    Default Yugo milled undefolder project finished, some pics.

    Hello all. After taking some time off from building I decided to get back into it and finish up some projects before getting into some more builds. I thought I'd share one that I'm pretty happy with.

    First on my list was my Yugo milled under folder. It's been built for a few months now and I have been shooting it for a while, just had to add some finishing touches. For those that are interested a quick parts breakdown.

    -A very nice condition Yugo parts kit (I'll have to update this with info on where I got it as it escapes me now)
    -A US barrel. I have used some surplus pulled barrels in the past but as the kit was near new I wanted to try a new tube on it and compare.
    -One of Tort-Torts milled Yugo under folder receivers. His products are top notch. I have build a few other kits on his milled blanks and have been very happy with how they turned out.
    -A set of Weaponmark's Yugo etching stencils. This was the finishing touch I needed to complete this build. Another outstanding vendor with a great product and hopefully my quick pics show how nice these selector marks come out.
    -AK builder rivet set
    -Misc. parts, trigger hammer etc.

    On to the pics,

    I've posted this pic in the AK BIY forum here, specifically in the Tort-Tort 80% receiver thread. This was after I completed it but before I added the electro stencils. Nice but something just seemed missing.



    Here it is all done and with the stencils highlighted and the selector notches cut.



    A close up of the selector markings along with the original markings on the rear sight block,



    I didn't plan on filling in the markings at first but I noticed the grenade sight range markings were filled in so while touching those up I did the others. All said it was a fun build, she shoots great and it feels good to get back into building and completing some projects.


    *JeepFan is not affiliated in any way with any of the above mentioned vendors but is definitely a happy customer.

    An excellent looking rifle. Good job

    I've got a 64 UF that I put together using a heavy stamped blank welded between the stubs. It looks pretty good but nowhere as nice as a new receiver. They were hard to come by and expensive back then....And again good job.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Building your own is definitely an addiction.
