    Default Needing some parts location help

    I have compiled a list of parts needed to finish my AK build, I'm having a hard time fining some of them. Perhaps some of you know where I can locate them. Here goes,
    Lower handguard retainer
    Locking lever
    front and rear trunions (found)
    selector lever stop
    trigger guard for stamped receiver (found)
    receiver cover
    pistol grip screw and nut (also on ak-builder)
    hammer spring
    sear spring
    hammer trigger pin (found)
    safety lever
    barrel (found)
    barrel bushing lock
    gas block retaining pin (found)
    front sight block and post (I have a front sight just missing the post and block)
    I know I'll need a rivet set and center support but those are everywhere so if there is a better set somewhere please let me know,
    Thanks for the help and all the info on here, i can't tell you guys how much I've learned so far yet still feel like an idiot trying to figure out all the different types and parts needed....

    It may be cheaper and easier to buy a parts kit, otherwise check Apex.

    it looks like you have one or two parts. list them and say you need everything else.
    555th said it right. just buy a kit from APEX and then go from there.

    I have to agree, it sounds like you need almost everything, I'd buy a kit and after you finish the build sell off the left overs.

    Go over to APEX, they have an AK section with individual parts listed, add up everything you need. Then look at kit prices

    Agree with everyone above! Buy a kit and sell off what you do not need, after the build is complete. Here are some links.....

    I thought I had a decent amount of parts but you guys are right, after compiling the list of what I still need it'd be about the same price to buy a non barrel kit and have some spare parts.

    That's the way to go. Order the kit of choice, and then you will only be in need of compliance parts. And maybe a few miscellaneous items, like a dis-connector spring.
