    Default Romainian on Armory 1mm

    This is the budget build.
    Romainian kit from Weaponeer GB= $106.47
    Armory USA 1mm = $ 64.50
    US pistol grip (?) = $ 10.50
    US floor plate/follower (RPB) = $ 1.00
    Some magazine (?) = $ 7.00
    G2 FGC (DPH) = $ 35.00
    -----------
    $224.47

    I had some left over rivets from previous builds and could have got away with using the original PG...oh yea add a cleaning rod for $5.00 and I used the selector stop from my Saiga conversion.

    I didn't finish anything, just put it together as it all came. I sanded the receiver and magazine a bit to give them some worn look. The action is very smooth and no bolt slop like with the OOW's.

    The Armory 1mm worked out great, the only issue was the non matching selector stop needed to be filed some for clearance. Overall I think I have about 4 hours in this and that was while I washing clothes so really had I concentrated on it maybe 2.5 hours..

    Hey congratulations on the successful build. What kind of receiver is that again ? Armory ? I've never heard of Armory. It looks like an Arsenal receiver, with the special-Ed dimples and all.

    How does it shoot ?

    Put a hotbarrel piston in it and put the original p-grip back on for the full color effect.

    Haven't shot it, just started it this morning.
    I don't know what I was thinking about the pistol grip. I could still meet 922r without the gas piston because of the floorplate and follower.

    Jose. it's my rifle and it is special!

    On the flip side I saw a guy post some pics of a georgous AK74. It was built with a 74M side folder and Arsenal USA receiver. Total cost was just shy of $2K!!! I'm not intending to flame this guy or post judgement, all of us are looking for something different. I was just surprised to see someone put so much into an AK.

    (BTW, I'm also guilty of putting too much cash into a 74 build but I'm way short of $2K.)
