SWEET. I've had my ZB-37 since I purchased it through a group buy here probably 5 or so years ago.
The only thing I'm missing is the gas regulator. I wonder if I can find one of those.
Any idea how much work on the user end is required???

Thanks... They do have one. I hadn't thought much about my ZB for many years. I even thought of selling the kit at one point. Now my interest is back, and since I've got the appropriate paperwork (SOT-02), I might just go ahead and build my ZB as a post-sample.

My LMO BESA barrel fits my slab sided shroud. My ribbed shroud won't show up till tomorrow.

My LMO Besa barrels look new. They are slathered in cosmoline and brown paper and plastic bagged.
I did notice that on the top of the breech end, the latching(?)tab that is milled into the czech barrel is missing.
I have not determined if that will have consiquences with the build.

Got the ribbed shroud, and would like to take the gas system parts off the slab side shroud and put onto the ribbed. Is there a trick to removing this thing? Im guessing they have something to do with the gas system as there are numbers on one part of it similar to the gas adjustment parts of other weapons.

You guys need a mill or need to become good friends with a machinist when you get ready for the semi conversion. The bolt alone will eat up a couple carbide cutting bits and take about 10 hrs work. The transmission is also a PITA, Rockwell hardness of 60 and tough as nails. Plan on ruining another bit here even if you go real slow.
I plan on posting a range report sometime in the next couple weeks, and will try and post some video if I can figure out how. I'm still looking for a set of AA sights if anyone knows of or has a set to sell.I would also recommend getting a manual from jbaum on here, he has a nice manual out with lots of information, not to mention he is a great guy to do business with.

I'm hoping that my 14" Shaper can handle most of the bolt and transmission machining. The bits don't cost much.

I will buy one of the semi kits if I can get enough $$ together while they are still in stock.

Those look nice. Anyone by chance have a pic of the left side? I'm curious what the handle looks like sticking out of the receiver.

My Centerfire kit doesnt have the large handle. There is just a smaller metal part that pivots. From the pic on their site, this model is handleless.

It appears that this model has a removable barrel shroud handle and that the handle is not included in the CFS kits.

 

BTW, anyone want to trade an excellent WWII marked German MG-42 barrel for an extra Longmountain outfitter barrel they might have picked up?  I was too slow on the trigger for the barrel purchase.

Might be interested in a trade, picked up a few extra LMO barrels and I am building about 12 MG42's so I need extra barrels, sent PM a couple of days ago

Update on the semi parts orders/shipment

We are trying to include a bonus CD with build information on each and every part of the build.

This was a late idea, and the CD is nearly complete, so the orders will be held up a day or two due to the late and free bonus.

I'm told the first 5 kits will be easy to ship before Christmas. The qty of the orders caught everyone off guard, so additional parts will need to be fabricated for the remaining orders.  will that delay the next 5? unknown at this time. I do know that they are working hard to try to fill all orders before christmas.

As I get updates I'll post them here in the thread. (customers and members have also had an email in case they don't watch this thread)

Goes behind the flash suppressor. Use the correct armors tool for tightening the suppressor on.

Thanks CaptMax!

I didn't get one with the CFS kit.  Have to send them an e-mail to see if they'll send one
