    At last - a companion for my Y stamp Intrac

    Found another Y stamp Intrac and won. Muzzle cap is still welded on. Comes with the Egyptian sling and cleaning kit. Cleaning rod is missing but I can get one. Debanning will commence upon receipt.

    Re: At last - a companion for my Y stamp Intrac

    I think my eyes are safe. I'm one of the ones teaching others firearms safety.

    I think the "new to me" Maadi is a 1993 dated one. I know the serial is in the 53,000 range. It cost me about 3439.85 Egyptian Pounds shipped.

    I shot the Y stamp Intrac I currently possess last weekend.



    I bought this one in August of 1994 - one month before the ban kicked in. It was a weird one because the muzzle cap was never welded on. Serial in the 54,000 range. The FSB was badly canted though - Wayne at Texas River Armory fixed it earlier this year.





    The bayonet lug still needs one more pass with the welder and more filing to finish building the lug up - that is why it is still "white" on the bottom. The mag is an Egyptian from Croatia with a US follower.



    On the inbound rifle I will probably just have Wayne change out the gas block for an Egyptian one with a lug to get the bayonet lug. I'll get the cap off and change out the gas piston and FCG before I hand it to him. I've thought about using a "Brown Romanian" grip from Ronin for 922r. The "new to me" Maadi might arrive this coming weekend.

    It sure is nice to have Egyptian parts available to deban these rifles.

    Re: At last - a companion for my Y stamp Intrac

    I got mine for $330 circa 1995 looking identical to yours in the top picture.

    In a burst of AWB expiry madness, I converted it to AKMS configuration using a drill press, Polish UF stock assembly, a 2# hammer and somewhat awkward rivet tools from Boeing surplus. (I used the trunnion as a jig for making the holes for the stock.) With Z-Recto furniture, it does look a lot like the 1972 on Tantal's site.

    I wish I'd bought two or three, but that was a big buy for me at the time.

    Herbae - Recall that FN upper you sold me a year ago?







    FFL called today - after a very slow shipping ride the Maadi has arrived! I can't make time to pick it up until this weekend though.

    Re: At last - a companion for my Y stamp Intrac

    Sometimes gambling on gunbroker auctions with crappy cell phone pics can pan out.

    As received...



    It came with a nice East German mag. East German and Chinese mags were the most common when these rifles were sold new. The rifle would have come with a 5 rounder from the factory.


    Serial is just over 1000 numbers older that my other Intrac dated 94.



    Pretty straight for a Maadi:



    Under this screw and large washer is a square hole for a pistol grip nut:


    If this thing was fired more than 200 rounds since being originally assembled it would surprise me:





    Milled steel FCG. The Egyptians just ground down the military parts to function semi. Their spring retailer is unique - installed through the mag well.








    The factory left the plunger depressed when they welded the cap on. Might need a new spring. Thankfully the previous owner fired non-corrosive ammo since they didn't clean it after firing and the cap covered an area that would rust. There was a lot of corrosive ammo on the market when these rifles were first sold.:



    You can see here that the thumbhole is 2" longer than the military stock:



    As I stated and after photos with her long lost sister, less than 24 hours in my possesion the debanning commenced:




    THREADS! :









    She is with the 'smith now to get this installed. I could have probably lived without bayonet capability, but it just seems wrong not to restore her to full glory:
