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.

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.
+1 Geat build, neat looking rifle!
