Hey guys I am new here also.
Owned a WASR10 a few years back(that I paid $400? for), sold it out of haste for other toys and I'm regretting it every day. I am going to give it a shot at a fixed stalk build, I can't afford to buy a kit at the moment so I have been steadily acquiring parts(sticking to Rom since they are readily avaliable). I realize this will be more expensive all said and done but with the current climate I don't feel bad about building an arguably nicer gun for +/- $600 when I see this crap selling for $1200 on gunbroker.
I am going to attempt my own receiver. I don't have any experience in it but I consider myself above average for mechanical inclination/fabrication, plus I thoroughly enjoy building things.
This is a great site, pretty much every question I have googled has landed me here!
