They have both for 19
If mine is any indicator, they are easy to drill and don't require much fiddling. I am glad I went this route, instead of a Nodak, b/c I believe a couple of my front trunnion holes were drilled funky, and would not have worked with a pre-drilled receiver. The Ace Gunco template worked great on it.
Sportsmans guide version is crap. read this.
I CANT SEE THE NEXT PAGE UNLESS I POST. ERRRRRRR
I pasted a copy of the ACE template to one of my Polish blanks and powered up my $59 HF drillpress.I compaired it to a NDS3 I have and it looks close enuf.Still working on mounting the rails.
SOON-We already lost the war. You are the resistance.
The drilling jig that akbuilder sells for these blanks is slicker than snot on a door knob.
It's deadnuts on and is a very worthwhile investment if you are going to be doing more than just 1 or 2 of these blanks. You can drill all 5 TG holes, both axis pin holes, the safety and CS holes all with just one set up.
Yes I had one of those jigs to use on a few blanks. My first blank I used the ace temp, and once I got the jig I drilled it again to see how close the holes were. I screwed that one up, got some eggs on it. It took only 15 minutes to drill my other two blanks. I'm going to use one for a pistol build and the other for a Polish under folder. Did anyone notice that Cope's has a Polish 5.45 blank as well? I already have a wz88, but it just might be worth getting a few of those blanks for some frankenbuilds.
The Ace template has the fire control group axis pin holes located good enough to work but none of the available templates I've seen have them located the same as factory AK's. All of the templates I've seen have had the center support rivet holes labeled too large. Measure the rivet shank diameter.
