The first 11 kits have un numbered lowers and all have matching bolt and carriers so the first 11 will be matching.
I do have some freshly refinished like new Imbel bipod cut barrels that I can substitute for an extra $150
These extra prices are good for the kit purchases ONLY

Hey, being a newb, this will seem like a stupid question. To complete these kits do you need to get the lower, or upper reciever yourself?

Are you talking about Portland Oregon? So you will be at the gun show on the 10th&11th?

You will need the upper receiver. The lower is included.

No uppers at the show but I will be doing another group buy on Imbel upper receivers real soon, stay tuned.

I am still waiting on a FFL from Magnus so I can ship out his receivers from the last group buy, so pleeeease contact me and let me get the books closed on that deal.

Oddcarl, yeah I think he knows plenty about that rifle. Pat will be at the Portland, OR show and you can see if he has what you need. Check the winking smilie and see if you can tell what he means.

I didn't notice. I have someone trying to carry out a conversation with me while I'm reading/typing.

I would really like to know more about it and what he wants for it before I spend the time and money to drive to Portland.

It is one of the rarest and most expensive Australian rifle builds to do and the correct sling is even harder and the correct transit chest is approaching "holy grail" status.
I do very high quality builds on very rare parts as well as cheap builds on crappy parts that the customer supplies.

Oh, well I'm not looking for "Holy Grail" rifles, just an inch pattern with good performance at a reasonable price. I live outside of Bend, and spending $60+ and 6+ hours round trip to drive up to Portland is a little much if it's all for not.

Yes just wait till I get some good inch receivers out on the market this winter and then some rifles will be available, in the mean time buy some Imbel receivers and I will see about getting more Imbel kits.
