WTB M78 parts

WTB M78 Parts: I have a post on the Valmet discussion page and I posted pictures of what parts of a 308 M78 (most of it, I think) that I currently have. My first choice would be to restore it, so before I part out what I have, and assuming that I can figure out how to restore the front of the receiv...

Definitely spare parts !!! :D Tony I would need a Bolt, Carrier, Recoil Assembly, Handguard, Bipod, Top Cover and rear sight parts. I have the trigger parts and know where to get the front sight. If I found all that I would have a AK milled front receiver section welded on, reshaped and modified. A...

RM, No intent to hurt your feelings--- I may take the barrel off of your hands, depending upon condition and caliber ( presume .308) !!! :D Tony Not hurt feelings, just disappointed. But you'll probably save me some dough. I'm the kind of guy who has more money in many, many things than they are re...

Definitely spare parts !!! :D Tony Wow, that really breaks my heart. But it is most probably the right advice. My first choice would be to rebuild it.

Hector

I know what you're saying about too many guns in the safe not getting shot.

Nice Sniper clone. I also looked at your other auctions. You have a great Izzy HB FAL kit there. I wish I could take on another project now.

Good luck with your sales

Thanks

A couple things. 1) I don't know Hector, so these are just my opinions. 2) ARS (Mark Graham) builds (or used to build) great Galils. I know, he built me one. It is perfect. 3) Your rifle looks great. Someone will be lucky to get it and should be very satisified. 4) The handguard on it looks to me li...

Oh, Tom, I almost forgot.

Great Looking Rifle. Looks like you built it just the way you wanted it. Not the typical Galil. A wood buttstock Galil, in 308, with a South African wood handguard, and it looks like a Hadar bolt carrier. Any other mods to it?

Thanks for posting the photo

Thanks for the replys. See the photo for the R4 parts I have gathered. Both Handguards are lower right. I think I'll build my "R4" clone, with the wood ones. What do you think?

Please help me with a R4 Handguard Price Check

This is my first post here. I've looked for a few months and have not seen one for sale so I've posted this here and at UziTalk. I hope that's OK. I need an opinion. I have someone who would like to buy a spare R4 handguard that I have. I have one complete R4 kit (less the ARM gasblock) and a new IM...
