    Default Anyone mill a VZ58 rear 3/4?

    Hi, I am really wanting to do a home build VZ58 and since I can not find any demil reciever stubs to reweld I was thinking of machining out the rest of the reciever and weld to the original stub. I did a search and found some old threads with people talking about blueprints but those folks either didn't respond to my PMs or are banned. If anyone out there can help point me in a direction to buy plans or has done this please let me know. (or if I missed a thread) Thank you in advance.

    Get a hold of Prexis Sten and see if he sells the plans for his 80% receiver.

    Or check through this site and see if the info is on there

    I have plans from a guy in canada. think its the gunnery range? Will look later. I milled one out of aluminum from his plans then sent the corrections (minor) I found back to him so you should be good to go.

    No I don't have any plans on my site, just welded those parts together and fit them into place. Ugly, and certainly not museum quality, but she works!!! Forgot I have the vids of the wifey and stepson shooting them

    The last activity on here by DaveGP was 19 months ago !!! I could not find him on gunbroker.com.

    His VZ-58 plans are very nice. I got mine years ago from him.

    I wonder if perhaps the rear 3/4 of the VZ-58 could be made from thick flat stock SAE 4130 CMS ( 5/16 x 1.5 inch stock sides, 1.25 x .053 inch bottom) rather like the milled AK weld pack technique. I approximated the bar stock from the plans.

    A good original front chunk (barrel trunion) should be used ie one that still has the locking recesses intact. First class welding skills would be needed.
