I made the rail and then milled the rear sight block out, then tig welded the rail on.
The gas tube is a shortened bulgy 74 tube. I shortened it and expanded the front to fit the gas block.
I haven't fired it yet so I don't know how reliable the screw builds are but I don't see these coming loose with red loc tite. Maybe breaking but not coming loose.
I will get to fire it next weekend after the paint cures and I actually get some time off work. :ak47:
The wood isn't what will finally go on it but I am refinishing the laminated stuff that will end up on it.
