So, after apparently long adue, or whatever..
some pictures, iv been a little slacker-ie on them.. but iv been drinking alot... and hanging out with my new girlfreind.. lol.. so thats why you waited.
also, takeing pictures < working on gun more, ya know?
modified rear trunnion to accept M249 SAW style butt stock, its CRAPCO, meant for a FAL, thus the long tube running through it... took awhile to get the angle just right.. and yes, i rock a sweet spatter norther tool cheapo welder.. i wont be doing the receiver work with this tho, i refuse to let quality parts like that get bad attention from a bad sloppy machine.
fabbing the doo-hicky... lol... charging handle guy, i did a rubbing of it instead of measuring everything out... because i dont care that much yet..
sorta layer out, the pile of crap above the gun, and under the barrel is excess weight i managed to cleave off, not including the large amount of grinding iv done on the front and rear trunnion.
this drill hole makes me sad
this one makes me less sad, considering its further away from the chamber.. thinking.. threaded plug? special porcelain heat resistant "lock tite" shit mentioned on weapon guild, and plug weld... wouldn't mind even putting a band over it..
the last hole should be super easy, considering im using a front sight, i'll probably just replace the whole band that they just drilled though, with a front sight.. of corse.... hell.. even if i consider keeping that much barrel.. i wouldn't mind chopping the size down to 18 - 20 inches... just right in front of the gas block duder... which cuts weight, thus why i used a SAW butt stock.. i want this to be a bastard PKM as much as it possibly can... and shoulder/ bipod fire it(have a bipod off of gunbroker on its way, yay), and i figure i wont be using it out to the maximum range of the round, and its a semi automatic belt fed already.. so... that what justify's my decisions..
anybody know what a normal PKM's barrel length is?
also, any jigs for sale for rewelding the receiver?
