From what I can see in the images, it is just a raw casting.
So, definitely not an 80% . I also believe no one would invest
in the molds to cast an item that might sell a half dozen.
My guess it came from an original mold , either a reject or stolen.

Start building those and you could end up with free long term room and board.

I have some dusty blueprints for the receiver and the rotor somewhere.

I think those 25 penciled in numbers are flaws in the casting.

I fired one years ago when surplus ammo was cheap. It was fun to shoot but I couldn’t afford to feed one these days.

Maybe spend a little of the kids inheritance, just a thought. I am joking! Spend all of it. :-P

 

 I found the blueprints which consist of about 10 sheets of 2' x 3' dimensions for the older General Electric receiver and the rotor. Complicated heat treatment procedure on the rotor alone would probably detour anybody from completing one. 

 

I take back the flawed numbers. They seem more like the machining operations that need machining.
