OK, I'm getting ready to start the buying parts phase on a x25 gas operated carbine. So far, here is my plan:
Apex AK74 kit for main components. (what I don't need, I can stockpile or sell) $265.00
Royal Tiger PPS43 kit for the magwell and 4 mags. $69.00
RTG for HK sight conversion kit. $45.00
Green Mountain for a .311 barrel blank that I will have another lister finish for me. $33.00
I have read tons of information on the 7.62x25 caliber conversion, but there is a fair amount of conflicting information. I plan to try and follow 2XTM's write up over at Weapons Guild on building a gas op set-up. His is absolutely georgeous, and runs perfect. Only problem is that his is designed around a nice machined aluminum magwell, and PPSH41 mags. If I had access to one of those magwells, it sure would make life easier. Oh well.
Any rate, that is my current thoughts on a parts list. Before I start burning up the plastic, I wanted to run it by the experts, so I don't buy something wrong. Thanks in advance.
