    Default Are the Yugo Centerfire kits worth buying ?

    Here's a link to the kit in question . http://www.centerfiresystems.com/ind...OD&ProdID=1010

    Is it possible to do a home build using basic tools or is this something requiring a lathe ?

    First, This M53 or MG42 kit did not come with receiver parts, as home build with kit, No way, you need a US build semi-receiver

    I ordered one kit, was not to bad. They are ALOT of work. You need to find a cut receiver (hard to find) and a cam section (even harder to find) and weld them together. I hear the cost of a build is $1200 to 1500.

    I have done alot of research and I am missing the front barrel section (which I am trying to buy on a weaponeer.net).

    I stilll have many hours of work. The best info is at http://www.panzer46.net/mg42board/

    Good luck if you try.

    Coldsteel, and Wiselite Arms.
    You'll need the replacement barrel bushing that Wiselite sells for $125.00
    Personally, I'm going with Wiselite-they say they'll be ready in Feb., pending batf approval.
    Coldsteel says Jan., but I've heard nothing more on this, other than what is on their site.
    The Wiselite sections will be a true .100 thickness. They will also include the camming section, and as such, will be 3" longer than the brp type. They are designed to mate up with the cut jacket.
    No news of price yet.
    Most of the yugo sets have the front bushings cut through, so, like stated above, one of those is needed-they are truely finely machined. A must.
    Other than that, that's all I can give you as far as info.
    But, look for some developments in late Jan. and during Feb. Or, so they say, anyway.
