Hello all, I'm usually in the Romy or GSG forum, but I picked up another AMD-65 today for $499. It's an FEG from TGI.
I already owned a Blonde 65 on a spud reciever for a couple years, and like an idiot I sold it last year. So, I found this one at cabelas and it was clean, unfired, came with a steel 30rd mag, box and was free of the usual TGI problems, so I grabbed it.
The brake seems straight, and the stock is a bit stiff, but not too bad. The finish is very nice and action is smooth and clean, free of rust.
Does anyone have a good source for blonde grips with the steel caps? I saw some at Cope's, but they are all wood and do not have the steel ring/cap on the mating surface.
I think I'm going to start my SBR paperwork and make this thing REALLY loud
Hope you all had a good christmas!
Ooops! Sorry, I don't believe you if there are no pics.
Looks like you got some pretty nice original plastic grips. Mine were pretty used up and I ordered two from Copes and they really flubbed up the shipment.
First I just received one grip without the hardware,then it took many phone calls and e-mails that were not answered, to get the other one shipped.
And it was also pretty used up also,and I still did not get all the others hardware. I had enough to get a fairly good set on my AMD-65.
When Copes say "USED" it's really used.
I also asked some questions about copes high priced wood grips, no mounting hardware is included even at $25 dollars each.
when I asked more questions about the hardware I got NO answers.
Needless to say I won't buy from them again ever.
wow, what a bummer. thanks for the heads up rifleshooter. I guess I should get out the buck knife and carve some
Keep searching the net. I bet you can find a set of wood grips. Maybe experiment with some stippling on the plastic set.
Just keep searching the EE. I got and AMD last month and it took me all of three weeks to find someone on the EE selling pristine wood grips. David
