Building M25 replica

1944 6
Hi Guys,
I've been searching and reading everything I can on the forum for a while now as well as other places and have zero'd in on building an M25 replica.

I've been collecting USGI parts for a month or so and have (or will have) pretty much most of the critical parts now - mostly TRW.

I'm looking for the experts to check me out on my plan and provide any words of wisdom. Here's what I'm looking at building:

LRB lugged receiver
Kreiger Heavy barrel
Smith enterprises scope mount
Leipold M3 scope
McMillian M3A stock with desert camo
Unitized gas system and other NM mods
All USGI TRW parts

This will not be a field rifle but rather is intended as a high quality piece that get's to go to the range occassionally.

What am I missing?
It's been suggested I go with Kreiger's new medium contour barrel - any thoughts?

Thanks,
Ron

If you want an accurate copy of the M25 you need a Brookfield Precision Scope Mount, Spring Guide, Gas Piston and a Barnett barrel. Optional is the Brookfield Stock Liner, they were built with and without it.

Otherwise what you build will not resemble an M25.

I have the Brookfield Spring Guide, if you decide to replicate the M25. The Scope Mount and Gas Piston are sometimes on eBay.

What Lawdog posted is correct. By definition an M25 has those three Brookfield items as being the design specification. If those three are not included, it isn't an M25.
