    For Sale: ZB-39 kit wih IMA dummy receiver.

    Got this cobbled together, but the barrel locking nut will not go home, with barrel in place. Modifying a Bren locking lever would be the wiser and safer thing to do.

    Aukland,

    You may be better off starting a new thread, under the semi auto section. This thread is pretty old. And Project Guns, even though the web site was still up last time I looked in 2020,...

    So what country will these be sold in? I hate and resent the fact U.S. officials no longer let barrels into the country. Absolutely arbitrary rulings. Otherwise, we might very well have some semi...

    Old MREs

    They drop their nutritional value greatly after 10 years, but as long as the packaging is still intact, I have had MREs from the mid 80's with no ill effect. Some of the items turn bland and...

    I think I would just go with the coil cuts. Springs are pretty easy to replace, but sometimes, finding them is the trick.
