    Post 1979 Romy G completed!!

    Well, Finally got it done. Started this a couple months back. Read everything I could in these forums and at Akfiles. Bought all the compliance parts. Took my time and everything turned out great. Completed it an hour ago and took her out to my berm. Ran 20 rounds through it and she cycled flawlessly. Here are a few pics from start to finish.

    Pic of the kit I saw on the net.


    Pic when it arrived at my house and I put it together a bit.


    Demilled


    And completed




    Thanks again for all the help guys, could have never done this without you all.

    Need to build my AMD 65 as soon as Nodaspud has more receivers.

    Yes that came out real nice.
    I wonder if the future will hold a good price for original wood on our Romys.
    Seems were all in a rush to re finish the wood on them.
    I hate working on that damn wood anyway. Think I will do some builds and leave em like is.
    I hate underfolders too. I pretty much hate every friggen thing today. Even my bitchen old lady. Bitch Bitch bitch.

    Thanks for all the comments guys. I plan to build up an AMD 65 with a Romy barrel. I already have repopulated the barrel with the AMD parts and have most of the compliance parts. Going to use a full length gas tube and piston. Plan to bead blast the AMD and Gunkote. Think I might Park the the Romy. Been looking at an M70...oh crap, here I go again....lol The wood was simple; spray on stripper, clean it up with some steal wool, left all the nicks and dings in it, spray on lacquer, done.
