FOUND: Lugged Argentine Barrel for Izzy LB Build

Found one, thank you FALfiles!!

I, along with nearly everyone else it seems, am searching for a barrel for my Israeli LB kit.
I'd really like an early Argentine lugged non-bipod cut barrel since my kit came with the open ear style gas block.

Please PM me with what you have any what you're looking to get for it.
I am new here but I have 389 feedback (100% positive) on the AKfiles under the same username.

Thanks in advance, picture for attention.

I'm not sure what "type" of lower it is so if you could shed some light onto that I would appreciate it. Being new to the platform I'm not sure what/where the differences are so I hope these pictures help.

I got it from DSA on 11/19. Unfortunately one of the ears is bent in but I think I can bend it back. DSA is supposed to be sending me a replacement but they said it will more than likely be a closed ear style. Personally I like the look of the closed ear more.

If you decide you don't need the gas block , I will gladly take it off your hands
As is

And I must add , you scored the best looking kit I have seen so far
The selector track is very faint between safe and semi
And no mark between semi and auto
Take down lever hasn't rubber all the finish off either
Recoil plate is mint
My first kit was a mix of used and like new parts

Yeah, I'm pretty happy with it. Although the lower seems to be painted while the rest of the parts are just parked. I'm not sure if that is how they all were or if everyone just got a random receiver,random handguards, random gas block, etc.

It seems judging from the half dozen kits I've seen here and what friends have recieved that the rifles where rebuilt and put in storage
Mine has a mint gasplug and a like new Israeli bolt and carrier , type 2 lower
with surface wear on the controls ,built on a unworn or refinished type 2 Belgian stub and a well worn HB charging handle

Yours looks nicer than the officer model in the DSA add

A threaded barrel (for the combo device) would probably be a more accurate rendition since it's a Type 2 rather than the early style with lugged barrel. But, you build it how you like. There was a large combination and conversion on these rifle over time, so just about any combination would be fine. Good luck in the build.

This.
Especially if the OP obtains a closed ear GB that he prefers. That open ear GB would make great trade fodder, they are kind rare. I see he already has offers to take it off his hands.
