    Thanks. I called global and they still have some left so I ordered 2 kits and some other goodies. Glad I will be getting a couple of nice kits.

    sniper69,

    What happened is that someone in the polish army got a chinese u-folder somehow.
    When they cut the weapons up, they did not pull the chinese gun out from the polish ones. Centerfire did not know to check because they all came from poland.
    You can tell that it is a chinese barrel because it will be smaller diameter then the polish.
    If the front trunion is not damaged then you really made out on the chinese gun.

    Now, for the pictures that I have seen in this thread, the barrel's where not rusty.
    What was rusty was the slant brake.

    The demilled trunions is what makes these kits useless IMHO.
    I can deal with some rust. I can deal with missing 1 rivet out of the rear trunion.
    But I can't deal with the front trunion being cut.

    I am really glad I did not buy any of these kits.

    To whomever purchased the kit with the laminated grip, I would check the dates on the trunion. Good chance you got a russian kit instead of polish

    DrugRunR,
    The chinese underfolder came with a polish barrel dated 1979 on the front trunnion with the polish markings. The laminated pistol grip was in with this kit also. Everything was a hodge podge from different guns and nothing matched in this kit. This kit was sent back to CFS and ups delivered it back to them on Friday. The other kit was all numbers matching and that one was not returned. I wish I could of scored a chinese barrel still in the trunnion - but I'm not that lucky, lol.

    I guess it is possible that it was a field repaired gun but I don't think so.
    I suspect that someone at CFS just tossed some stuff in a box.


    I would really of liked a picture of the laminated grip.

    Here is a pic that I took the same day I took the other pics I posted earlier. I didn't post this one originally - but this is the only one I have with the laminated grip in the picture.

I will keep it in it's worn look as it gives it some class. Ktis are kits and I have been spoiled by the mint ones in the past but getting by the problems is part of the fun and in the end it will all work out. A bit more work but what the hell-that's why I build them...
    I like the way you think. For $119.00 I wouldn't expect much...I would just be glad that kits are still available. If you ever had to buy a bolt and carrier or main carrier spring, $119.00 seems like a steal. The parts alone add up to way more than that. If too many people return the not so perfect kits, the companies may find it more profitable to part them out and sell individual pieces. Then we would really be out of luck.
    I like the idea of finishing them as-is....in the rough....then my poor workmanship isn't so obvious.

    Now that ebay has pulled the plug it does not seem like there is any where to go in the secondary market. Gunbroker.com does not seem to have much. Is there another auction site up that is worth the time? Jack

    Worth the time, I doubt it. There was another one that a few people found that thought might be the next big site in a few....years maybe. I think it is called...can't remember now, but it is a new auction site. A few of us were registering just in case some day it takes off.

    I posted on another thread, auctions still taking place on fleabay for gun parts..mostly what I saw was SKS barrels and stocks though.

    yeah.... gunstuff has the polish kits at 159.00.

    if you missed out on the good global ones this might be a shot at getting one still???
    I got one from global a while back, and was pretty happy with the quality.
