    Default My First Build, Romanian AKM-47 "G"

    I would like to give thanks to Gunco.net and the folks here for sharing their build info. Just today I finished fabrication, assembly and a three shot test fire. All three shots were flawless. Range session next weekend for thorough workout. My first AK-47 kit project. Classic Arms kit, used, all matching, great shape IMO.

    Tapco flat w/ holes, Tapco G2 single hook FCG, Tapco mag follower, AK-Builder rivets, cross tube, & muzzle brake (great items!). Precision Brand Tool Black for receiver finish.

    555th 1.60" bend jig plans, Plinkers concept of rivet jigs, made all my own tooling. HF press & CE spot welder.

    Thanks ALL........pretty proud of my first AK!

    And you did it while making all the tools! Kudos!!

    Thanks Guys!

    One goal I had was to have the rifle remain as original as possible appearance wise. Given that this one had been fired somewhere along its life, I think it looks that way. BTW, that's a Hungarian 20 mag in the photos. Looks great with the 30 mag as well.

    mauser,
    I think youl find the 20 rnd. mag better to use than the 30, the 30 tends to hit the pistol grip on the forend. looks good. muttman

    Nice job.....
    It's pretty exciting when you do your 1st build and take a box of parts and make a functional weapon....You did good!

    nice job
    Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Excellent FIRST build!!!! That's really a great accomplishment, considering you made your tools and built your own reciever. Rivets, Spotwelds and you left a nice original finish. Great job.
