    Thanks for sharing
    nice price with a barrel.

    All removable parts from inside the receiver (rails, etc) are included.
    That sounds like a good thing, is it?


    Chamber end of the receiver is not included.
    Is this common for these kits or is it needed? Sounds like something that's needed

    Hard to tell from the pics. Does it come with the trunnion u piece, end piece and pin ( no big deal as can be found for $40). Is the receiver demilled through the square trunnion holes or does it have them intact. Please let me know when you receive your kit. thanks, willie
    PS a while back I picked up some demilled barrel ends for $15 ( barrel was torched). Had some Sarco swede 8x63 barrels (3@$90?) and adapted and cut off the old chamber and reamed to 8x57 and re profiled the barrel NEW barrel for $45 less my machine work.

    Just got the kit in the mail, and laid everything out. here it is:



    Havent inventoried every piece yet, but the one big thing im missing? The barrel. I just emailed CFS and pointed this out, so hopefully its just a simple "whoops, sorry about that, its on its way," Ill keep you all posted....

    ....Which is exactly what they said. Got an email this morning saying it was on the way.

    Looks like everything is there (except the barrel as you noted). You even got a receiver stub with the trunnion section intact! A rear receiver section and front barrel bearing and you're ready to build. I've got a German BNZ coded rear receiver section that was torch cut in two places that someone rewelded...sort of. Inquire if interested.

    Any German marked parts?

    Haven't scrutinized the parts yet, still need to clean the gallons of cosmo off of everything. i havent seen any german marked parts, looks to be all Yugo tho.

    I did play with the bipod and it is pretty much new looking under the tons of grease on it, fits great on the shroud, as it should anyhow. Torch cut righ on the end of the shroud, right through the bushing. front site is dissasembled and in the plastic bag. Top cover is in great condition, as is feed tray, dust cover, and most everything else. Picked up a ton of degreaser today at work, going to spend the afternoon (maybe?) cleaning and inventorying everything else.

    Didn't mention originally, but when I placed the order, I had the billing address and shipping address different. They sent the pkg to the billing address...where I no longer live. I called and Magnus at CFS contacted UPS and had the shipment rerouted to 29 palms. had to get all the way to San Diego first, but a few days later than planned it made it here. Just got another email saying the barrel that was missing from the kit is being shipped out....to the wrong address again. I called and was told to call back tomorrow when Magnus would be back. hopefully they can intercept it, so its not sitting on a doorstep 200 miles away :P

    What those parts can become with some time, patience, and lots of elbow grease.....

    soakin the parts in a degreaser right now, let it do some of the elbow work for me while i have a few beers and sleep. Was lookin at the recuperator, and its got "bpr" stamped on it. is that german or yugo marking? The bipod is the only german WW2 marked piece i got in the kit. but it looks like it was made yesterday.
