    It is supposed to arrive tomorrow but I may have a problem. This is supposed to be my anniversary gift which is still two months away and the wife is planning on hiding it when it arrives. I expect I can talk her out of it but who knows.

    She let me have it. I will try to get pics up this weekend. I like it. Stock detaches, original magazine fits and locks but is a little looser than the fake one. Exterior all appears to be steel. Interior bolt and charging handle is soft metal. Not sure yet on barrel. Screws and other trim is molded as part of the receiver. Original bayonet fits perfectly. Sling came today also so it’s complete. Charging handle comes out so it might accept an original.

    'Exterior all appears to be steel'. I think you will find the reciever is mazakicon. You can confirm this by putting a
    Magnet on it. It will not sick......

    Looks can be deceiving, magnet doesn't stick to any of it.

    Here are the pics. It doesn't show in the photos but on the bottom of the magazine well, it does say DENIX. It's pretty small.

    Very interesting, not a bad repro, perfectly good for display or film work etc.

    So, is there a "proper" way to attach the sling in this model? I have seen at least 2 different ways to attach the sling to the rear "t" stock....
    Is one right or wrong, was it a matter of personal choice?

    I did an image search and that was the connection I found. Can't figure out what else the round hole is for. I thought maybe your thumb or other finger but after trying it decided it was probably a very good way to lose your thumb or other finger.
