    Default AKS 74U Project (Updated with PICS)

    The SBR stamp finally arrived. It was a long wait at 37 days door to door. I had to go the Trust methoud as my CLEO will not sign for NFA weapons. Great thanks to SALBO for his exellent sticky on the proper forms and how to fill them out. This made a great diffrence as this can be pretty confusing and there is a lot of misinformation floating around on how to do it. The rifle is now assembled and ready for test firing and then refinishing. Still have not made up my mind to stick with the origianl furniture or not. And the finish on the origianl HGs is really fragile and a bit dull at best. So, some changes might be made. Too bad its so hard to get stuff out of Russia these days as some Rusky laminated HGs would be nice. Looking forward to getting to the range.

    Thanks for the post with pictures. I've been pondering buying one of these for a while. It may give me the push to move ahead with the order.

    I cant say about K-Var's shipping as I ordered from Copes. The kit was $690 from Copes, I believe K-Var was $693. Copes shipping was $7.95. As I understand it Copes gets thier Bulgy kits from K-Var and these two are the only ones they are available from. I went with Copes as I have done busness with them before and always have been pleased.

    K-Var's website has a built in shipping calculater in their shopping cart, just plug in your zip code and you get a running total as you add things. IIRC, a kit usually runs around $15 in shipping from them. However, they do offer a discount if you join their online discussion forum, something like 7% off the total order.

    That is a sweet Krink! You don't have to wait for the form 1 to be returned before building it, you just can't make it an SBR yet. Have a friend hold the stock for you and build it as a pistol. When the paperwork clears retrieve your stock and install it.

    Nice Build!!! I am waiting for my approval to come back as well. Copes sent me an email several months ago with a special price (about 10% off). I took him up on the deal.
    God pulls my strings!!
