Another Not a 1968 Tula AK, a Busted Career 707, and FWB 90 Grip Part

Steven K. Ledin,

The AK I got for a friend did not have a 1968 Tula receiver. i found out it's a U.S. made No Dak Spud receiver with a Tula marked trunion. Still fine. Below is another AK without a 1968 Tula receiver.

Another gun I was going to use in the upcoming AGBI (Air Gun Bitch Invitational) is my Career 707 .22 caliber lever action PCP repeater, shown below. I haven't charged the gun in years, and now that I want to use it, it won't hold air. The hand pump and my scuba tank are ready to go.Teardown coming.

My Feinwerkbau model 90 with the electronic trigger works very well, but I'm missing the bottom part of the grip. I'll start on making one. The gun shoots superbly.

I'll be testing a possible new OPMOD airgun scope this weekend. If anyone can break it, I will. I'll start it off on my RWS 52 Deluxe in .25. That darn thing will loosen the fillings on your teeth.

My Shirley and the kids say hi! Have a great weekend!
