haha, I had a feeling you guys might want to see.

Hopefully I'll try and post some pics up later tonight.

I bought the reciever, parts kit, double hook trigger package, and radlock a couple months back. If anyone else in ca is attempting to build one "legally", this is the way to do it

btw, I'm only about $350 into it so far... not bad seeing as I can't find one for less then $800 at any gun shop in my area

the last MAK 90 I bought here in Nevada was 150 off some guy out of his trunk- still in the box.....I like Nevada......Then again I had another guy trade me my mossberg shotgun (Retail 200) for his Sig 220 with 4 mags....Some good deals when you need them -


Lets see some pics?

Yeah, sometimes I really wish I lived in AZ. CA has some bs gun laws. After this first build, some friends and I are gunna get a 10 pack of flat recievers and build them in bulk. I might have to use them to barter

But yeah, didn't get the chance to do much on the ak tonight. Just removed the rivets from the front trunion... it took hours. My camera's acting up tho, so hopefully I'll get pictures up tomorrow. On a side note, I DID get a chance to pick up a bench grinder and a drill press for $50 for both =) score

I got a Romanian G kit that I am putting together right now. Next project will be a Krinkov pistol conversion or a Draco kit.

Dang, I'm trying. I finally got my camera working today, but the battery was wasted on it, and for some reason doesn't want to charge =(

I only had time to snap a few shots of my project truck earlier in the day... the battery didn't last till I got home, when I wanted to shoot some pics of the AK.

Fear not, I WILL post some pics up sometime this week when I can get my hands on a new battery. Until then, if you guys are bored, check out my truck I'm building! - http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70325

p.s. - Mustafa, that is the same kit I have. Romy G for the win

Alright, here we go... picture time

The ak all disassembled.


Matching numbers means no headspacing worries :D Also, I don't have any pics of the front trunion being whacked to death (to get the rivets out) or us pressing out the barrel with a 2 prong gear puller and a stack of pennies... I didn't know I was doing a build thread till after I did those things


G for romanian guard... not gangster


Barrel's pretty clean. Looks like whoever had this gun before me only put some test rounds through it


Tapco double hook trigger, sear, and hammer make it U.S. legal (plus the U.S. made reciever and U.S. made front muzzle break - needs to be 5 U.S. parts count)


Front trunion in the new reciever - no rivets yet




Wood's in pretty good condition


Magazines :D


All the front junk semi-together


teaser pic


The next time I'll be able to work on it will probably be thursday night. Pics to come over the weekend

That's pretty cool. I like how you mentioned the 922r compliance.

Yeah, I really don't want to go to all this effort just to have it taken away from me by the blm just cuz I forgot like, 1 PART or something. And you know they'll do that too...

freakin' ca gun laws, man

On that note, I also forgot to mention I picked up the AK Raddlock for it today.

It ain't just boys who love guns!
I go shooting at least 3 times a week.
That's a nice gun you got there.
Only thing close to AK I have is a Mini 14.
