    Default Vltor semi PKM receiver assembly completed

    Completed the build up of the semi Vltor PKM receiver assembly. This thing is a beast of a stamped receiver. Used some Plinker's riveting tools that I modified and fab'd up a couple new riveting bars to fill in where Plinker could not go on the PKM. Rivets/receiver countersunk on the rear trunnion and barrel trunnion. Still need to make or buy the semi parts (modify bolt, bolt carrier and the FCG) to make this thing go boom. Here's a few photos.
    Sorry Pirate, didn't drag out the tripod this time

    - edited photos to better show receiver rivets

    Thanks guys for the kind words. This build is one I've really wanted to do for some time now.

    Haven't heard any word on when semi parts will be available. Been riveting, grinding, welding bucking bars and cursing all week putting this thing together. Need to check into when semi parts will hit the market. Also been toying with trying my hand at it - at least the concept seems straight forward (so much for concepts anyways).

    Not sure who still has the unissued Hungarian PKM parts kits. I got this one a while back. Saw Ammunitions store has the good condition Romanian kits. Could always but out a WTB ad on the sites and see what turns up. PK Firearms has the Vltor semi receivers and I understand Wise Lite will also have some soon. Hold on to your wallet if you take the plunge on this project - I'm in at around $2600 and still need the semi parts.

    Sorry, no in progress photos taken. Really just a straight forward rivet job. Problem is having to develop the unique bucking bars, etc as you go along. Plinker762 has been toying with the idea of producing some tools


    Did I do that?
