    Sad to say the only thing I had available at the time was a 1978 romy g. To be honest its not that bad to build. Now would I trust it in an all out war. NO , trigger feel is nowhere near a normal ak. Took a lot of adjustments to make the trigger feel good to me. Alot of people say things fell off or got loose during firing. Not sure how they put things together myself.

    All the parts are rock solid secure and I also used red loctite on all threads.This was the kvarr bullpup kit ,so it probably fits better than some of the rest.

    Sad to say its a m70 on a orf receiver. Took alot of work but in the end I am happy with it. So I guess thats all that matters.

    On the folders, I was orginally looking for romy folders but came across the unissued germans so I used them. Figured they went good with the east german furniture build. To me the east german folders look better made. But it could be just me.

    I will try and get a few more pics up over the next couple weeks. Got a little over 15 builds to finish for my personal collection at the moment. That range from yugo's to alot of custom stuff I felt might look cool.There will be some at least one never before seen custom m92 in the works ( its 3-4 weeks out before i finish it). I can build a good solid ak and dura coat it in a few hrs. But the wood work kills me. I hand sand everything. Steel wool in between coats of stain and in between coats of oil. Takes 3 days plus on work of handguards. I usually wait and try and knock out 2-3 sets at one time though.

    yea i hear you on the woodwork!real time consuming
    its taking me over a month to do one set
    sanding takes a lot specialy if theve been abused and scribbled on
    im using a poly stain with a bit of red paint mix and steel wooling betwwen coats-shelac a few coats-then spray over with gloss laquer
    waiting for the shelac and laquer to dry and cure takes a while
    but when its done itll look like glass!!
