Just got a couple flats from http://www.ak-builder.com. Haven't tried using them yet, but they look good, and I've heard/read good about them.

I'm reading Doc's thread now and searching for receivers and compliance parts. That thread has been dead for a while and it doesn't seem like anyone has built with parts they've procured lately.

I'm open to suggestions if I don't orders something before I get a response.

The easy way is a NDS-3 receiver from nodak spud.

The manly way is with an AK-builder flat.

I'd love to do it but I'm not sure that my studio apartment contains sufficient tools.

I guess I'll get the NDS-3 ordered up tomorrow.

Any tips specific to this kit?

Weld it up, or you could do like I do and assault some bolt cutters with a grinder to make a rivet squeezer out of them.

Some cocksucker stole my welder from my mother's house (she let the asshole rent it and then he stopped paying, we evicted him and he came back when nobody was there and cleaned out the garage), so I'm willing to bet that "welding" is not going to happen on this build.

Needless to say, it looks like screws for me, which I don't think is going to be so bad, anyway.

Having done a couple of weld builds now, I wouldn't consider doing it any other way. It easily takes 1/4 of the time that a screw build does. The couple I've done I've used Ohio Ordinance receivers on because they are easy for me to get. I've had no issues with the OO receivers.

Not true at all.


I built an M70 a few months ago, and just finished up an M64, and am currently building another M64. Only difference is these are milled reweld builds...

And I built a stamped romanian kit just before the M70 build...

I got 8 of those kits a few weeks ago. All have matching numbers and are in very nice shape. I didn't get "new" kits like strong but they are very nice. Bores were/are dirty but look shiney as chrome when cleaned with just solvent and a patch, lands/grooves are very sharp. I'm definitely happy with mine, have no receivers yet but have demilled, drilled,tapped two and I will weld the rest for sure. I reallly wanted the 145$ underfolders but I live in the PRK.
As for J&G, they shipped in a day.

My last one, I replaced the stock, hand guard, pistol grip, muzzle break, and FCG. (in addition to the receiver of course) Used an NDS-1 receiver.

I got a couple of the 269 parts kits as well. One will be sold, either complete or still in kit form. The other will probably be a more "true to form" build to keep. I'll go with the gas tube piston, FCG, US slant muzzle break, and a pistol grip. Then I'll cut off the donkey dick front grip.

Anyone ever just weld the new gas piston in place instead of drilling/pinning it?

Yes. I prefer to do the rivet/pin method, but you can also weld them in. I believe Century welded them in on many of their kit builds...

And welding them has led to reliability issues on century rifles.

Just use a damn roll pin if you're too lazy to bash a piece of welding rod in there with a hammer.

Alright, so maybe you fawkers aren't such a bad influence. I'm ordering flats and a jig as we speak, and my club is going to be a bunch of college students with bullet hoses within a few weeks.

I love you fawkers.

And I've got 100 mags on the way now, and Misty says hi to all of you out there.

What jig are you guys using?

Uh huh... Sure you did. I'm sure that's the case. Sorry I wasted your time.

i cut the line where it needs to be bent with a wizz wheel 1/2 way thru the flat, folded by hand and welded the seam up. flap wheeled it and it came out perfect!

just need to heat treat (torch w/ used motor oil) on the pin holes and weld it to the trunions.

Well, I've got EIGHT people building these things in my club now. I can't believe it. My club is turning into a bunch of bullet hose-toting bad asses.
