That happened a lot between during and after ww2. Those are still just shooters no collector value unless its a singer part on the gun. But pretty much all of that is fake.
People do recreate 100% original guns of all military issue types but doing that is normally more than the collector value is worth. The folks that do that generally do it as a labor of love not to make money since gathering the original parts one at a time isn't cheap
