How much do you figure it'll cost you in the end (minus fancy things like scopes or laser lights)?
Just under $400. That's a lot more than the last one that was built in the days of $79 parts kits. Back then they gave you everything including all the full auto parts, I got rid of that stuff before I bought a receiver, prison does not appeal to me. I got the parts kit from Classic for $279 and the receiver from Copes distributing for $49. I have a Tapco double hook trigger and hammer, gas piston and pistol grip on the way.How much do you figure it'll cost you in the end (minus fancy things like scopes or laser lights)?
If it were not for riveting the AK is actually simpler and easier than an AR. This is only #2 for me but if it was difficult I would remember it being a PITA.Cool I always wanted to do an AK build and but never have. Did some conversions on Saigas but that doesn't get you into dealing with the trunnions and some other stuff I don't know if I'd want to mess with.
