Hey Guys,
I haven't posted in a long while, thanks to the business taking up all of my time. I purchased a kit from sacra a few years back and took it to a local manufacturer to get it finished. After about a year and a half of run around I finally got it back, he said all the machine work has been done, RH side plate is done, I think everything is there including rivets. I would love to find somebody local or nearby that could help me get this thing together finally. Any help/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ya, and you can wait three years to have it build. Unless it is an RPD, I would not send it to him. I like Stan but when I ask over three years when my gun will be done, his reply "soon" has not cut it.

I'm not a manufacturer but I could look it over. Was the machine work done from prints and do you have a copy? You should check all the dimensions before any assembly can start. Do you have any tools to build it or is that the issue? Let's talk about this. KevinT

Kevin, I will gladly buy any tooling needed to do the job. The only thing they told me was the machine work was done in Ocala. I would love to get this thing together.

By all means, talk with Kevin and see if you can tool up and build it yourself, with his assistance. The home build process is the best way to get to know these and really be proud of the gun.

Morning Sean, I'm over in Polk County, there's also a couple of others in the relative vicinity that have built thier own. I'm just a back-room hack, but if you need any assistance on putting yours together, feel free to contact me.

Might be back room but I wouldn't call you a hack. You did a really nice job on yours.

I appreciate all the assistance guys, I have reached out to Ernie and I am saving everybody's numbers as I am sure this won't be my first and last experience.

On another note I purchased a MG 08/15 today and would really like some guidance if anybody knows good forums to meet people that know A LOT more about these than me?

Thanks again,


Sean

Say, my elderly parents live in Winter Haven. Would you accept a visit from a bored gun nut? I love mom/dad but they are too weak to do anything and I go nuts by the second day of a visit.

Loboslanding used to be out that way as well. I drove up from the Keys to a build party he was having. Not sure if he still frequents this board though. It's been a few years...
