Nice work. Great to see the progress!

That finned shorty is barrel is insane!
I rate your originality a 9.3 on the sick-monkey scale.

Thanks guys. It's going to be fun building it, especially making all the custom parts.
lookin good sofar!
cant wait to see it all finished
Keep the change-I just want my Country back!!!
I got the whatchamacallit part TIG'd to the top of the trunnion at school today. Next I'll clean up the weld and blast the part. I still have to mill the gas tube retainer slot into the trunnion before I can call the piece done.
I swiped this front trunnion from the M70 UF kit. I just couldn't bring myself to use a standard Romy style trunnion on this build.
nice did you order yourself an ak builder fixed stock flat for it? oh another thing could you bring your specialized rivet crusher for my scope rail? thanks
I'll be sure to bring the scope rail rivet crusher with me to the BP.
Back on topic...
I smoothed over the welds and then blasted the whole thing. I kept the blast media away from the locking lugs, feed ramp and barrel bore as much as possible since the AlOx is so aggressive.
wow i love how it turned out, what will you do for a rear sight? g3?
