Thank you for the history lesson. No, I was not making a Schofield round. The US Army actually

the LC. [In...

That has been understood. None the less he has Internet and both companies sell their stock

his country or ...

Have you tried checking with Gunparts.com or Jack First to see if they have a good condition
M77 stock and parts? I still have and occasionally use my late 1960s vintage Nylon 66. Mine

The current bolt stop looks good, but without measurements of what the dimensions should be,

all options I...

Well comment 2 is the most applicable. Trust me, I know the difference between 7.63x25mm and
7.62x25mm. Mostly Fiocchi, but also 30 years ago some old Nazi stuff till it was gone. Worn

shot or t...

Okay, I just found M11/Sig 228 blueprints on Scribed. Multiple versions there. Reviewed em.
