    Default My AMD-65 is alive....

    I finally got around to finishing up my AMD-65 build.
    I used one of the laser cut receiver flats. The thicker receiver makes the gun feel really solid. Riveting was done with the bolt cutter method.Finish is gunkote over parkerizing. Heat treated with torch & water.

    When I get my camera back I will take a pic of the rear sling swivel. The original swivel tab broke when I un- folded it. I made a new one from stainless steel flat stock. Building the swivel was easy. Getting a nice flat fold inside the rear receiver was a pain in the ass for what it was. I made a small jig to support the swivel and made a punch to press it flat on the inside receiver rail. The grips were stock with a little help. I put them in a zip Lock freezer bag with lacquer thinner overnight.
    It strips everything from the wood without any damage.
    I then put them in a clean bag with boiled linseed oil overnight. Wiped off the excess and let sit for a day.
    The final finish was truoil (birchwood casey). Buffed to a dull satin finish. My next build is a 1978 dated polish under-folder matched # and mint. It was a shame someone cut it in half but I would never have seen it otherwise. I have one more receiver ready to build on when I get time. Next to build,polish under folder,CZ-52 rework and a semi 1919 belt fed. Yeeha!

    Id really appreciate that, as well as many others im sure. Question, where did you manage to find an original swivel, and do you have a source for any more? I need one.
