    We were all over that range for about 3 hours.. there was a guy and his wife.. or a guy and gal..(I don't know if they were married or not) shooting next to us at the 25/50 yard range. I believe she was shooting a sks with brass ammo. I was kinda surprised when she left the brass casings laying on the ground and left. My daughter scooped it up pretty quick.. Lol

    They have 20 more up now.
    I am thinking they got a shipment in and don't want to deal with the situation they had last time with long shipment *****in so they are doing them in lumps.

    yep.. no more gunsmith specials...

    That and maybe they figured as quick as they were disappearing.. they could get more.. I don't blame them for wanting to make money.. but.. wish they'd keep that price low.. oh well..

    I'm bringing this thread back from the dead because I finally finished field-stripping and cleaning my $199.00 Royal Tiger special. As a reminder, here's what I started with:

    After a little work:

    I'd planned to put this into a red fiberglass "jungle" stock, but given the low serial number, I decided to keep it more original. While I look for a correct early Chinese stock, I dropped it into a '54 Tula stock I had laying around. Fits like a glove and looks right at home. The handguard is the original Chinese one.

    I did no metal refinishing at all, just cleaning. The blue shows some honest wear on the high spots, but is remarkably good considering the condition the stock was in.

    I couldn't successfully photograph it, but the bore is excellent. I'm very happy with this rifle for the price. Looking forward to taking it out for some range time.

    I don't have any experience with them but if they have busted stocks like the one above then I'm out. I purchased 3 of these from another distributor when these first became available for around $239 with serviceable stocks. I don't know about you guys but an early type 56, blade cut stock can be hard to find.
