I MIGHT sell off an Isreali parts kit. Has an older 80% RSP KMP trigger and sear. Internals are machined. Needs rivet kit and bucking bar to assemble. Also have Issy A6 kit and repro tripod with pintle and real T&E. IF I sell it like to do it as an all for $$ deal. Kit was bought on GB from parts kit depot. Side plate was bought from member. Machining was done by member.
I can add pics if needed.

My guess would be $2800 to $3000....I think if you put it up on GB it could skyrocket.

WOW! I wonder if that was an anomaly or people are just going that crazy for parts kits now? I mean prices like that tempt me, no lie. But I could just finish it up. Spring repairs around house time so extra cash is nice but not NEEDED

I bought my first parts kit about 10 -12 years ago with a RSP and rivets for about $450 shipped. Then a few years later I bought a kit locally for about $500 and thought I was sticking my neck out. Almost as good as buying a 1 ounce gold piece. I have all the parts to put that one together but my milling machine is in storage. I'm out of commission for awhile.

I used to do jobs for a guy who just started a business and had little money so I did his electrical maintenance work for parts kits. I got a ton of them including an Israeli 1919a4 (I have a thread started on it, I am having Greaser do it), This was 15 years ago when kits were cheap, like 300 bucks minus the RSP if I recall. I only ever bought one kit in my life and that was my 1944 Inglis Bren MkII kit for 109.00 dollars. man wish we could go back. It's costing over a grand to have the Bren done semi. I also ended up with 2 mostly Mg42 kits I have had for 15 years but no one will build them :(

Check with this guy...He is a member...Maybe you can use one kit to help pay to get the other built...I think he is the only one building them now and may have some in stock. WTB: Complete MG42 and M53 parts kits and parts | 1919 A4 Forums

Wish I could find someone to do my Inglis Bren kit! Not sure the torch cut receiver is in decent enough shape though to be salvaged without some additional pieces which is a shame. I've had it for awhile and may just try to sell it off since I can't find anyone who works on them anymore...

My kit is being done as we speak. PM me and I will give you details (I'm not sure if it's okay to give out a licensed gunsmiths business information on the forum, it probably isn't but I want to be respectful)
