Sounds like all you need is compliance parts.

Id go with a US piston and slant brake for the 2 remaining compliance parts. I like the original romy pistol grip.

Kit, gas piston, rivets, and slant break (USmade) all came yesterday.. by 10:30 pm had kit ready to go back together.. need receiver, should be at my FFLs today or tomorrow.. Kit looks BRAN'NEW!! barrel pin came out with a few smacks from a 3# hammer... Milled off rivet heads both trunions in my Smithy Midas 1220..works slick.. faced off a short piece of old Mauser 8mm barrel for a pusher to remove barrel.. and the copper pad for the barrel rear only cost me 3cents.. barrel came loose with a loud crack.. guess I'll change out the gas piston next.. will keep you'sns updated...

Got 'er all together this evening.. took it out on the back porch and fired about six rounds into the dirt berm behind the house.. (No one lives within three miles, only BLM ground and a ranch).. If I don't work tomorrow, I'll set up a target and try her out..
