    Had some odd parts, goobered up front sight, bayo lugs cut off, etc. Sniffed out some parts from various sources.

    I would say that the project was a success! That's a very nice looking Maadi. I think anyone would be happy to own that. It probably will mean a little more to you because of the work you put into it. Good Job!

    I didn't realize there was a 'crown of upper and lower Egypt' mark on those. (That's what's around the 93 )

    You beat me to it on the crown comment. I am an ancient "Egyptophile" and had never seen that mark before. Way cool.

    Thanks! I am pretty happy with it. Now I gotta find an Arabic marked rear sight leaf. That will be the finishing touch. :)

    Is that an INTrac KNOX TN marked MAADI? They were pumping a lot of them out back then. The price was $200 total back then.
