I just recieved it today brand spanking new in cosmoline. I will be promptly sending it out to have the barrel shortened though to 18.5" from 22". I would shorten it further but in Canada it would make the gun restricted and then I could only shoot it on a range. I will post before and after pics of the rifle tomorrow and add the after pics after I get it back from the gunsmith. I also plan on adding the Troy Mcs chassis to the rifle later in the future.

Marstar did a while back but I didn't get my order in time to them. But they put me down for 2 more on the next and LAST batch from Marstar cause Norinco says this it they aren't making no more. But I couldn't wait for those two cause I wanted to send one of mine away to get the barrel shortened and put the Troy Mcs on it and I wanted it before wintertime so I ordered one from Frontier Taxidermy in Saskatchewan. Wicked service had the rifle 3 days after the phone call I made to them. Of the other two I ordered from Marstar I wanted to keep one stock and the other one I will sell to a buddy of mine who hasn't gotten his firearms license yet. And if my buddy ends up not wanting it I might put the JAE on that one and a high powered scope.
I would have bought a springfield but for 2+k they can keep it. I paid 399 apiece for these ones new packed in grease and I can always pimp them out so they perform just as good as a springfield for alot less.

Well I am not even going to be able to get it out to take some action shots of it I have to send it away to the gunsmith Pronto. Tuesday when I am finally off its getting cleaned up and sent out. My ammuntion just showed up too. So now I have 100 rounds of South african 147gr 7.62x51 400 rounds of AE 150gr 308 and 1000 rounds of PMC 147gr 7.62x51 to test out when I get her back. I think I will use the south african to break it in since its not very good stuff.
