The kits are completely virgin. No extractor cut, no pin locations or handguard retainer slot. No rivet locations in the trunnions., no barrel pin locations.,nor the rear folding stock inlets.
A good bit of work for an experienced builder with tools or a pretty pricey build if sent to an AK smith for assembly.
No markings or serial numbers.
Actually the extractor cut is less exacting than the other component placement, drilling and reaming of the pins and the barrel pin etc as well as headspace guages of course. Time patience and tools can get r done. The rear trunnion cuts/holes are not easy but can be done with drills and hand toold (Dremel & files etc.).
Just a lot of fitting and work and the right drill bits and reamers etc.
Virgin builds are a lot more work.
but their virgin... everyone likes virgins..
I may had get few of these

I understand these are virgin kits and will need some work. My question is: Do these kits have all the parts required to build minus the receiver? I hate buying a kit and then having to chase down a part because "what came in the bag is what is in the bag, and that's it, oh and good luck with your build."
If someone who bought a kit could confirm what is pictured on the website is exactly what you get. Thanks
They should.My question is: Do these kits have all the parts required to build minus the receiver?
But to comment on the rest of what you said, that's all up to the company, if they suck your shit out of luck. Do a Google search on Black Thorne and see what you come up with.
