ALSO, i have talked with nightwolf0215, he is gonna be sending payment as well, BUT, that still leaves at least 2 un-claimed kits!

great*guns may be out! So his 2 kits are still on hold for me if anyone wants to get them! But you have to act fast, because centerfire will only hold them for a little bit longer!

My kit showed up today. The UPS guy knows why the ZB is a heavy weapon.      It's sickening to see such a masterpiece of machining destroyed by a torch.

Is there anybody rebuilding these in semi?

Thanks again Marty

wizzegun, we are building them in semi auto!!!

It is a shame to see them brutally destroyed, and the history that is with them. The likes of weapons such as these will NEVER be seen again! Can you imagine what it would cost to have that receiver made new today???

That may be a possibility. When i said "we", i meant, the group! I would be happily work on certain things for you if you can not do them.

Right now, I AM NOT ABLE TO DO ANY RE-WELDING OF THE RECEIVER. I do NOT have my class 07 license.

I AM going to apply for it VERY soon! There is a demand for it.

I said we because, people in the group, are tossing around ideas i am sure, (i am), on how to make it run semi auto only. I also am waiting to hear back from another person about semi auto parts that are ATF approved but so far no luck.

As i said before, anyone can make their weapon themselves, as long as the rules that are in place are followed to the letter! And if one of group members has a great idea on how to do it, and it works, then we can all do it the same way. I am sure something like that will happen, or one of the few people who already have a design, will make parts to buy.

I have a plan for a simple modification to permanently convert the existing trigger group to SA only while still enabling the grips to serve as the charging handles.

What is stopping me right now in my design is the striker system. I don't have access to milling equipment and I want to configure the system so that it looks as close to original as possible externally which means no extra charging handles or the addition of a new rear sight base as WLA did with their design. To do this right, I will need to install denial pins and weld the receiver together first. I want to do it right the first time so I'm letting my ideas stew for a while.

Good man!! Thanks for sharing!

See what i mean wizzegun? We can all share ideas and between all of us, WE will get them running one way or another!

Sweet!  Unfortunately, my talents lie elsewhere and will be at your collective mercies.  I have faith in American ingenuity though.  I will contribute to the "we" when I can.

Ditto, my kit arrived Friday and I was very surprised to see how massive this gun is! This is like a BREN on steroids! I see a lot of design similarities between my BREN and the ZB37. I think some of the semi mods on the BREN can be transferred directly to this build.

I laid out the cut receiver and it 'appears' that I have all the original cut pieces from the same receiver. Compared to my BREN, this should be a much easier re-weld project. The cuts are lighter and less messy due to the thinner metal and access to the inner receiver is great. I'm still struggling with the BREN weld and look forward to switching to this one.

All the parts look to be in very very good shape. No major dings and the blueing is fully intact. The rear sight assembly is the coolest thing I have ever seen on a gun! The tripod is amazingly small for such a massive gun. My MG and BREN tripods are massive compared to this dinky thing. I'll be getting it cleaned up in a couple days and try to determine if anything is missing. Immediately I don't see a barrel carry handle in this kit. Are yours missing too?

I have been searching the internet and find no semi build instructions out there. In fact there appears to be few resources at all. So what is the 'collective' plan here. Shall we start a ZB37 group build thread? It would be great if folks could start posting the needed resource information.

My rambling thoughts this morning. Thanks Mech for handling all the group buy details. It went very smoothly. Oh also I am guessing the new barrel will arrive later?

Correct on the new US barrel. It is being made by a different company. I will keep you posted on the delivery time as i am updated.

I agree on the info. We need to dig up what we can and share ides. Then we can get these running.........unless someone offers the semi auto parts again.

Right now, i feel like we can do it without those!

Word is backed up brother! Starting last weekend, centerfire received over 700 internet orders and been compounding ever since. I was delayed slightly sending the funds but they have had them since Monday this week! I have tried to call several times and the phone was busy so I redialed 12 to 15 times before I finialy got through! The person dealing with our group was gone, but I did talk to the owner! Our stuff is good but he was not sure about when it ships. I will find out very soon. I also wanted mine by the holiday as I had some time off.

Got my kit the other day, it is in excellent condition! Question... did anyone else get a ammo can and belt? Mine was not included, they are advertising them with the parts kit on Centerfire's web site.  Did they forget mine?

Colww, one other member is missing the belt and can as well. I will get it squared Monday!

Also, barrels are delayed a bit, the barrel maker is having equipment problems but production will resume shortly.
