I need a little help from you about this website shop, because no reply received from them, and I'm interested to buy some Garand parts to make my gun from a Cyma M14. I'm waiting the reply unsuccessfully. Is this shop working now?.
The second question is about listed parts of Garand in this website. I'm not sure if the Hand-guard part w/metal Front and Rear set (marked with GRD051 reference) include the hardware or we must order separately.
GRD051 will get you reproduction new handguards (Upper and Lower) with all the hardware that are supposed to be on the handguards. Depending on how you do your conversion you may also need the stock ferrule with sling hardware and the connecting ferrule that connects the upper and lower handguard. Or you can avoid both those parts by converting the M14 stock ferrule which also works.
The site is operational as far as I know. There had been some discussion about creating a fully operational Internet sales site but to my knowledge that has not happened yet. E-mail them for your shipping quote and to insure they have them available.
The handguards will come unfinished but are a very nice reproduction at a really good value. I'm not sure how they are about international sales but I have ordered from them and they are commendable
I'm not sure what that part is. What you'll get with the SARCO set is the thin hanguard with the retaining clip. The thicker fat handguard with the thin front ferrule and a metal space bar that slides down the channel. You will NOT get the ferrule that fits between the two handguards or the ferrule and sling hardware
Stalin should have known communism wouldn't work. There were red flags everywhere!"
You will need to buy: gas cylinder (main thing on the end) gas cylinder lock (holds it on the barrel) gas cylinder lock screw (holds the lock in place in front of the gas cylinder) front sight front sight screw Upper and lower handguard set w/metal (includes the upper band and the handguard spacer) Stock ferrule w/ swivel&screw (the thing that fits on the stock and locks into the lower band) Lower band (the metal band with 1 ½ loops, that sits on the barrel between the upper and lower handguard - also the loop that the stock swivel fits into)
If you do it by 2nd Bat's method, you can omit the stock ferrule and the lower band. I made mine with both of those. You might also be interested in the butt plate for extra authenticity.
SARCO replied my drop about hand-guard set parts, and they said. The GDR051 is composed of: Rear Hand-guard and clip. Front hand guard, spacer and ferrule.
The Lower band is NOT included in the set.
So I'll order these items following the Sarco reference parts list to convert a Cyma M14 in a Garand:
GRD109 Front Sight GRD110 Front Sight screw GRD096 Gas Cylinder GRD100 Gas Cylinder Lock GRD104 Gas Cylinder Lock Screw GRD051 Hand Guards with hardware GRD037 Lower Band GRD038 Lower Band spin GRD048 Stock Ferrule assembly GRD049 Stock ferrule swivel GRD050 Stock ferrule swivel screw.
and voilá...M1 Garand (The buttplate and other will be the next)
Is it ok? or I miss some part
My apologizes about repetitive posts about this matter. I'm sure this info is in somewhere of this forum, but I would like to do a correct order to Sarco.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
