    In 21st Century America, there's something that's just plain wrong about buying gunsmithing parts at a chain store...

    That's also a smokin' price on those flats!

    Looks like the actual seller is "Grandslam" and sears is running their site like amazon.com does by taking orders and drop shipping the item.

    I didn't pick up on that, but the site had that sort of look. More power to 'em; it seems to be working for Amazon.

    They may be cheap, but they're still Tapco flats

    AK-Builder, bay-beh!
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    If you compare, you see the obvious difference. Curtis (of AK-Builder) really puts a lot of care and time in the dimensioning and stamping before releasing the final flat for sale.

    When bent and fit, a tapco flat will work, there is no doubt. An AK-Builder flat will work with less effort and look more authentic when done.

    Until you compare, you won't know why.

    I don't understand the antagonism. Personally, I drive Ford for trucks and GM for sedans. I used to like'em both. Now, Ford wins because they didn't whine for a gubmint handout.

    I built my first AK on a Tapco flat. I bought an AK-Builder flat for an underfolder build later, and the difference was obvious - stepped rails, milled clearance for the trunnions, etc. Cheap as I am, I'll go for the AK-builder flat now.

    The AK-Builder flats are better, but the Tapcos work just fine.

    That first built was a screw build on a Tapco. Eventually I plan to redo it with rivets, on an AK-Builder flat... but it's way, way down on the "do" list.
