I just ordered one. According to AIM, they only have a small quantity. Maybe the'll get more, maybe not. The M59/66 supply is still there... so maybe we'll get more of them.

I don't think they'll be like the Albanian in the oddities and differences... meaning, you should be able to use M59/66 parts in the M59 without problems.

ok thanks. i was just wondering were they would stand for being collectible.

Received it last night. Looks pretty nice. The wood is darker, like walnut, with good figure lines. In good shape with a couple dings and one gouge on one side close to the handguard. The metal is about 70% on the blueing. Detail stripped it, and everything internal looks to be in like new condition. The bore looks good, but I haven't wiped it out yet. Should get it all cleaned up tonight.

If they do have a small quantity, and they don't get more, they will be somewhat collectible. If this one cleans up well and works well, I'll definitely want to get another or two. I prefer the ones without the grenade launching stuff.

Thats funny cause I think the grenade add ons look pretty good. Either way this is a nice gun that I am also thinking about getting, if I don't get the M1 Garand.
