    Note that I did a little welding to the bolt carrier when I shortened the front section by about an inch. It is best to make the cut and splice close to the front. Even when using a brass rod inside the carrier to align the pieces there will be some grinding required on the inside the smooth out the weld. I managed to reach inside with a small dremel stone but it was barely within my reach. I was just lucky it didn't turn into a PITA that takes hours to fix. "I'd rather be lucky......"

    I think the AK Builder flats were designed to follow the build method detailed on the Lichtenburg Research site. My magwell was located further forward. Either way you put it together its a fun gun!

    I have used flats and several other items from AK Builder and I have always had good results.(As long as I don't screw up.)

    I thought it would be good to add a link to the thread with pics of the finished pistol.

    I took it out to the range yesterday and it ran just fine. The point of impact was too far off to the left. The front sight wouldn't adjust for it so after I got it home and cleaned up, I very carefully bent the barrel to the right by 0.1 inch. that should bring the group back to center and I can keep the front sight centered. I will check it out on the next trip to the range.

    When will you sell a parts kit? Because that ammo is cheap!

    I am just a hobbyist. Any of the commercial guys out there are welcome to jump in! This did take a bunch of work. Turn and sleeve the barrel, custom gas tube, custom gas piston, etc. All a labor of love.

    Nice build! Now I know why I bought all of those spam cans of 7.62x25.
