Century cut off the muzzle threads. The kit is british. It originally came with a thumbhole stock, that's why it has that non-original screw and bushing holding the pistol grip (and there are likely no US parts). Call Rav at the Dealer's Warehouse, he has inch hammer struts pretty cheap (10 bucks I think). The selector won't go into FA when the lower is mated to an upper. No bullet button will work with an inch selector.

So my best option is to put a set screw through the paddle release, change out the receiver dust cover for one with stripper clip guides and top load i guess.

cant you use a Kydex? wrap around and use the 30 rd mags you already had prior to 2000, since you have no flash hider??

Use the slip on grip or you can BB it w/ a metric mag release and spring (Rav will have). And by "original" in my previous post I mean "original to the Century incarnation" not "original to the SLR", regarding the thumbhole stock.

I did the top load, screw through mag release bit for a while. Didn't care for it as it's too slow and unless you drop in the rounds just right the tail end gets hung up.

I bought a BB from PRK and a STANAG dustcover from SARCO, mounted a short scope on it. Easy to do the 10/20 mags from my existing stock of hi caps. I don't know if it will cover an inch release.

Just buy a ready-made maglock from PRK or Solar tactical for a maglock, Stick with 10-round mags, or 10/30's, and youre perfectly legal in california...
