    A relic with repro parts on it is neither one nor the other - would you REALLY be happy with that?
    I would hang out for the RELIC parts you need - they regularly turn up on Ebay out of the Baltic countries.

    should I spray paint it black exept the bakelite or will this ruin it?

    Hi,
    Nice relic MP40 you have, it would look a bit nuts with a nice clean barrel ect on it they just wont match up, as said i would look around for the relic parts to. I think we would all like to see it when you finish.
