Just put together a rifle using one of James River/Bula receivers with the original Winchester heel. This is very close to what I used in RVN in 1967.
Bula bolt and trigger group.
Criterion SAKO NM medium weight copy
Rest of the parts are from one of my CMP A Winchester kits from past.
Stock is USGI again from CMP 35 dollar stock.
Took her out for a test fire after build. Without changing a thing, point of aim = point of impact at 100yds with rear sight bottomed out and rear sight centered.
Bula trigger has nice take up and very sharp 2nd stage release.
My day has been made.

Beautiful rifle and I really love the second picture. Is Bula selling parts now to the public, Non-FFLs or were the parts you bought overruns from a military contract ?

I don't live too far from Bula and love what they're doing. When I talked with the head honcho he said they weren't selling parts to the public yet.

They had a few parts for sale at Camp Perry in July. It is my understanding that they will be marketed in the near future. As soon as I hear anything definitive, I will post for sure.
