    Sorry no pics at the moment, will post some tonight. Kit is in decent shape, I was worried I overpaid but I dont think I did now. Matching #'s. The mags are beat up but functional, so they're gonna be our beaters. One metal mag that'll be refinished, two bakelite mags that have been painted black ( :down: ) can I strip the pain off of these some how? And one black plastic mag.

    Now I have no idea what to do with any of this :o

    Questions I have:

    What complience parts should I get to keep the original grip? Links would help.

    Any good step by step resources on how to build this? How do I remove the old rivets?

    How should I refinish the metal? How should I blast it, How should I spray it?

    Thanks man :bowdown:

    If I choose not to park it now, would it be possible to park it later on, or would I have to destroy the reciever to take it apart?

    The best way is to park it when it's complete. I like to run a couple hundred rounds through my builds before I refinish them. That way if there's anything wrong I can fix it and not have to re-do the finish.

    Some electricians put them upside down if they are switched.

    Did I polish my Polish handguards :rofl:? I refinished my under folder hand guards but I haven't touched the Tantal ones. There is a pretty wide variety of colors that came like that from the factory. I've seen dark brown-ish ones to light orange.
