Inter Ord does not have a stellar reputation in the AK biz. I'd expect fitment to need tweaking etc. I'd also expect most of the parts to originate overseas in some way or another. For an extra $40 i'd get a headspaced kit from Curtis at akbuilder, and get the flat and rivits at the same time.
Buy one and see for yourself. I would be buying one right now if I didn't have parts kits still waiting to be built, a home in the middle of a complete renovation, and a wedding in the fall... :laughing:
Alright I bought a couple of these kits, and am now looking at buying a bending jig and flats for them... I went to ak-builder.com and have their bending jig in my cart, but does anyone know what type of flat I need to complete these? I have searched high and low to see what kind of receiver IO uses on their guns, but haven't found anything that states it yet... I know I'm probably being a retard, but these will be my first AK builds, so I don't wanna fuck up and get the wrong receiver and make it harder than it needs to be.
EDIT: Would like to buy the flats from AK-builder.com since I will be ordering from them anyhow...
The choices I have on flats are:
And I'm assuming this parts kit will take a 1mm flat as it sounds like the 1.5mm ones will need lots of modifications to work...
EDIT #2... looks like a standard polish receiver will work with about any kind of AK with some modifications...
Ended up buying 5 polish flats without holes... and a bending jig. Will be doing spot weld builds. I have two of the kits pictured above, and ended up buying two more AMD 65 kits yesterday. I know I'll have to notch the polish receiver out for the side folder stock, but that oughta be easy enough.
