I bought his previous one. The seller is a good guy to deal with. RPK... If you built that one, it was pretty well put together. Good attention to detail on using anti-sieze, etc. Except whoever parked the barrel parked the bore in the process. And what was up with using hardware store brass wood screws painted black for the stock tang and stock swivel. Or was that a documented Longbranch thing?

I did the refinishing also not sure about park in the bore.From I remember all of the rifles were cleaned and lubed test fired and cleaned and lubed before he came to pic them up.Park in the bore can be removed by scrubbing w/ solvent.

As far as the hardware I used all of the parts I was supplied with.That was about 2-3 years ago I built 3 C1's and 3 L1A1's and various other projects that he had.He is more keen on C1's than I so I think they may be correct.

Not a bad price for what is essentially a parts gun with a DSA receiver. Then again, it does have a complete scope outfit!

Wow... the market is... the market. I recently knew of two scope sets, each in the $1500 ball park.
