Help With A Semi Auto
Posted 14 August 2003 - 11:10 PM
Is there anything else I need to do to make my semi-auto appear to be a M1A1?
Thanks for any input,

I got my oiler from Northridge gun parts, I know Sarco also had them. I prefer the 28 style as I have more control than with the M1 style oiler.

As BB stated, the Gunparts bbls may be a bit out of spec (tight chambers) but this is nothing a competent smith cannot fix. I suggest, too, you contact PK here on the board. Send the whole gun to him and he can likely get a bbl for it through his sources, plus spec the whole thing out for you.
What does the trooper mean?

A GI M1 stock assembly will replace the new production stock found on the Kahr M1 directly.
There are many things that can be done to make a new Kahr mimic a WWII M1, it just depends on your budget. Obtaining an approved form 1 for an SBR (apparently you already have) is the first. Finishing the details of the corner radius of the receiver and adding a pivot style bolt lock would make this gun indistinguishable for the real thing without a good inspection.

The info about the barrels is very enlightening. I was going to purchase a barrel from Numrich, but now I am not sure. I am still waiting for the paperwork to get here from the BATF to fill out, so I have a good amount of time before I can "legaly" purchase a short barrel. If a GI will fit, will the finish be different, and how hard is this to correct. As for the other modifications to mimic a FA, approximately what would the cost be to get this done. Would this include a dummy selector switch? How long would all this take, and if installing a short barrel what paperwork would need to be included. Thanks.

Donít be worried about the NAC barrel. If you are going to refinish anyway it is your best buy.
In order to do an SBR you need to submit a form 1 and it will take about 4 months to process.

As of right now, I am waiting on the forms to get here from the BATF so I can get them filled out. I thought they would get here sooner, but they are not. I was wondering if you could break down every thing you do to make a GI type conversion and its approximate costs. If this is too much trouble, do not bother. I just want to get an idea of what I would be looking at, and its costs. If it is easier to email me with this info that would be ok. Thanks for the info so far.
