    Default 7.62x25 Blowback Progress

    Finished my gas op x25 a few weeks back but still haven't taken it to the range. Figured I would get the blowback done as well, and take them both. This is AK-Builder flat, AMD 65 based pistol trunnion, AK74 front trunnion, EOD bolt/carrier and magwell, as well as a bunch of crap laying around the shop. Plus I put an old copy of an early M16 3 prong flash suppressor on it, just because the barrel looked so plain. She's ready to test fire. Cycles beautifully by hand.

    Looks nice, can't wait to hear your test firing report.


    akfiend, he could put an HK rear sight on the dust cover, but then you have to make sure it's a tight fitting cover.

    AKfiend, as Coils said, I am planning on a G3 rear sight to go along with the front. Pretty much just for looks though, as I will probably be shooting this one more from the hip than anything else.

    Thanks Coils. I can't wait to test and report!


    Rapid, yeah, I decided to do one each gas op and blowback. See how they handle and feel as compared to each other. I really like them both. As soon as I get the gas op tested and tuned, I plan to SBR it. It's basically an AK version of an MP5. Great close quarters weapon.

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks Shooter!

    AKfiend, I missed your question earlier about screws or rivets, sorry. It's a screw build. On my "beater" builds, I like to do them with screws first, until I fine tune all of the "non standard" parts, then if I'm bored, I go back through and rivet it. (Usually a year or so later. LOL.)

    No problem Coils. I actually purchased the EOD bolt and magwell from a Gunco member used. It was at one time in a firing weapon, so it should perform well. (fingers crossed) I thought about maybe spec'ing out both the magwell and bolt for future reference for folks. I don't reckon that EOD has any kind of ownership to the parts. I hope to report back after this weekend!

    I need to get moving on one of these conversions....... Got most of the parts, but need to find the time.
