Well, I was reminded today that I am a dope... :blackeye:

I placed the winning bid on an L2A2, and was very excited up until realizing about 3 hours prior to the auction ending that the tabs had been filed off.

So now I'm stuck with the thing, and was wondering if it would be possible to "rebuild"/fabricate/weld new tabs onto the dust cover? The gunsmith I use is very talented, but is this even feasible?

Thanks all :shots:

Honestly dont see why not, but even without them it will still work.

I wouldn't worry about it. it was common practice to remove the tabs when the cover showed signs of fracture. It was an official modification.
