TGI AMD65
Stock upgrade makes this very shootable
Doc -- The piece on the AMD stock -- Welded? Steel tube flattened on ends? I know there are folks not bothered in the least shooting these, I'm just not one of them. Your solution is elegant.

It's available at apex. It is welded and the whole stock is swapped. Pretty easy. There is also a bolt-on one. It is, I believe, some sold mild steel, flattened on the ends and welded directly to a factory amd65 stock. There is a section of rubber sleeve on it for comfort:

That is a factory competition thumb release that attaches to the factory long-tab magazine release. It is a bolt on piece with a little ball and socket joint between the armature and the piece attached to the magazine release. It takes some getting used to but it is a slick little add-on.

Good Man with the enamel Doc. Oh hell yeah that is all we used. Hell NASCAR uses it on their race engines. Short of a good hot commercial bluing, we tested em all and that stood up better than anything we tried.
A 100% must be stripped weapon not even a finger print on them, like stripped dipped and clean. Apply engine enamel bake done. Hell I got AKs in the room I have to redoe we did with the fancy $$ stuff, enamel is holding up to everything just fine.
Some fun wars in the early days on enamel. :rofl:

I used to use the high temp engine enamel exclusively in Semi gloss black. I found this Rustoleum enamel in satin black which seemed to match up even closer to original. I switch back and forth.

Thanks Doc!!! That is an interesting piece. I might have to try and make me one of them, and try it out.

My IZ132 conversion...
I was going for the AK103 clone but didn't have the side fold stock and wasn't going to go as far as to "dimple" the FSB & GB, so basically it's a SGL21-71. All the leftover receiver holes and the BHO slot next to the trigger were TIG'd and then the whole rifle was Cerakoted in flat black. Just waiting to get back home to install my 0-1000m site leaf. The 74 style brake is chambered for 7.62. I've had so many ask me if I drilled that out, SMH...sigh*
All said and done, it was ~$300 total since I already have a supply of necessary parts & tooling.

This is a very nice looking ak. I am a toolmaker by trade would love to build an ak. I am very jealous of your skill. Do you fold your own recievers?
