Matthews went with 1-1/4"x.120 wall seamless 4130 chrome-moly tubing. I went with 1.5" tubing and decided to go for a more suomi type build. I haven't been able to work on it much lately but I've managed to get the magwell hole in the receiver done and the ejector hole roughed out since I last posted.

Thanks Muttman, I'm goning to get an air die grinder to finish the ejector port as I keep running through dremmel bits at an alarming rate and its an excuse to get a new tool.

Who currently has Suomi kits?

I gained interest in this project recently. I have the first and last copies of the articles but need 2 and 3. Can anybody help me out?

The kits seem to have dried up a little since the article came out. I got my kits from Copes and they no longer show them on their web site. They are for sale on gunbroker, but go for around $100.

I have all three articles on the suomi build. I'll see if I can get them on here some how as others have asked also. Probably not today though as I'm getting all the goose hunting stuff out for the opener on monday. Its a neat little project so far. I haven't had any time in the past month to work on my build. The bolt is by far the hardest part of this build so far, but thats just part of the fun.
