Really appreciate all of these details/advice. I’ve been aware of the Romy Gs for a while but honestly didn’t know much of their unique background until I started researching this kit specifically. Definitely want to build this kit as true to original as possible and will take my time getting it right. I’ve been wanting to do a parts kit build for a while and pandemic mode finally pushed me over the edge to get the home shop up and running.Beautiful example.
We need to find you a correct 1970's era G stock. The color will be more amber brown/blonde like your hand guards. The stock profile on top resemebles a 1970's era Izzy Russian. The 1980's and later Romanian stocks are almost always darker brown and the top is more curved like the one you have. Importers shipped the majority of the G kits with buttstocks from another kit. Don't sweat it - i a part that can be changed after your build.
FWIW a Flat top A selector would be correct for 1976 - 1979 G rifles. Member ptica posted pictures of a 1976 Md63 deact he has/had that had the flat top A.
Here is a 1977 Md63 deact that was sold in Spain - Flat top A.
Same stock profile correct for the era - just sans the black band. Based on serial number ranges I am convinced G rifles were just pulled in batches from the Md63 production line and modified after.
The third hole is a no no....unless you want to be visited by the ATF boys, steer clear and just go for the look. Here is mine, and I had the same issue you did with my stock, but fortunately a fellow mod stepped in to help out:Thanks man! Def gonna build this one out correctly
