I just ordered one of the battle field kits for $289. plus a barrel on sale.for.$79.00 $20. Shipped. It is from AoA I asked for an early model if possible and also one they might find with some trench art. The guy was cool as hell and no up charge as I didn't ask for a specific year. 1st time buyer from them and I can't wait for my newest build. It's going in to a N.O.S. A.T.M. milled receiver. I'm going to sell or trade the trunions........if anyone interested. This should look bad add when finished!

That's where my kit came from only it was the $269.00 kit. Had three matching SNs on the front trunnion, the bolt carrier and the gas tub. Shipping was great, only 5 days, if I remember correctly.

I've sold several things on GB but I've only bought a carrier cover from there.

Thanks. That's the only bayonet I have. Need a couple more of those as well as a few mags.

Looks good! I went the same route as you, romy underfolder from them on a childers receiver but I used a romy barrel for mine. I wanted to keep it as Romanian as possible.

Thanks and I understand. Price is what did me in. Plus I really like Faxon barrels. If there is another build in my future I will go original. Built a Russian 103 that is as close to original as I could get.

Why don't you use one of the m+m imported romanian barrels since you have a romy kit? Build looks great though

Why do they offer 18” barrels in 762? Is it for a specific variant? I don’t think there is any ballistic advantage for 18” in 762?

Finished. Runs great. Did not refinish. Might swap-out the grip for a cleaner look.

Thanks. They were pretty rough. Was able to save the trench art and noticed that the lower handguard/grip had a serial number and appears to be 4099 like the other parts at least that's what I'm calling it.
