    Lightbulb Anybody build an AK like this?

    I found a website that sells 3 piece "flats". Instead of being bent in a jig, these are welding together where the bends would be.

    AK-47 receiver FLAT - 3-piece - fixed stock - Jack Squat's Flat Spot


    Seems like a good way to make a receiver, but I can't see it being strong enough. Does anyone have any experience with this method?

    They were popular before the bending jig was developed. Don't know anyone who's used them in years. Dimensions are a bit off on the outside, regular pins don't work.

    JackSquat has great products. The old three piece weld packs did not have top rails.I still have a few sets I bought from Sangrunhunter. I think Jacks have them pre bent allready. You should see his new layer sandwich AR lowers!
    BTW: the weld up AK receivers are VERY stout. Go ahead & try one . Nice to have something different than the rest of the Crowd.

    His Suomi magwell's are the cat's a$$.

    I used one in a rewelded Galil receiver to make a 9mm bullpup.

    Very thick and sturdy peices that snap together like Lego's.

    He's also got some other cool stuff, well worth it for what he charges.

    this concept was pre-internet the early ones the axis pins were standard, some guys even build aks with erector set type panals, long before flats that were bent early M-11 receivers came this way
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    It's still in the concept phase. No word yet as to when it will be released.

    Looks heavy, as long as you don't mind the weight.

    Jack Squat makes great products. Quick and reasonable shipping. I used one of his 3 piece flats to build a Bulgarian kit. I was really pleased with the results.
