My buddy Charlie tried to build up two of the kits I bought for him. Back when they cost $39 a piece.
Building a new reciever for these things requires a milling machine and a lathe, even with the "kit" recievers, magazine bodies and "trigger box flats" that Hellbox used to make. Extensive machining needed on bolt and trigger group also to make it semi auto. Fixed firing pin is milled out and the bolt body is step drilled to take an AR "floating" firing pin. Pretty much needs a whole new trigger group fabricated. You also need a 16" or longer barrel to be legal. All these parts add ~$300 in parts to the kit you started with. This is NOT counting the machine time!
Both kits ended up as non function wall hangers. Moral of the story, I can build a semi Uzi for a whole lot less time and money and end up with twice the gun...
If your still interested I've got a drum mag and possibly some other parts still setting around. PM me and we'll work out a deal. I still have some files and blueprints on my laptop if your interested. I'll email you that info if you want it.
