Thought Id share .This is a restored Polish KBK GN 60 . Resurected from a PLO kit . Oddly enough the kit had no serial numbers , completly scrubbed ,even the receiver stub was blank of markings . But its complete . I was told on one site that it was probably from Polish Aid to Seria during the cold war before the Israelis nabbed it on its way to the PLO . Dont know the truth in that ,but makes a hell of a good gunshow story ...LOL . The receiver is a USA made copy .

Image
Special tapired muzzle and special muzzlenut to prevent damage ,wont work on any other rifle . Special detent for locking on sight and launcher

Image

Image
Pic of gas valve knob to stop the gas from cycling the action so all the gas goes behind launching the grenade .

Image

Image
Front grenade sight mounted with launcher spiggot . Special 10 round blank only magazine , Polish field manual , spiggot wrench . I comes in a grenade canvas pack .I dont have in the picture that holds 4 grenades .

Image
Thick cushioned rubber butpad so its all comfy when it recoils very harshly .

Image

Image
Grenade carrying pouch ,holds manual ,tools ,launch equipment .and grenades .

That is really cool. Find anything you can launch with the launcher yet?

its a custom Firing line receiver .The guy at firing line had a few prototypes and I was lucky enough to get one . He deleted the sling slot cut out on the receiver since the KBK didnt have one , Placed the eagle insignia they use under the triggerguard , Engraved it with polish selector markings . slight alteration to the feed ramp so it feeds blanks reliably .

Its of the newer generation receiver ,I think they are in production now .I was able to get this one before anyone else had them. They said they were out of stock ,but I PMed the owner and since it was an odd rifle he was very helpful . .I have had it almost 2 years or more

22mm , But so is the Yugoslavian grenade spigot . So I an guessing it wasnt uncommon to use 22 mm in countrys that could manufacture their own arms without Soviet aid .
