New to the forum.
I recently acquired this BM59. I am having trouble finding information on it. It looks to be a Springfield BM59 with a Nigerian stock. The receiver is stamped 7.62 mm BM59 Springfield Armory. The stock has the plastic pistol grip. The barrel is stamped Geneseo, IL .308. It has PB BM59 parts mixed in with the firearm.
My question is, did Springfield Armory make these with Nigerian stocks? I've only seen the folding stocks with the plastic grips. Any insight and info on this firearm will be greatly appreciated. Also, do you think this was an original gun that Springfield assembled or this was a gun parted together. No matter what, I saw the gun and had to have it.
