    Fwiw, there was an m79 receiver + bunch of parts on
    GB a few months back - wasn’t cheap through… 6K
    https://www.gunbroker.com/item/905932181

    Same guy was trying to sell the parts on arfcom for a few months with no success


    FrankG also sold a complete m79 DD for ~6k 3 or 4 months ago.
    It had his MWT electro pencil chicken scratches on the
    side of the receiver, which I don’t think I could stomach
    owning long term, lol

    Done!

    Couple completed pics; overall, pleased with the outcome

    It is surprising how many parts this gun uses given the simplicity of the action.
    In particular, the sight assembly seems massively overcomplicated compared to say an m203 sight.

    Barrel is a bit tricky to put on, but simple once you figure out the couple tricks..

    Looks awesome let’s see it working! What’s with the cover or plastic cap on the end of the barrel?

    Yep, will get to that part...

    The white plastic barrel cap is just the std MIL barrel/sight protector.
