16Turbo's Rifle

I would like to examine that rifle in good sunlight before I really gave an opinion. Given the overall condition of the rifle and the stock color, I would have to assume it was refinished (likely the metal also). Svazarm trained thousands of young people using those rifles; yet you never find a Svazarm marked rifle that shows any wear at all. Some of those rifles likely survived in such fine shape that they did not need a refinish at all - I don't think those will have the dark red stock color (wiped on) that you describe. I very much wish someone had the background to know exactly the details of the surplus process and the number of rifles Brno Aeron bought (and refinished). Denny was a friend and had some insight through his contacts with people "in country" and his relationship with them. Much of his information was invaluable to the story of the Brno rifles - some of it may have been flawed. We don't have many sources to count on for information. I hope that Paul Tulley eventually publishes his information and research on the .22 rifles.

LOL! I guess I really screwed that guess up. Thanks for the clarification.
