I had purchased 2 of the broken stock specials and finally received the first one on Thursday. I am unsure on year of manufacture but it is all matching, even the stock that it came with matched the rifle but unless a use a couple brass pins to hold it together it is pretty much toast. I found one of the Chinese Fiberglass stocks locally in Vegas and after some light fitting it is nice and snug, i also found a pebble finish " french tickler" hand guard via Ebay and it matches pretty well. It only has around 50-65% bluing but luckily it was rust free, just tons of cosmo, grime and what appeared to be some kind of animal hair in the cosmo. The barrel is near perfect as is the crown, i took it out yesterday with my Y ugo i had just completed and this gun was hitting a 6" plate at 100+ yards without effort. It was definitely worth the cost of the build. Type 56 via RTI $225.67+Jungle Stock $12.50 and Hand guard $18.25=$256.42 + 4 hrs of cosmoline removal and fitting the stock id say it was well worth it, i just cant wait to see what the second rifle looks like, But i am more than happy with my first Type 56. Big Thanks To Royal Tiger Imports and Joey and Dave in customer service. i will definitely purchase from you guys again!!!
