Vz58 rear sights

Anyone know whether an RPK windage-adjustable rear sight will fit onto a VZ58? I’ve done it on Mak90s and AKs.

Stock Metal for K31

Anybody know of a source for stock metal including the small plate the front receiver screw does thru? Picked up a walnut stock but sans any metal. Haven’t found any online source for these items. Thanks

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

I did find a Winchester bolt, which is not numbered, and which does close on the GO gage, but on neither the NO GO or FIELD gages. No issues with closing on various batches of factory and handloaded rounds. Could the original issue have been the lack of interchangeability between early Winchester ri...

Re: M1917 Headspace Question

Thanks to you both. Haven’t fired the rifle yet, and since the bolt was a non-matching Eddystone, thought I would ask for advice. My RIA 1903 (rebarreled HS 1943) and RA 8-43 O3A3 do not have a similar issue. So is this a Winchester or 1917-peculiar issue? My previous 1917s were all Eddystone and ha...

Bolt stripped, and very light fingertip pressure applied. Would not, as expected, close on both NO GO and FIELD gages. Bolt closes normally on surplus amm...
