WHY?

I have spent months restoring mine back to the correct configuration. I had the chance to hand pick mine at AIM. I had to go through 18 crates to find 2 that were good enough to restore. The rebuild quailty is non-existant, and they just threw any part that would fit on them.



There, I 'fixed' it. I know nothing about the quality of these rifles from AIM or the original poster's restoration intentions, hence the word 'may'. This was just a friendly post offering a source for a cleaning rod, not trying to start a debate.

Thanks for the tip about the cleaning rod....

I dont know what I will do with the rifle yet, I am going to wait and see what it is like, then decide.....

Can I ask how much you paid? do they have handpick option? Are these 98 K's?

Thank you in advance

How did you manage to find all the original serialized parts to restore them to their correct configuration?

" I had the chance to hand pick mine at AIM. I had to go through 18 crates to find 2 that were good enough to restore."
That's why buying online is hit or miss, and the handpick doesn't guarantee a good rifle. I understand that paying the, usually, $10.00 fee for a handpick means they grab the top 5 then pick the best one.
If the markings are important to a buyer it's worth it to buy from someone like Dennis @ Empire Arms. It's more expensive but their descriptions can be counted on to be accurate.
