I doubt that most of them have ever actually BUILT anything. Screwing a barrel into a finished receiver and popping in a locking shoulder is NOT building, it's assembling. FALs are incredibly easy to assemble, nothing like bending a flat (or finishing bent blank) and actually building an AK.
Thank you for the word 7.62x39mm
someone named radio is a great assembler but dislikes true builders like myself. in automobile lingo he likes the guys on the assembly line but not the R&D guys who make the prototypes. oh well his loss
I am currenlty still fooling around I had to set the barrel back and I am in the process of reaming the chamber
I have finished two 80% FAL receiver castings with a mill and lathe. It is not an easy task even with the proper machine tools. To finish one by hand into a functioning rifle is a monumental feat. More power to you for even trying and to actually doing it.
thank you again
thank you also after all the grief I got at FALFiles I stopped posting there, 7,62 was right some really great peple there defended me and were shot down gunplumber was one he is a pioneer and great gunsmith he understood the talent I have or gift,
for the record I only used the JB to help set the mag feed area until I got it fine tuned there is no more JB weld on this receiver it was a temporary fix. I should also note I did not have a 100% FFL receiver to copy from only a few stubs from barrel take offs
thank you all for your support
as far a CeeKay who is he, he has yet to show me or anyone else a real build here or on any other site, probably because there never will be one.
there is a difference between growing the hay and shoving the shit
Even after I posted pics for him here and there he was hammered....
