BM59 Para Build

Tim Shufflin strikes again! It took some luck, but I was able to find a para folder, stock and the correct quick detach flash hider. Sent off to Shuff at the end of January and received today. She's a beast. Cheers!

Unfortunately, no cat to look at. Just a Cold War wood and steel battle rifle.

If anybody's interested I have a VG condition Italian BM 59 para stock that I would sell for $350 shipped. I am not particularly fond of folders.

I will post this on the Market place in a few minutes - and I'll put up photos later this evening.

Where did you get the para tri-compensator? Been looking for one for years. Need it to complete my para build.

The Garand Guy (he's on CMP forum and Shuff's forum) sold it to me only because I bought the folding stock from him. He only had two and I believe sold the other.

The parachutist Tri Comp

Just a note to anyone using a Parachutist tri comp. They will not work with any of these 59 kits out. The problem is that the grenade sight does not have the relief needed to go against the Parachutist's larger base. I have had many customers build look a likes but had the standard tri comp. Those are no problem. I never had a customer use one of these kits and a Parachutist brake though. I must have been lucky with other customers because they had grenade sights that worked.

To make the grenade sight work with the comp on this rife I have to grind the sight to a longer angle. I don't know if it's a big deal yet but that is what has to be done.
