    Thanks Jerry -- The fcg pieces are still a do it yourself or do you know of a source?

    I missed the SGN write up on these. Did you see it?

    I helped Bradd (Hotbarrel) with the pistons and the original style muzzle brakes. I don't know what his current status is on parts, he may still have some in stock.

    I believe PanaceaBeachBum makes compliance parts, as does ORF.

    Of course OOW makes them however I don't know if they sell them separate of their "kit build kit". I don't know of others. Does Pirate make any?

    I believe I got hte SGN article in their annual. Is it the one where they review the OOW rifle?

    Jerry, The latest SGN has a review of the century and a note which I took to mean they'd covered a build in July and Aug.

    Seems the receiver prices are coming down and I've got the parts....

    Yes I'd definitely get on a receiver buy if you can. They are really nice and much easier to build than an average AK, since all you really need to do is weld the barrel extension/brake, press the barrel and set headspace. Everything else is "assembly"

    I was going to sell my 2nd kit but I'm really torn on whether to build a 2nd one. It has the stub so I need a rear section.

    I have a bunch of these from the 49.99 days. I have milled my own receiver but I will NOT do that again....

    What's the story on the locking pieces? Would a "4" be used for tighter headspace than a "5"?

    I'd wanna headspace it tight, allow for wear and possibly swapping out locking pieces if the headspace opens up a little bit. Also, when headspacing it, how do you press the barrel in with a gauge in the barrel, a lot of people say to not press on headspace gauges too much, but using a press sorta precludes this advice...

    On my two locking wedges, I read the "6" to be longer than a "4". Therefore, I believe the higher the number, the larger the wedge.

    Thanks. If I use new receivers now I'll use the lowest numbers on the best barrels. The worn barrels are more likely to be pulled by the time the headspace starts opening up.
