Hey guys. Got that cetme K front end in that I picked in the WTS section. This is purely just a project that I quite frankly don't care if it ever works or not. But I figured I'd give it a fair shake. Let me start by saying I'm not a machinist nor even a gun smith. But I'm handy with tools. So we'll see how this goes. I picked up an FMP carrier to go with this front end. The cocking tube is shot. Someone cut it off too far forward to use again. I'm hoping this is gonna be as easy as just buying a53 cocking tube. But I have no idea how long a 53 tube is. Can someone please measure it from stem to stern and let me know what you get? Thanks guys.
