It's just a Mod 63 build from AoA. Not a G kit. The wood is craptastic, delaminating and looks like it went through a few wars and then was left outside for 20 years. I really wasn't going for that much of a BFPU look but we'll see down the road. I may have to refinish the wood.

Nope, MD. 63. Nice build, for the Romy you should do a BFPU.

We had to punch out the pins and push the FSB up a good 1/8" or so and drill the FSB pin holes. It must have been a Monday morning or Friday afternoon assembly. The barrel pushed in and out really nice so they did a good job with the barrel/trunnion mating.
Nice looking build. Is the FSB not being in the correct location a common occurance with the AoA headspaced kits. I believe mine has the same issue.
