    Default Bulgarian AK74 "assembly"

    This time I'm gonna assemble instead of build. Decided to go w/ nodak spud 100% receiver. Lazy I suppose. Other goodies include a surplus original plum furniture set and an Atlantic Arms chrome lined bbl, 5.45. I thought about doing it in 223 but since I got in on the 5.45 reloading and sizing die GB why not? I'll post up pics as soon as the goodies start arriving.

    nothing wrong with assembling with a ffl reciever as long as you realize its not building and you did and I never expect it differently

    I have a similar situation, got a new eg 74 kit, choice eg 223 barrel or eg 5.45 barrel no rush

    you will have more fun reloading 5.45mm
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    There ya go.., a good tool to have on site.
    A couple of things that made my press a bit easier to use.
    I built a stand to raise up the press about 20 inches. Less bending and more eye level work.
    Added a valve knob to operate the little hydraulic control
    Harbor Freight has the small magnetic LED battery light blocks. They help put a little light on the pressing ram area.

    The light and wood stand can be seen here>


    The valve knob., also two aluminum shims to take some of the movement out of the ram body.>

    That knob on the jack and the led light look like a great idea! I had to shim mine as well. I raised mine up too and put some wheels on it. They are way too low to the ground.

    Nice upgrades, blue. I'll have to do those myself. I can find all the stuff except for the "peaches" box. LOL!
