    Hogue grips help also.

    But this is just honey stuff.

    My preference and priority is the sa85mP

    P9m and LS

    And the HD18 and surplus we have.

    Assuming that the barrel length is going to be the same as the AMD-65, it would be really sweet if they had AMD-65 rear trunnions. You could use some kind of plug to fill the void.

    The rear trunion is there but the male end buttstock is not there and on the male it is plugged up and made as an access point for a sling.

    A typical deact AK55

    Lpo50 flame throwers

    Dry run on AK parts

    I'm hoping AK55 parts kits are possible.

    Flamethrower would just be so cool to have, just so damn dangerous. I wonder about the chemicals used in these and how good the fittings are, as well as the range.

    It's really amazing that people keep deviating from the norms like using casted parts for such critical areas of the pistol

    Is it though? I can tell you right now what the thought process is. "Hey boss. Accounting says it's cheaper to use these parts." "Do it"

    If you sell enough barely passable cheap garbage, it'll still result in profit. People who use cars and guns to their mechanical limit will notice flaws much sooner than folks who use them casually or occasionally. It's up to the company to know who their target market is and how they buy. Selling cheap garbo is often pretty easy "hey its cheap, if it breaks buy another" but sometimes it's trickier for the middle and tough for the high end crowds. Quality costs. There's no way around it, but there's definitely a point of diminishing returns and to make up for that, sometimes you get namebrandism and fanboys. Hi-point, Glock and H&K. All well established names at very different price points and quality.

    Or... it could be taking risks to try to improve on a design. Polymer AR lowers get beaten to death over time, but it's getting use out of it in the meantime that might make it worthwhile. I had a 9mm AR that came with an older polymer lower that you could squeeze the magwell and it would flex. Damn thing worked though. Though with metal it's hard to beat established norms and maintain some form of affordability. There was a company that had magnesium lowers for lightweight builds but it wasn't easy to duracoat, ceracoat, or parkerize them, apparently. It's risky to deviate sometimes.

    My money is on "cheap" though. But it's not a lot of money.

    I prefer to learn from other people's mistakes whenever possible and keep the rocks downrange. Though yeah learning firsthand is a good way too and unavoidable since circumstances change all the time. It makes for good stories too.

    Super looking forward to seeing this venture bear fruit. You're making better progress than I am for sure lol

Rebuilding was done in the 1970s and 1980s and I asked the Chief Engineers why wasn't the wood made unique like the East Germans did with theirs, and he said that from his research, the shellac varnish setup help up a bit better as most of the rifles are used by the ceremonial and honor guards and they are outside quite a bit in all types of weather.
    The Hungarian developed one didn't hold up better but was more durable and less subject to wear and tear unlike the Russian style setup for the furniture, it's just the Russian looked nicer and more presentable.

    They look messy but the finish is good and I am sending them to the refinishing people to check it out. I found well over 600 of them that are definite Hungarian rebuilds with 02 everywhere indicating FEG rebuilt it but for anyone knowing, I can't find any FEG made receivers, just FEG barrels, springs, bolts, and little stuff.


    Attachment 270959

    add me to the unofficial buy list for these ........ also please be careful about refinishing/fixing up these things as us collectors are willing to pay more for something that is original but maybe a bit beat up vs something that has been messed with!
    Again thanks for all your hard work keeping us in the loop!!!

    I know the SKS are c and R eligible.

    And they are a but more. But I will ask that they don't get refinished.

    Looking at them, it's just some bluing.



    Look..I get it about being cheap....

    I've learned that lesson the hard way with stuff from Autozone for my truck...

    I'm OEM dealer wholesale now..no matter what.


    All I am saying is look at companies cutting corners and stacking it cheap to keep prices down..

    You get what you pay for...

    Fég will never go that way ....the people there are good and they know it that quality is important.

    Sorry it's taking so long but it's almost there.
    The goal is like 100 yards away from a 4k yard cross country fun run.

    They have different calibers and have supplied some to various orgs but they are stupid expensive, last one I saw was like 8000 to 12000 a piece with magazines costing almost 300 a piece depending on caliber.

    they make a heavy caliber also.

    Pretty cool but just a pretty shiny penny also.
