Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I have always liked the FR8. Here is one of mine.

Looks like the only thing you need is the FR8 bayonet. Here is the FR8 & the Cetme bayonet.

They are a blast to shoot (literally). I've got a couple...one with a pretty nice stock and one that some sap urethaned. I've got to get that urethane off one of these days.

My son and I shot the nice one after one of the silhouette matches. It took a little time to get used to the sights, but eventually we could knock down the rams @ 550 yards with some regularity.

The bayo came with the rifle when I got it. I never really got into obtaining bayonets for the various rifles. I always figured I could use the money to buy more rifles.
Since I've run out of room in the house for rifles, maybe I should start looking for proper bayonets for all the different rifles I have.

It doesn't work. It gives you more space to put more guns until you run out of room again. I know.

I remember the pic of the room you built.
I might have to buy a second house! I was looking at land east of me but maybe I should look for some with a house already in place.
