    If I were to buy one of these, and I think it would be a very fun toy, could I pay one of you to bend it for me? I can do all the welding, I am a tig welder by profession. I don't have access to any of the jigs and have never bent one anyway. Thanks, Josh

    No can do. Your best bet is to buy a pre-bent reciever or find someone that has the tools and will let you use them to do the work.

    yea unfortunately the bending of the receiver is the main part that you have to do on your own. There are pleanty of threads on here about making jigs and what not, but more than likely there is a member near by that has one you can use.

    although I think the drums would be a lot more fun
    Of course the drums would be more fun, but I have a few stick mags too and would like to use them also. Thanks for letting me know they can work, I must over looked that when I read the info.

    Anyone got Curtis's email? I used the one listed on the site (Curtis@ak-builder.com) and it bounced back.

    The standard Ak builder flat bending jig will not work with this flat without considerable alternation

    Other than a large hole for the magazine, this is a standard AK flat. Exactly what considerable alterations are required?

    I spoke with Curtis yesterday, there is some clearance cuts that must be made, also, although I am unclear why, the mag opening apparently wil not form correctly with the stock flat jig. He also tells me the flats are not yet in stock, and still need to be sent to the fabricator. I think that unless he can make a retro fit to the present jig my already on, then the flat may not be an attractive option and the cuting up of a standard AK flat more logical.

    After taking a little longer look at the flat, the only thing I can think of with the magwell cut, would be that it could twist during the initial push into the form. I looked at some of my pics from my own bending operations, and there is a slight bowing of the flat as you work back and forth. I'm guessing that the flat would probably buckle just above the magwell cut during the initial forming.

    It might make more sense to supply the flat without the magwell cut. That should solve any buckling issues. A flat without the magwell dimples would also look much better when finished. An accurate magwell template using the triggerguard and front alignment pin holes would be a good idea.
