Nice looking build.
I finished another build this weekend. It is some sort of hungarian kit. The front end looks like a AMD63 except for the wood handguards.
It is built using a bent metal blank using a macman dimple jig. G2 FCG, tapco piston and FSE (modified to bring it to legal length) muzzle brake.
Nice looking build.
Life Is For Service
So far this is my favorite build because of the wood and shorty look.
The finish on the wood is as far as I know stock. I haven't touched it. I believe they came off a SA 85 if I am remembering the model correctly but came with the kit. Other than a few coats of tung oil the wood will stay the they way it is.
On the AK74 brake I enlarged the exit hole to 3/8 and tig welded the funnel looking extension on. It is kind of a cross between a AK74 and a krink brake. I even machined the notches for cutting wire although I don't think that feature will be used much.

I used brownells aluma hyde 2 matt black on it. After it fully cures in about 2 weeks it will match the factory pain on the barrel assembly pretty good once I oil it.
Did you bleach the stock?
Looks Very Good, but damn that barrel looks short. Are you sure it's 16"?
Very nice weapon! Is the stock pinned open? What kind of shot group you get at 100 yards?
Yep, it is actually 16 1/4 since some people have problems reading a tape measure.Originally Posted by Toten Kopf
Measured it with a cleaning rod till it touches the bolt.
Haven't fired it yet so I don't know what it will do. Not much time off right now plus i want the aluma hyde to cure fully before lubing it up.
Piece of metal inside the stock so it can't fold...... at least for another few weeks.
I didn't bleach any of the wood. It is how I received it. Belive it is elm if I remember right and just coated with oil of some sort.Originally Posted by yosuthnmasa
I am going to use a few coatings of tung oil on them.
