    Friends,

    After finding a CETME parts kit in EXCELLENT condition,
    I've come to the conclusion that my minimal skills/tools are INADEQUATE to put together a rifle, using a complete new receiver, the necessary 922r compliant parts & new barrel.

    Do any of our member assemble OR know a competent person who can do the job??
    (Preferably a person within a reasonable driving distance of The Alamo City.)

    I plan to do the refinishing/minimal required repairs upon the wooden furniture, as well as the final assembly, since the G3 "plastic" stocks leave me "cold".

    Note to "management": IF this is the wrong place to post this inquiry, feel free to move it to a more appropriate place.

    yours, satx

    Darqhelmet,

    Pardon me for pointing out that while it's an easy task to unpack, inspect & degrease all the parts (This CETME kit is in GREAT physical shape & once refinished the wooden furniture will be quite handsome. = NICE-looking wood on the stock/fore-end, under all the accumulated crud/dirt!!!), I don't have a suitable press for the barrel and requisite welding skills necessary to do major portions of the assembly.

    THANKS for your response.

    yours, satx

    If someone else puts it together for you, that makes them a manufacturer. They must be licensed as so, and fill out the required paperwork.

    The videos keep going. That was the first one in a long series. Follow the white rabbit.

    smittyb,

    NOT according to the BATFE Technical Branch, as I'm using a registered/serial-numbered receiver, new US-made barrel & the required number (9 in this case) of "922r" parts.

    You would be 100% CORRECT if I was going to bend-up/weld a receiver "flat".

    yours, satx

    Yes, IF YOU were assembling it for yourself, I would agree.
    But you asked about someone else assembling it for you, which would require them to have a type 07.

    smittyB,

    ONCE more, SORRY but you are 100% incorrect, according to BATFE's Technical branch. = I called & asked, after explaining what I wanted done.

    Btw, I'm about to request a Class 7 FFL, so I can do the things lawfully that I once did as a "hobby", when I still was an active LEO. = 150 bucks each 3 years is an easy way to BE SURE that I'm legal.
    (Some things like reloading for friends in the department, over a decade ago, may have required an ammo manufacturer's license.)

    yours, satx

    Hmm, guess I’m wrong.
    A lot of people sure have had unnecessary “build parties” over the years.
