That's one of the nicer 74s that I've seen on here. Very nice work!

That looks awesome. So when is number three coming along? :D :D

It's never boring to see something nice like that.
Give us some details on the build.

Thank you guys. Hey Mike, number 3 is.......maybe one of the tantals when they come in. Jose' K47, that is a Vulcan receiver that I bought back in June. Kevin M4, it was originally a screw build and I just got a wild hair. So I bought the rivet tools and jigs from cwtoyota (great to deal with), bought a Zebec pres kit, and got in on the rivet group buy from gunsnet. Teadie talked me into trying the molyresin and I'm glad I did. I just tore it apart and came again new. I also refinished the wood while I was at it, and Drugrunner told me how to refinish the bakelite pistol grip. Then ordered a russian bakelite mag from K-var and thats about it. I really like 74's, need some more. Would'nt the folding 74 from DPHarms be the cats meow?? I'm just leary of the mods needed for the folder. I guess the next one is the Romanian AKM from weaponeer. Thanks again. Kevin.

Fear is the mind killer, the cuts and mods to the receiver to make a 74 side-folder is not that hard only time consuming. Oh yeah...your '74 woody gives me a woody :scared:

Great job Kev! She really looks great. Steelcore is right, I'm doing a sidefolder right now and it looks far more intimidating than it really is.

I built my sidefolder a few months back and still don't know if it works yet..
why you may ask? well because I bought the polymer folding stock back in aug and haven't received it yet!!!

Do you still have the Folder that came with it? If you come to the build party Vegeta you should bring your spare parts we might could do some swapping:)
