Is there a link on how to build the CZ26 somewhere?
I've got the kit, and the tube. Just looking for some info.
BTW, type 07/ClassII

hmmmm... I guess with the licenses in hand you could build a sample? Hmmm... I don't know of any instructions though. Seems like with the license would come the experience to build the thing?

LOL, they dont include courses on European machine gun restoration in the liscense packet.
The issue I wanted to know is how the reciever and the trunnion are secured.
I was hoping someone had built one before(sample or semi)

A lil bird once told me something about a nice TIG weld. Wait maybe I dreamed that.....

Hi, coctailer.  You escaped the OR HTF? :D

You might try contacting Troy Sellars at InRange -- I recall seeing a post sample cz for sale on his website a few years ago -- maybe he could give you some advice?

From what I have seen of the parts kit that where available, it was spot welded together. The pistol grip was spot welded to the tube aswell, as the trunnion. If rebuilding from a kit I'm sure by drilling out the spot welds and using a good MiG or Tig weld to fill in the hole while making sure to penetrate the weld into the tube would work fine and by dressing the weld with a file it should look like a factory built gun. The receiver stub that is left on the trunnion would probably be best to use a lathe and turn it down to remove from trunnion.
 hope this is a help to you
