Very nice rifle, and very nice for the 4th. Is that an ACE receiver or manufactured?

Where'd the fore end come from? I like it.

Is that an AMD65 or AMD63 barrel? Also what all was needed to modify the saiga handguard to fit?

I like the look. Is it just my imagination or is that barrel a little on the short side?

You screw building ?? It looks pretty sweet..
We are still gonna have to get together sometime and build a couple AKs..
I'm getting one of 555th's flat bending jigs, and we can share that, if you want..

No, I am using the rivets build, and I am getting one from 555th too, I think share is good idea .

anyone know if L1A1 Flash hider will work on AMD 65 barrel ??? I need more the 16 inch

I believe that question was already addressed in another thread. From what I understand the FAL flash hider won't work, it's just a little to short. And besides it's a "FLASH HIDER", not a muzzle brake.

As far as a L1A1 flash hider goes they are 5.5 inches overall length but only add 3.330 to the end of the barrel and are 9/16x24 rh thread. If you installed some sort of sleeve in the very end or how ever far inside it to get it to the length you need that might work. Also FAC lists the FSE fake L1Al hider so you could use that or wait till the ban hopefully ends.

Saiga Stocks sets are available from Krebs Custom Guns.

that mean I can't use real L1A1 Flash hider for now untill the AWB die.
