    Default 3 builds finished, almost!

    Just finished my 2 Polish builds, a Tantal and underfolder. these were premium kits from Akron Armory. they went together easy although the bbl pins were a real bear to get out, had to drill one of them. They worked right from the first round. test fired all of them sunday. They are parkerized black with shooters solution park chemicals and pre black with caswell plating black oxide solution.
    The G3 still needs to be parked, I am getting a bigger tank to do it in. this was my first G3 and it was a real easy build. About 2.5 hours total, it shoots great, ran about 300 rounds through it so far.

    Very nice. I was chicken about building a G3 since I don't weld. I bought a Century built G3. It is one of the ones that work.

    I am anxious to parkerize the G3, it shoots great, but looks real raty at the moment.

    pirate -- I spent the evening running bolts into and all thread through the mg setting it up for welding.

    I'm following your thread. My thanks to you.

    Hope to test it again today or tomorrow with the FAL fcg and 2 peice firing pin. This has been a long drawn out project. welding the receiver is the easy part. good luck with the welding, post some pics when you are done!!

    pirate-- not to hijack your thread, but how did you determine the amount of space to leave between the burns when setting it up in the fixture?

    Winn, did you read the tutorial I posted on the 42 site?
    Basically, the kerf in the cuts is about 1/4", for the back cut install the top cover to get the length, then square it up and tack in place. for the center cut set the parts up on a fixture similar to the one I made, and with the trunnion in place align the front and rear halves, sighting down the receiver to make sure it is straight, and bothe parts are touching the trunnion where the little bulge is.
    for the front cut, install bbl and eyeball the part, tack, check alignment and finish weld. The overall length should be close to the lenght posted in my tutorial.
