Building up a Belgian M2

Well, one of my next personal projects is to put some of my pile of parts into yet another working rifle. This time, it's a Belgian 50.00 variant. Some time back, I purchased a NOS Belgian lower with wood butt. At Knob Creek, I scoured and came up with a NOS Belgian bipod cut barrel. Nice! Since then, I've screwed it together onto an earlier Coonan Type 1 and gathered a piece or two slowly. No hurry. Today, I scored a NOS nonserialized Belgian bolt carrier, complete with cosmolene still intact. I'm still on the quest, as it seems, to gather more parts. I need to come up with a Belgian bolt, charging handle, gas tube/piston/spring, front sight parts, flash hider screw, etc.

It appears you are building a 50.00 model since the M2 has no flash hider and a non-bipod cut barrel. You have an excellent collection of parts.

Looks like the makings of a nice early 1960s 50.00 clone, the most attractive metric variant IMHO.

If you continue to score Belgian parts, that will be an awesome rifle!

Yeah, although I'm an Inch guy, I'm liking this project. No rush, but if you got some parts, PM. I don't want this to turn into an ad, though.

Get with Sarco. Maybe they have some spare parts from their Chilean contract rifles, which has been said to be Belgium rifles (except for most handguards).
