Hello all and thank you in advance for your input.

I "saved" a 59/66 from Bubba.....all I need to finish getting her back to factory is a cleaning rod, a wooden handguard, and a handguard hold down clip / ferrule. Any assistance in locating these parts is greatly appreciated.

Good going on the resto. The ferrule is going to be the toughie. They're getting scarce. Might see if a Tapco gas tube and HG will swap out for wood. They pop up on fleabay but are $pendy. PAX

I found a cleaning rod, I figured there'd be some ferrules somewhere. The one I got is ripped, where they forced it off over the pin/rivet. It stays put when locked into the rifle....but isn't right. I have a cleaning rod purchased.

I found a ferrule...now looking for a yugo handguard, may use a cheese grater one. There is another ferrule on ebay at the moment.

Getting Closer

Its gratifying when you bring an old girl back to their original configuration.
There are a lot out there to be saved
