Conversions can be difficult, so keep in mind you may have to ?reverse engineer? something.Originally Posted by archer2
I say go for it. You have to keep the manufacturer markings, importer markings, serial number, etc. intact on the receiver. If this were a Saiga, you would simply take a stamp set of the proper size & stamp the info at another location on the rec to the appropriate depth. The stamp info is covered in other subjects, so use the search feature to dig up that info if you need to do it.
I?m not familiar with the Maadi. If the buttstock is a US-built part, you should get another part to replace the US part you?ll lose when converting. Assuming this rifle falls under the 922 parts-count quota nonsense.
Slant-cut receivers. I can say that any receiver can be cut to use the stock mounting frames (aka tang or rear trunion). It is best to hand-fit the frame to the receiver and then mark the holes, drill and rivet. McMaster-Carr 5/32? rivets will work perfectly.
