FWIW: The fedord broomhandle catalog shows the 713 frames being made on cnc machines by in El Monte CA. It also shows the barrel extensions being brazed on as well. Still admire the ability of their master die maker for reproducing the mauser marks (and others).

Not sure they ever finished assembling all the brooms they had new frames for before they went under. This may account for some of the unfinished frames.

I, too, regret not buying at least one carbine but you could buy10 to 20 run of the mill brooms for the cost of one carbine. I also think the parts were all from many thousand like new 712s that had the frames cut right here in N. Cal. The uppers and all the internals were carefully removed prior to torching the original frames but i think I remember the mag releases being in short supply.
