolt after the PPS-43 b/c it is round like the STEN, but I'll made mine a smaller OD. My design has changed a little since that pic, so I'll get a new drawing up soon.
