    I don't know much about metal work...

    I found a single lug online, I'll send you a PM.

    You may want to talk to this guy and explain your problem... he is really good and always is fixing complex jacked up subscribers projects... may be worth talking to him.

    To me it comes down to is the rifle a shooter or collector? If the lug is matching, I would have it repaired but treated properly. You can always have a second set for shooting and include it with the rifle if you ever sell. I know lots of people who shoot use gas/spring kits and even spare locking flap kits as these and the top cover are the parts that can be damaged or may cause damage.

    This one is definitely a shooter. Initials scratched on scope rail, non-matching bolt and carrier group, varnished stock, etc.

    I did find one of these to put on it:

    If a MM bolt, just replace the locking flaps. Repro would be cheaper but eventually pick up a set of originals.

    I have a set of original German WWII locking lugs. Not mint, will work.
