Is making a siyum on a chelek (section) of the Rambam good enough to absolve one from fasting taanis bechoros, or allowing one to eat meat during the nine days?

I have never seen someone make a siyum on a chelek of the Rambam like seder Zamanim for example. Has anyone seen this before?

On a side note, the Rambam himself writes at the end of each topic in a seder brich rachmanh dsayon.

    "I have never seen someone make a siyum on a chelek of the Rambam like seder Zamanim for example. Has anyone seen this before?" Yes, although I'm not sure that helps answer this question. – Yishai Jun 28 '15 at 18:05

In Guidelines by Rabbi Elozor Barclay and Rabbi Yitzchok Jaeger, both for the 3 Weeks and for Pesach, they say that to make a siyum that permits meat & wine in the first case or breaking the fast Erev Pesach, it must be on one of the following:

  1. A seder of Mishnayot (Zeraim, Moed, etc)
  2. A masechet of Gemara
  3. A sefer of Tanach learned b'iyun (which they do not define)
  4. A chelek of Shulchan Aruch

So, at least according to them, no, a chelek of the Mishneh Torah will not suffice.

    interesting, what is the difference between a chelek of SA and a chelek of Rambam.? – kouty Dec 25 '16 at 8:11
