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.

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.

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.
