Well the replacement Kit form Copes came this week.
Here's part 1 if you missed it.

Roger and his company made good on his promise to send a nice one.

Good: The replacement kit was obviously HAND-PICKED.
The finish is an easy +90%, the wear on the parts is negligable and it's 100% #'s matching.
The face of the charging handle still has most of it's finish and where the parts rub each other, even the light machine marks haven't worn smooth yet.
What look like gouges in the hand guard pic are really just chips in the lacquer. The dark spot is just that. A spot that will clean-up.

My crappy pics don't do this kit's ace condition justice. It looks like one from Bocefus :cool:

-----------------------------------------------------------
Bad: The mag catch is disassembled. Guess all of them are.

---------------------------------------------------------
Ugly: In my excitement to see the kit I dropped the UF stock on the BRAND NEW day bed blanket and got it dirty! :eek:
If I don't get that cleaned up before SHE sees it, things are going to get ugly! :reaper:

-----------------------------------------------------------
Odd Thing of note: The Kit is dated 1977, yet it has the Tube-Type stock.(?????)
I remember AKParts.com having 1975+ kits that were ALL Stamped-Arm.
Need to start a thread on this.

That's an awesome looking kit, even the furniture looks brand new. Be sure to post some pics up when you're done.

It's good to see they made things right. They are definately gonna get my business.
