    Nope,..not at all. Considering we had to give them away to get rid of them.

    i bought a kit from akron armory. it was as advertised. they are surplus. so there is going to be paint worn off and light dings in the stocks and forearms. but a new set of furnature is cheap. your buying the steel, not the plastic. plus you have to buy compliance parts also so no matter what you still have to replace some items.

    Thanks Handy,

    Yeah,..exterior wear is not important, ....BUT I have seen reports (FAL Files) where some of these kits were shipped by a "vendor" that either OVERLOOKED or considered UNIMPORTANT the pitting that was in the bore.

    More than ONE kit was involved.

    Pitted bores?...not MY cup of tea.
