I saw Cope's had some rusty kits selling for $85 so I took a gamble and got two, I probably should have spent the extra $ and got normal kits, but hey I like a challenge.

I ended up with two matching number Romy G kits from 1982 with trashed front grips( don't like them anyhow), moderate rust on the barrel/trunnion areas, rusty threads on one, and a stretched disconnector spring on the other. Also have some surface rust on one of the top covers.

I think these will clean up fine.

They both cleaned up pretty well but still had minor pitting on the rear sight block, they were both turned into pistol kits and are now residing in Nevada with a friend. Here's a pic of one of them.

This was built in, and is kept in Nevada all nice and legal.

It's kinda hard to shoot without a trigger, huh? ;)

That's why they were $89. Missing just one part too many.:rolleyes:

I hope I'm wrong, but is that a normal rear trunion in that thing?

Unless it's a reg'd SBR, that is.

The trunion's tang was cut short, redrilled as a sling loop and a 1/4 inch x 1-1/4in x 1-1/4in steel plate was welded to it to block any possible use with a stock, no SBRs here.

Found a pic of rear trunion. Federally legal?
