    Default Latest Build..ORF "Poor Kit"

    Here is a picture of a folder (Arabic writing?) that I bought as a "poor kit". I put it together today using a flat that I bent on my jig. This is the first AK that I built using a home bent tapco flat. I will check headspace tomorrow and then pin the barrel. The mag fits a little too tight for my liking. I may just leave it as a beater (the battlefield pick up look).

    That's pretty nice looking for a poor kit.

    It turned out better than I thought it would. I am glad that the folding mechanism covers up the holes! They weren't perfect but they worked!

    I checked the headspace on the folder this morning and it was perfect. I guess I got lucky. I pinned the barrel and then cleaned it up. I sprayed the receiver with Alumninhyde II and hung it up to dry. I will post more pics when it is finished.

    Very nice.

    How much did you pay for the kit and what country of origin was it?

    I am not quite sure of the county of origin. All markings are in Arabic. I believe that the kit was $99.00.

    Nice work. One good thing about a "poor" kit is you do not have to worry about it. hunt in the rain and not get upset. fire and not clean rite away, no problem. I like no worry.

    No,
    The Krink is a US made one from DPHARMS. The folder that came with the gun was an odd ball that used a different trunion, so I used a folder from a Polish kit that I had.
