    Default M76 on a Wise Lite Arms receiver

    Well I finally finished this puppy.

    This is a ORF barreled kit built on a WLA reciever. I polished and blued the receiver via blindhoggs recipe the rest is all original finish. Still need to rivet on the scope rail but will do that after this weekend.

    I love the looks these guns!

    It was pretty good over all. The one problem was that it had some pretty deep milling marks on the side that took significant elbow grease to remove. I ended up getting a belt sander to finish it because my sholder was killing me. ;-) Other than that it was mostly plug-n-play. on the bullet guide I counter sunk the rivet since these don't come with a front plate like the ORF receivers do. I didn't want the rivet head sticking out the bottom of the receiver.

    That is really really nice, Makes me hope my order goes through... Century has some "sniper" 8mm but it is a bit pricey. I am looking forward to a range report.
