I've searched all over and can't find templates for an AK-74 receiver. :dunno: I know there are differences from the 47, so I thought I could find a template that had the differences. I must be looking in the wrong places, or are the differences minor enough that they are just adjusted during the build process?

Any help appreciated.

When I started my AK-74 build, I went through the same thing. It seems that there isn't any template specifically for the AK-74. The only real differance that I could find was that the magazine well is smaller.

That issue was addressed in another thread about SAR-2 (same as AK-74)magwell dimensions. I posted the dimensions on that thread.

Also, the rear trunnion on my kit was longer than the standard AK so when I drilled the holes for the rear trunnion the most forward hole interfered with the aft end of the selector lever. Just something to watch out for.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, That magwell sketch was just what I was looking for. I'll go slowly with the rear trunnion too. :thankyou:
