It is a Romanian with OOW receiver built with drive screws. I used #8 on the upper front and rear trunions and #10 on the front lower trunion. I used matte black AlumaHyde on the metal.

I cut off the forward pistol grip and reshaped the lower handguard. I stripped and bleached the wood and used Minwax Polyshade Bombay Mahogany Satin on the wood.

Yes, I did.

I believe you could us #8 3/8 drive screws with a mild steel backing plate inside the receiver with proper size [#27] holes.

I like what you did with the lower handguard. Nice looking rifle.

Looks like OOW may have fixed that selector gap issue... at least I don't see it in your picture.

I have just tested it for function so far as Wolf is selling for $6.50 per box at my local shop.
