This one is built on a homemade .063 receiver with a narrowed Bulgy 74 trunnion and a homemade milled slant rear trunnion.It was pieced together from parts.Bolt and carrier matched and that is all that came from one rifle.Folder is a milled Chinese I think.Wood is Polish.US Fcg,rec and piston I made,mag follower.I'm in a bit of a dilema as to what muzzle device to use that will go with the look.Maybe an early 74 type.

I like it. 5.45 and underfolder go well together. Too bad nobody in the comblock ever put that together.

I just like the look of the bevel butt rear of the milled UF's.Caused alot of work since the stock needed slight clearancing for the rivets that it wasn't designed for.Could have used an AKM stock but that didn't fit the theme.Selector needed slight clearancing since the stock is slighly forward of original position. Not to mention making the rear trunnion from a fixed stock trunnion.Just alot of fitting with all these custom things of any kind.Thanks for the kind words.

The beveled back looks great.
I believe yours is the only homebuilt receiver I've seen with that.
The polished carrier looks good!!

There's something special about taking pieces from here and there and bring them together into a nice rifle.
I think a part of it must be that, with 100 mil of these around, it's nice to have an unique.

Oh,polishing.I beadblasted the paint off then carefully worked on the tooling and casting marks in the visible areas with the fine black sanding discs on the dremel.If you dig the edge you will create scallops and more work for yourself.You can't really get them all out without removing a lot of metal but you can level them so as not to be noticeable.Then a bucket of water with a few drops of Dawn in it and sand by hand for hours.220,320,500/600,then 1200 if you have some then Dremel polishing wheel #520 and finish with Eagle One Nevr-dull.Sorry you asked now aren't you :).Would be less tiring with the right compounds and wheels and buffs on a polishing/grinder type machine but I don't have one.
