This is really good news. I would love to go no where else than right here to get help with my 1919 build. I am getting very excited. On another note, the guy on the other board is selling kits for $365 + $20 shipping I believe. Then there are the select kits which are $380 I think plus shipping. IMO, I would get the regular kit. I got one of both and they are basically the same, except the select has most of the finish left. Most reparkerize their guns anyways so I would go with the cheaper if I had to do it again. If I were you guys, I would definitely buy your kit NOW! There is only one or two other companies that still have the Izzy kits, and they are quite a bit more expensive than what I have quoted. These kits will be gone soon, I guarantee it. Long before any of the AK kits dry up.
Actually the regular kit price is $325 and select are $385. We received a new shipment and were able to save a few bucks. I agree that you might be just as well off with the regular kits.
