Frome everything I've heard they are everything you want in a weapon. Accurate, reliable, balanced, ergonomic etc etc except a bitch to get spare parts for.

yes, good rifles, just impossible to get parts for

I agree with the part issue I guess I will deal with that problem if it ever comes up. But so far so good.

Not that I know of, that doesn't mean anything though.

Great rifles... Enjoy.

Having owned an AR100 I can tell you that replacement parts will be a Mofo. Little does break on them, but if it does, your screwed.

IMHO - Ditch it for as much as you can get, and get a replacement AR-15

There are virtually no US resident parts available, and only a very few of the Daewoo parts can be interchanged with AR-15 parts (I sold mine 1 year prior to the end of the ban for $1200 - no way to get that now!)

I have had 2 great rifles nothing wrong with them just wanted something else at the time and traded them

Yeah, well parts are the issue. Actually, parts are the only issue. Every once in awhile someone sells parts on Egay, sometimes on Sturmgewehr. When I find them, I buy them. Now have just about everything I might need. Well, almost.

My K2 is the last semi I will ever sell. It goes bang every time. No exceptions. The stock hammer spring was too weak for some of my SA, so I replaced it with the standard M16 spring - but this isn't a knock on the gun.

Undeveloped, it has died on the vine - a historical footnote. No rails, no flattops, no modular anything - no fault of the gun, just a victim of circumstances.

Won't an AR trigger group drop right in? IIRC, you have to use all the AR parts or it won't work right.

That's half of the parts that might break right there. Find a firing pin and you should be good to go for spares.

Spare bolt? and the firing pin IIRC is different.
