Orlando,

Is that a converted US Garand barreled-receiver or a PB that was simply assembled by as a BM-59 by Mr. Shufflin?
(I've wanted a "Nigerian-style" BM-59 MkI ever since I saw/fired the 1st one at Carabobo, VZ. = The VZ National Honor Guard at their version of ANC carries BM-59 rifles.)

yours, sw
