Need some feedback on a project.
I have a TRZ.1 marked stock with the Yugo s/n, and the "BK" cartouche on the left hand side of the butt stock. The right hand side has WaA623 stamps, somewhat readable yet faint.
Since this is a flat butt plated stock, I have been holding on to this because it looks better, aesthetics, compared to the cupped butt plate. Plus, I need some variety since two of my Yugo-captured 98k have cupped butt plates. This project has two avenues: source the Preduzece 44 receiver, ideal solution, or get another receiver, Russian/Romanian/Albanian capture. But, I do not want to go to the latter solution, not just yet.
I have been searching/watching the for sale sections of the other boards but I have yet to see a Yugo-capture 98k barreled receiver on sale. Have checked the gun shows and gun stores/shops but no luck.
Do you all have an idea as to where to source a Yugo-capture 98k barreled receiver? Let me put it another way, are those barreled receivers being sold separately?
Appreciate the help.
