    Default My first build .. Khyber pass ak

    Saw a post from rob pincus on Instagram that he was holding a supAR bowl build party. where him and some guys got together and built ar's while watching the game. I thought it sounded like a cool idea so I gathered my ak stuff and finally put together my khyber pass kit


    brought the press to my spare room so I could watch the game while building



    And started riveting



    Almost there



    Finally the completed product just need to figure out what finish to put on it and test it



    this is my first build but won't be my last

    Nice first build! Dedicated first timer for sure, dragging the press inside and all!! LOL Is that a Polish kit you used?

    Kyber pass builds need Kyber pass finishes. Well worn with decrative ribbon and tape. Some brass tacks and copper wire.

    It's a complete kit from ak-builder.com they also sell them separate https://ak-builder.com/index.php?dis...oduct_id=30345

    I kind of cheated with the barrel populated and headspaced but being my first build I was willing to cheat a bit I was really happy with the kit I double checked the headspace it was perfect and the kit I received was all matching numbers

    Nothing wrong with that. Nice build, and I definitely can relate to the press in the bedroom. I loved that. Yeah, you're hooked. LOL. Good job, and thanks for posting your pics.

    +1., some tribal work.,


    Srboodtjunkie., nice first build and interesting work shop area. Warm and with the accessories. I guess during the Super Bowl there was not much to dstract you with the blow out score. Nicely done.
