    Default First build complete

    I just finished my first build thanks to all the members help. I used all home brew tools except for a long rivet tool. I am ready for build #2!

    Nice job. Too bad the kits are so damn expensive now.

    Thumbs up Excellent Job.

    Damn. Wish my first build looked half that good. Hell I just did my 25th build and I'm ashamed to show it.
    I have one of AK builders rivet tools like that and they are great.

    Did you say"HOME BREW"? I didn't think anybody made the stuff anymore. The last I made was about 6-8 percent, it will give you a hangover if not carefull. Now for your build; looks wonderful and I hope it shoots as good as it looks.

    Very nice, what did you use for the finish?? I need to get some picks of the 2 I've built so far.

    I used a satin sheen engine enamel. The barrel was not painted and it almost matches perfect. I will have to repaint after test firing. I had to redo some rivets.
