    Default Another Romy 'G' brought back from the dead this weekend

    I have been involved in 5 builds before this weekend.
    4 bent flats, and one milled re-weld. All of which are still firing strong.
    Today I got to see my good friend's first build test fired.
    Over 200 rounds down the pipe with really good accuracy, and only a slight file modification needed within the first 10 rounds to round the front top of the pistol grip to allow free movement of the rear of the trigger (darn Tapco SAW grips).
    Rifle ran like a top after that.




    That makes number 6!
    Congratulations Tom on a job well done, and to me for maintaining my patience while tutoring, and picking up broken punches, drill bits, and taps (he took me to the hardware store afterward to stock me back up ).

    Right on Nico, I see the MIG welder got a little work on that build.

    Basicly yes, you can cut off the vertical grip and reshape it to your liking.

    The brake is a PWS-FSC-47.
    I have PWS-FSC brakes on a couple of my ARs, and really like them. I bought this one from a fellow builder a while back but liked the look of the slant brake on my rifles.
    My buddy needed a US made muzzle device for 922(r) compliance so I offered it to him since I wasn't going to use it. He accepted.
    I cut the front grip off of the original front handguard, and shaped it leaving a bit of a palm swell on the bottom. I also scrapped all the old finish off (woodworking scrapper blade), and re-finished all the wood for my buddy using Minwax walnut stain covered with 3 coats of Deft clear then 000 steel wool to smooth.
    I told him if he was going to replace the furniture I wanted it! It came out nice.

    Did not have access to a spot welder but I do have a mig. So you're correct. The rails are mig welded in to the receiver. Drilled a hole, and plug welded.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. My buddy was smiles from ear to ear on Sunday's test fire.
    Don't worry about me quitting building any time soon. I have another friend who picking up a Romanian underfolder kit which I will be helping him with next.
    I have to say I love the AK for it's simplicity, and ease of building.

    Nice, I got to build a Romy G some time. Its sacrilege to own as many AK's as I do and not to have one. lol
