    Default AMD Pistol First build

    Well after about 2 months of researching, buying and waiting I am finally starting my first AK build. I am using a like new AMD kit I got from AKa Tom and an OOW receiver. I really wanted to do a weld build but not having access to a TIG welder I decided to rivet this one.
    The parts are like new and I want to retain thier finish and parkerize the receiver. The kit I have came apart almost to easy. A couple hits with a 16 oz hammer and punch pushed out the barrel pin. I then used the pulley puller method to remove the barrel. I drilled out the rivets with a bench top drill press.
    I decided to add a removable sling swivel to the back, So I made a plate to fit the rear trunion and used a unibit to make the hole, it has a radius on it and works perfectly for the swivel. I had a local welder weld in the plate, he kind of over did it with the heat but the swivel still works.
    I met GTBeharty and he kindly crimped my rivets for me as my tools haven't gotten here yet.
    The next step is to dry fit all the internals, and stone the slides to remove burrs etc, then blast and parkerize the receiver, rivet on the trigger guard, then final assembly.

    Looks like your almost there! Can't wait to see it finished and get a range report

    By the way i used the FCG that came with the kit on my pistol and like it just fine.

    I got the idea from you Steelcore, only I didn't modify the rear trunnion to center the swivel. It is offset about 1/8" to clear the notch.
