I love Buds but this gun is rough. There is rust on the butt end of the receiver, trigger group, and magazine that can't be fixed with a little steel wool. Almost all of the blueing is worn off, and the stock is going to take a lot of work to rescue. I took the gun completely apart to remove the cosmoline and found that the gas piston extention was frozen in place. After I pounded it out with a hammer and a small steel rod, I noticed that it was pretty badly bent. This is a great example of why you or a gunsmith should always inspect any used firearm that you purchase. Firing this weapon in the condition that i received it in would have most certainly resulted in a dangerous failure of the gas system. I wanted a project gun, but this feels more like raising Lazarus...

When they said the stock was a little beat I didn't expect chunks of the wood to be knocked out of it. Bluing was almost completely gone. No rust though due to the bath of cosmoline. But still fine overall just very ugly to look at.

Picked up from FFL on 12/26. Gun was better than expected. A little beat up and covered in cosmo. Completely disassembled,cleaned and refinishing stock. Firing pin was froze up,be sure to do a complete cleanup on this firearm. Arrived on 12/24 and was shipped quite fast with the current rush on things. Very satisfied.

Stock was beat to hell and back and soaked in cosmoline is an understatement, But the guns metal is in very decent condition the bluing is great. What i do recommend doing is taking that firing pin completely apart and cleaning it i ran 20 rounds through mine it ran perfect, and is now my project gun time for the tapco stock and 20 round mags to make this what the public calls an " assault " rifle. Pistol grips are Scarey not ergonomic!

The rifle arrived and the stock was horrible as one might expect, the kit was not included in the stock nor a strap. it did come with the bayonette. The rifle shot very straight and only had a couple failure to fires, that was probably the cheap ammos fault tho. Overall for $299 this was a great deal.

The weapon came as described, battle worn, and caked is cosmoline. The stock was beat up and soaked through, but solid. The bluing was partially worn off on one side of the barrel. I spent probably 24+ total hours cleaning and restoring the gun. It turned out beautiful. I refinished the stock but tried to leave some of its previous scars to give it character. Make sure to thoroughly clean this weapon, INCLUDING THE BOLT, before firing it. My firing pin was sticky when I received the weapon. It is not enough to spray the bolt with brake cleaner or soak it in kerosene. You MUST disassemble it in order to clean it. It is not hard to do, check youtube. I took it to the range tonight for the first time and it ran flawlessly, 80 rounds. :)
