    please note: this was not a complaint against copes , i have bought a lot of stuff from them and it has all been good stuff.

    i have just started looking at all the kits i have and stuff to build ( projects) and i will never in my lifetime get them all done.

    i have started looking at some of them and in the next month or so i am going to dispose of at least some of them i will never get around to doing. please don't sent me any PM'S about them. i will post them when i get ready to sell them.

    the barrel order has been cancelled.........

    there where a couple places that had original barrels for sale....

    I "think" APEX and maybe Sarco. They may have been sewer pipes though.

    EDIT- nevermind, I was thinking of the 8mm M76 rifle.

    Sorry to hear it Planning, I had hoped you would be able to build them.

    I'm in a similar boat. I have been waiting on Copes so I can build my third Tabuk. The long wait is demotivating.

    I may just build it on my last Yugo factory new barrel I have left. It'll be a Tabuk carbine!

    I have a reciever on the way, NDS is making them again, short onetime order. I got on the email list for pre-order and have been cleared to order. The website will reflect availability in a couple of weeks, so they are coming!!

    My question is, does anybody have rivet kits specifically for the M72??

    Planning, quit toying with my emotions! I can't take much more of this "on-again, off-again" mess!!!

    J/m, of course, I'm glad to hear you're giving it another go. I can't wait to see the finished build (again).

    today i went looking for the 2 yugo donor kits for the tabuk builds. to get them ready. i found 6 yugo kits to use, but the barrels were not as good as i would like.( i only needed 1 with a really nice barrel). i saw this unmarked box in the back with some of the romanian kits i had boxed up so i figured it was a romanian kit and i had not marked the box. i pulled it out for later to look at. it had never been opened. i opened the box and inside was a really nice looking yugo underfolder kit. barrel is really nice, all matching parts. bolt looks like it had never been fired. still has a lot of grease on it. i wiped off some of it.
    some days you get real lucky. i figured i was going to have to buy another barrel for the tabuk build. guess not.
    i think i must have bought it from apex for the first time i was going to build a tabuk and just forgot it. the second time i bought another one from apex and just built a straight stock yugo with it after i descided not to do the tabuk.

    (the underfold parts will be used for another romanian "G"/yugo underfolder build.)
