Centerfiresystems is offering these kits as an add on with purchase of another kit for only 20.00, do you guys know what could be done with these kits or are they just good for macking up a dummy gun? Interested in the possibilities.

yea i bought 2 more ak kits from center fire and bought 2 suomi kits, im just going to weld my receivers back together and try to see what rethreading can be done to it. since the slag sorta puddled up in some of the threading.

Looks very salvageable though. hey for 19.99 you cant go wrong!

Welding those receivers back together is a one way ticket to prison. You need to use a receiver that the origonal bolt will not fit in. Go over to weaponeer.com cause they have a section devoted to making these semi auto and the conversion takes a lot of work. The insides are almost nothing like what was in there. Many things need to be done to make the ATF happy.

Beware. Owning both the parts kit and a FA reciver can be called "intent". If somebody want to get rig of a set or 2 get hold of me.

I should clarify. I was implying a completed milled FA receiver. ATF doenst care if its not together just if all the parts are there to make it go bang.

I'd love to attempt to build a semi version. Do you still have any more? The cost might make it more effective than trying to build a semi thompson.

Definately cheaper than a Tommy. Plus the 71 rnd drums are $30 a piece! I think prexis does both the semi and full.

Ah, OMP, i thought you had a couple that you were willing to get rid of. I must have been pretty tired last night.... Anyways, I think it would be an interesting conversion. It seems like alot of work, though. I"m sure machining wouldn't be too hard, though if you were really dedicated.

$14.99 for 71rd Suomi drums from Centerfire.

Suomi+Cross country ski's=original biathalon.

WHy couldn't you just use a tube that fits inside the ORIGINAL reciever pieces, weld the pieces to this tube and fill in the gaps, you now have a reciever that is smaller in diameter and won't fit the original bolt......

hhmm, That may work, I dont know what the legalities issues are with that though.


I may have to pick up some more drums from centerfire. Thats darn cheap.

That would work. They just want you to not be able to swap things out that would make it F/A. That is, origional parts. So the origional bolt cant be put back. Plus you need to machine off the feed lips on the bolt as well.

I got a couple of sten mk3 kits. I'm currently waiting for someone to make a legal semi-auto kit for it . (which replaces everything ...).
