    Sweet !

    I think you're really gonna like shooting the 5.56 Yugo. Very pleasant recoil.


    Did I do that?

    Test firing went really well. No hickups, operated just like an AK should. It really beat up the brass is about my only complaint but I think that is normal for these guns. I didnt do any accuracy testing cause of limited ammo supply but as soon as I get some extra cash I will buy up some ammo and test it out.

    You should be able to tune the gas system down a bit to keep the brass from getting damaged too bad.

    Cluttered is when you cannot see any sign of the table below all the stuff you have piled on top of it.


    Did I do that?

    Nope, I think the only pic I put up was in the "using C-clamps with a flat jig" threadand you could see about half of it.

    Mine's not that bad but it seems like I always have to move something if I want to work on anything bigger then a large pistol.

    My bench is always cluttered, it's small (2'x4') and has a vice at one end and a small drill press at the other. Sooner or later I'll build a bigger one and find a new use for this one.

    My 223 build is denting the brass as well. I have the minimum gas port size that it will run at. I am also looking for a solution to dented brass. I reload and this is getting to be a real problem. Nice looking build by the way
