    Default First build on stamped receiver

    Hi Everyone,

    Just completed my first AK build from a Hungarian parts kit on a stamped receiver. It was a lot of fun starting with a receiver blank and eventually coming up with a completed (and working) rifle. I took it to the range and it worked flawlessly. The receiver is still bare metal, so I have that to complete yet.

    Of course, I couldn't have done it without all the help I found on this site. I was able to find an answer to every question I had somewhere on this site. Thanks Everyone!!!

    Here are a couple pics:

    Awesome work !
    I liked the Hungarian models too, but couldn't justify throwing $180 at another fixed-stock AKM. I like yours though ! Looks great

    Thanks for all the compliments. I have a Yugo kit that will be next, and then a Polish underfolder after that.

    I'm definitely hooked!!!

    great job GaryS, I just finished a romy looks like yours the only question I have is did you heat treat the fcg holes? I can't see the discoloration.

    I heat treated the rails , but I didn't heat treat the fcg holes. Is that something that's recommended?

    Looking good. Yeah, you need to heat treat the FCG holes, as well as the ejector. They'll tend to egg out after 500-1000 rounds if you don't. There were some AK's built in the late 1980's from Chinese parts by B-West of Tucson Arizona. They had problems because they didn't treat the FCG holes or the ejector. The receivers would tend to break apart after time, as well as the FCG holes egging out.
