Great news! I have one kit left, but need to get the receiver. Should be an easy build as it has the original barrel, and I want the original very thinning finish to remain.

Sending my kit out today, but can't find your shipping address. Can you post it here, or shoot it to me in a PM please, thanks.

Hey guys, quick update. I believe I mistakenly wrote fill in the G with red. Can you please make it orange like it should be? Thanks!

James,got your kit in and made note of the color change.thanks man!
Awesome! I dropped another MO in the mail today, so just give me a shout when its done for the balance. Sorry about the mistake in the color change, and I have no idea why I thought the G was red.

Now that I can post again, do you guys think my kit was built at some point? Or maybe started to be built? Also, the barrel looked original to me, but you said it might have been changed...was this the case?

Thanks, I was just curious. Initially, I thought it might have been built, but others did not think so. I'm guessing that whoever built it was not good at it.

I just wanted to let you guys know that I got the rifle, and am very pleased! The fit and finish is perfect, and thank you for fixing the canted front sight. I'd love to know the story on that one. I switched out the stock for a more correct one, so that's why it looks different. Thanks again for the excellent work!

I may not be a fan of the crutch folder, but that thing is just too cool! Post your results after a range sessions please!

Definite interest in that DMR. What optic are you using on the example you posted?

I was thinking of the DMR type rifle that 2Rivers is playing around with. I do like the scopes they have in the pictures, and the reticles are good using a standard SVD style we're all familiar with, but due to the limitations of the 7.62x39, I'm thinking another type of scope like the one I linked to "might" be a better choice.

Looking at several different scopes now. I'm going to go with a smaller one as I have no ability to shoot beyond 300M due to my range limitations. I'm going to try and stay with something calibrated for 7.62x39. looking at this one now:

I really like this one as well:

This one has the capability to go beyond 400M if I ever get the chance, and its in stock.

If you’re good with 6x, I’d recommend this 6x42 with the focus feature (there are several similar models). It’s not that much more $ and the light-gathering capability is superior to the x24 version.

I can always upgrade the scope if needed, but my thoughts tend toward testing this in a shorter range DMR setup with a smaller scope for less bulk and lighter weight. As much as I want to get a larger scope, longer distances are wasted on me at my range since I can get only 300M.

Will the new made Polish 7.62x39 barrels work with the milled Tortort milled receivers?
