    Lois told me that the kits were all done at the same time and they have been all over the map as far as de-mill goes.

    I got one for a Suomi build and 3 for 9MM SuomAK's
    How is that Suomi AK hybrid working out ? I am interested in seeing how it is going to be built. I may use one of my kits for that. I only have three and I will build one as a semi suomi and keep another for extra parts since they really won't be available in the future. My 3rd one, well its still up in the air... I have had a few people want to buy it from me because of the cocking handle/ spring, and the front filler. It seems numerich is out of front fillers. I had to order a new rear filler while they still had some because I do not feel like rebuilding mine.

    I got a new rear filler fom Numerich too the other day.

    May machinist says he'll have it shipped back soon to me. He sleeved the barrel to fit in a 5.45 trunion and I will use the 5.45 bolt to as it is very close to 9mm case size.

    The 5.45 trunion doesn't need to be used, but the stick mag fits in it well and not so well in a 7.62 truinion. See these pics and when I get the barrel back I will show more pics. I will have to send the barrel back as the machinist will be adding a brake to the front to make it leagl as well.

    Nice progress. You are using the original suomi barrel then ? I was sorta thinking an UZI barrel might be best. Its cool the mags fit in the trunnion, it will indeed be interesting to see how it feeds.

    Yes. Also, front filler in great shape. Rear filler torched well but could be rebuilt but easier to just install new one. Flashing seen on tube (or not seen) is how this one came. Must have been a hot, sharp flame or plasma cutter.


    Did I do that?

    HOLY CRAP that thing looks good! If the kit I had gotten looked that good I may have already tried to convert it! I think there was more slag than useable receiver on it...

    I just ordered another and am thinking more seriously about the square tubing idea. I'm not thinking original repro, but more of a hybrid clone one-off. It will look more like a sten than anything else. It may turn into a total mess, but we'll see.

    That's a good catch!

    I may have to order something just to get a couple of these $20.00 beauties.

    CFS sucks. Every kit so far that I ordered had missing parts and its a pain in butt to get them sent to you. Am done with CFS.

    Ordering two Yugo M70 fixed stock kit, might as well add two Suomi kits since the price is so low. The worst case I will use those thick and nice Finish barrels for single shot conversion to fit into my H&R 20ga singleshot shot gun.....should work ok, and @ only $20 each......

    Have fun

    Just an FYI....

    This morning I ordered a fixed stock yugo kit and got the suomi kit to go with it. The person I placed the order with said that 'the boss' said that since they were running so low on the stick mags they were told to stop selling them so they'd have enough for the kits that were going out. Turns out... she doesn't have a stick mag for me. But the boss said that in such a case they could substitute a drum for an extra $15. Long story longer... I just got a suomi kit with a drum for $35.
    ...I'm not tense! Just terribly, terribly alert.
