    Here are some pics of the kits and some closeups of the underfolders. I wish I knew what country the underfolder in the second kit is from.

    Kit #2


    closeup of underfolder in kit #2 this almost reminds me of a chinese underfolder - but then again the receiver doesn't look thick enough to be chinese. Any ideas?


    kit #1 this is a nice kit with all numbers matching


    rear underfolder trunnion from kit #1


    notice the straight backside of the trunnion area where the one in kit #2 was curved slightly.


    some differences in the stocks. Looking at the stocks - I don't think they both came from poland, unless one is a newer style - does anyone know?

    Mike, missed these pictures and ask to see them in the other thread...sorry. Both of my sets of wood look very similar to yours. Is it not Polish? If not, what would you expect it to be. Have any of you guys dealt with Lois at CFS replacing certain pieces(rear trunnion) because they were cut up, or banged up too badly? I'm hoping maybe that she can get me one so that I can keep one of the kits. 762, are your Polish kits all from Global? Global's website says they are all sold out of Polish kits, so I'll have to check with Sportsman Guide and FAC. FAC's is $159, so I'm more inclined to go with them based on the price. What experience have you guys had with their kits?

    I would feel comfortable to say that the wood with my first kit is polish and that the wood is in decent shape. Of course my first kit is all numbers matching. I'm not saying the wood in my second kit isn't polish just that it doesn't seem to be from the same gun. The lower handguard doesn't fit the receiver chunk that is still attached to the front trunnion of kit #2 and the gas tube of kit #2 is going to need to be fitted where the gas tube in kit #1 fits perfect. I tried to call Lois this afternoon and left a voice mail message. So can't help you there. But past experience with Lois has always been positive and she did help make it right for me by helping me to get some wood replaced on an AMD63 kit I had bought through her when centerfire was first offering the amd63 kits. One good thing with sportsmansguide is that being a member of the buyers club gets you the discounted price, plus if you're not already a member when you join SG usually throws in free shipping on that order. Plus there are usually coupons that can be used. so the total price is lower than expected.

    Here is a link if you need it http://www.sportsmansguide.com/cb/cb.asp?a=91958 I am thinking the FAC kits are global trades kits also, but am not sure.

    also for comparison here is the kit I got through SG.

    Nice wood on this and looks perfect.


    How it was packaged and this was inside a carboard box.

    BTW I found out that the underfolder in kit #2 is from a Chinese Type 56-1. So I am wondering how kit #2 could be considered a Polish kit????? Did the chinese and polish share parts, if so this is the first I've heard of it.

    I checked their website and it said they were all sold out! So, I'm looking into FAC and Sportsmanguide

    It's easy Winn, the washing machines don't complain!! But if I take a picture on my wife's flowery table cloth she might not like that to well, ha ha. Plus I didn't want to clear a couple of projects off my work bench for a photo op. Besides as long as I don't put the parts in the washing machine...

    Got 3 of these kits. All had rear folder trunnion cut at or behind first rivet. All had front trunnion cut also, although 1 was kind of just skimmed. Beyond that they are really in poor shape. Whomever demilled these in Poland needs to be slapped! I can repaint for finish wear, but kind of hard to fix trunnions like that!

    Definetly worth the extra $40 to get the Polish kits somewhere else.
