    But if I walk in the swamp there is a hollow area there. Just have to keep my eyes open for rattle snakes.
    Very few neighbors here. If any are around I invite them to shoot. Solved the problem of disturbing the neighbors.
    Accuracy I do not know. But them always seem a little stiff after I build these AKs.
    About 40 or so rounds seems to smooth everything out.

    4th, I just recently built 2 Polish Underfolders too. One for myself and one for a buddy. Both of them had EXTREMELY tight upper handguards. I got the one off my buddy's gas tube after about 1/2 an hour. Mine took about 2 hours spread over about 3 days. I finally got it though. Then I shaved it down in the right spots to make it go back on easier. It's still stiff, but workable. The way I finally got it off of the gas tube was to wrap a soft rag around it, and as gently as possible squeeze it in the vise from the sides with the bottom facing up. Then turned the gas tube with a 12" adjustable wrench. It still took awhile, and I'm kinda suprised that I didn't crack the wood, but it came off without any damage.

    You did a good job on those 2. They look great. My buddy's turned out perfect, but I messed up 2 front trunnion rivets on mine. I was driving the barrel pin back out because I had borrowed one from an M70 kit while I was waiting for a new one to come in, and was swapping them out. I really need to pull the barrel and replace them, but I've been lazy.

    Post Thank you 2ndAmendican

    Know what you mean about the wood on these. Oh God was the upper frozen. I have broken so many trying to get that damn wood off I said to hell with it and just left it be.
    Probably could have worked it loose but I have no patience and would have heaved the damn thing in the canal if it broke.
    Been watching different post on guys having trouble with the barrel pin. I use AK-builders tool and put the 12 ton press to them.
    Couple sounded like a bomb going off when they busted loose, but they all come out.
    Good design Curtis has there. The tool has a rivet recess when lined up properly so as not to damage the rivets.
    Canted front sights were also mentioned. Both these sights are slightly canted, I just noticed.
    Strange they put so much quality into the construction of the Polish AKs. and have a somewhat pattern of canted front sites.
    I used NDS receivers and they really fell together in construction.
    Couple of little fubars "esthetically" here and there. But cycles and fires fine.
    Always put the good side to the camera when taking pictures.

    Your up late. You waiting for Santa.
    Yes I know what you mean. I really wish I grabbed more of the Polish AKs back in the day.
    I grabbed a lot of the Hungarians but skipped over the Polish. If we only knew.
    The zastavas also are real nice. Merry X Mas.
