    One nice thing about top quality tools like you mention is that if you ever decide that you are done with them, you wil have no trouble selling & getting your money back. You might even turn a profit if the vendors are backordered.

    I was also about to start my own thread asking about the easiest way to build an AK from parts kits. I live in CA is this even an option for me to buy a 100% reciever here?
    If not I have family one state over in NV. I can always go stay with them for awhile. I know they dont have any trouble with owning , building , buying , ect anything to do with the AK and its variants.

    LowJ,

    Since you live in the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia you may wish to consider what might happen if you get the itch to take you build out to the range. Consider this: http://www.jgsales.com/advanced_sear...tion=1&x=8&y=7 Its a pump action AK and Kali friendly.

    Yeah thats a cool pump action version. But would you, could you, handle only owning that bastardized variant of a truely brilliant semi-or even full automatic ak47? instead of just moving over to gun friendly nevada and bypassing the socialists attempt to keep my clip underfull and hard to aim by pumping the action every shot?

    I cant... reno here i come...

    Im in the middle of doing my first build, I knew and know nothing about ak's and how to build them. I picked up a yugo parts kit, already disassembled and sandblasted, which at first I thought may make it harder to do, but know im really happy it was taken apart and sandblasted. There are so many how to build sites it was really easy to find out how to do it, and with limited tools the disassembly was one of the things im glad I didnt have to do.

    I also found a prebent and pre welded rails with template stuck on the receiver from Red Hot Gun Deals!!! which will really help me out, in building the receiver. Im doing a screw build since I have no idea what im doing, then plan on doing another in rivets, and then redoing my screw into rivets later. Im just waiting on some critical parts to show up, but im half way done.

    Im really excited to get this finished, and will post pics in the future. Looks like total cost of the whole build including new tools bought will be around $700. Its always fun buying new tools.

    At $64 each for the RHGD "blank" (and I use the term loosely, that's an actual receiver IMHO), with no BATF letter stating that they are NOT a receiver, still in need of drilling and heat-treating, why not, instead,

    Order a complete, top-of-the-line fully built receiver from NoDakSpud at $60 shipped. Find a local FFL01 to do the transfer and you'll not only benefit from the best receiver on the market, you'll have the machine work done and no worries that ATF might some day send you a letter demanding your "illegal" receiver be delivered to them.

    As a new member, I am in awe of all the knowledge and expertise I am experiencing on this forum! I started out inocently purchasing one built AK on Gunbroker.com, received it on Sept. 11. Then I got the BUg! Ijust recieved my first Romanian parts kit from IO Inc. It is real nice. Then I turned around and bought two 100% receivers from IO Inc @ $44.00 a piece! My question is this are screw builds in any way "looked down upon" as inferior? And do you use locktite? I am an aircraft mechanic, and have driven countless Aluminum rivets, but I do not have any tools(like the Harbor freight bolt cutter conversion). The little voice inside says rivet, but for my first one I was considering screws, since rivets are what we A&P's call "One Way Fasteners" (very unforgiving if you f*&k it up)! Any advice?

    screws vs rivets

    There has to be 100 posts on this.

    I would suggest, KomradeAK, you make the acquaintance of the search feature for all the esoteric opinions. Bottom line is either will work.

    Thanks Winn R. I did, I see, and your right! Now I also did a search for Plinker's Tools rivet jigs and such within the forums. As far as I can figure, the last reference to their availability was in 2007. Does anyone know if the maker of these tools is still manufacturing?
