    I'm getting ready to do my first AK build, an AMD65. I'm still looking for a barrel though.
    You didn't show pics of how you did the short rivets it the barrel trunion, what's the trick there?
    I used Plinkers jig

    If I put in a pistol rear trunnion is it considered a pistol AK?
    First to answer the bold parts of your questions. If you have the receiver already and it was registered as a rifle receiver you cannot make it a pistol, if it was registered as only a receiver then you can.

    As for your other question about the stock, is the receiver just a standard receiver (without the notch cut in the right side for the folder)? If it doesn't have the notch cut then you can put in a standard stock tang and use a fixed stock.

    You can also use the modified bolt cutters for these rivets.

    It just states "Reciever" on my reciept. Got ahold of OOH and they build them as "recievers". So I think Im good to go there.

    It does not have the cut for the folder. I was looking at the ACE block/trunnion where I can use and ACE folding stock on it. What I was hoping to do is build it as a pistol buil. Dont mount a stock on it. Then later one day maybe register it as an SBR.

    I built my AMD-65 and found this thread afterwards. Very nice thread.I used AK-Builder parts and tools as much as possible.I did use a Nodak receiver. My AMD went together soooo easy,much easier than my 3 romanian builds. There are 2 different long brakes for the short barreled AMD one is fron cncwarrior which tapers down to barrel size and also has 3 blast jets(holes) to direct the muzzle downwards. The other is from AK-Builder and is straight all the way back (kind of like a car -15 or colt commando) I eventually used the AK-builder brake (i liked the end result looks of the rifle better). I did not use the slot for the rear swivel. I drilled a hole just below the slot and mounted a threaded stud for a detachable sling swivel and it came out fine....GS
