    Default Experimentation complete..mostly.

    So i took a yugo milled front, destroyed the trunnion through trial and error, got a Romy trunnion on GB for $20, put the barrel assy in the trunnion, and put the rest together on a tapco flat with tapco guts (fcg), and a Romy 65 underfolder and trunnion. All said and done, total cost was just shy of $190. Still need to ram the barrel pin in, put a few more screws in it, but with a little grinding and tweaking, i got it all together. need to do some minor filing and pinging here and there, but all moving parts seem to be in good working order so far. Ill let everyone know how it shoots. Or my spouse will post my funeral arrangement info on here, depending on how it goes

    I went the reweld route with my apex front end. Nice build, thought about making mine stamped, but being that I have no sheetmetal experience I figured I'd just make it milled...

    My rear sight leaf was bent like yours is, I just took it out and flattened it with a hammer and an anvil. I figure that it'll at least be closer to right.

    Just took this fella and the other G out today for a test run.. After avoiding several park rangers and other government official types, finally got to put a few rounds downrange. Romy G was sweeeeet. Fed, fired, ejected great. The Yugo/Romy mix would hand feed fine, shoot great, then jam the next round into the trunnion. think I might need to either do some work on the rails, or just try a bullet guide.

    I got a few videos on my buddies camera, once he sends em to me ill put em up.

    Again, wouldn't have been able to do any of this without the vast amount of tutorials, guides, and troubleshooting help from everyone here! Thanks again to everyone!

    Very cool. You just opened some ideas up for me.
    I have the back half of what I need for a romy kit and the front half of what I need for a yugo build. I was wondering how much I would need to spend to complete one of these. Now looks like I can just combine them. This is very cool. I need about $40 worth of parts to finish.
    Thanks for the post!!!

    Was it jamming the round or was the bolt jamming against the round?

    Doesn't yours have a bullet guide?

    I would say the bolt was jamming against the round? It would fire, eject the spent shell, then come back and stop. couldve been hitting the magazine, but when it would jam, id just rack it back and let it go, and itd go forward with a fresh round, no problem, pull the trigger, boom, spent casing goes flaying, bolt carrier stops on new round. repeat. ill have to look at where the mag was sitting maybe too.
