    Early MAADI Barreled Trunnion

    Digging through boxes today and ran across this early MAADI Barreled Trunnion. Very early built with Tula parts.

    You can see the trunnion has a Tula forging code

    Plan to fill in the missing parts with Tula made items. This was in a PLO kit.
    Raised in New Mexico, where the Hell else do you sneak out in the backyard and shoot off an Atom Bomb or three, instead of a firecracker ...

    How much? 1973 year production with star of David, It could have been captured by the israelis during Yom Kippur war 1973 or PLO rifle captured during Lebanon war 1982

    Those scribbles next to the star of David - serial number translation?

    Likely an Israeli serial number that is completely unrelated to the original serial.
    Want to buy:
    1966 East German AKM kit
    TYPE 1 kit
    North Korean kit
    Serbian M76 sniper vest (M-99 A3)


    If I was not on some government watch list, I'd be insulted.

    It translates to the markings on the trunnion. One digit is questionable.

    Where might I find these “boxes” you dig though?

    So
    Is this similar to the one weaponmark Frank built like two years ago or so with Russian and Egyptian markings?

    Yes, it is similar.

    70's Tula made Maadi.

    Expensive barrel. Might be better on an Rguns kit.

    I would argue the opposite.

    A "mid production" (1966-73) Tula is pretty common in comparison.

    Many of the PLO barrels were pretty rough anyway.
