This was built on a Firing line reciever ,, they are not cheap ,, the reciever cost me
out the door $565.00 !! U used a screw in barrel so i had to index it so when the barrel is tight the sites line up .. meaning having to machine down the flange on the barrel.. that was a slow process removing .001 at a time and checking the fit..
These MUST be head spaced .. by machining the bolt locking lugs .. another slow
process and the lugs must be straight and the exact amount of metal taken off of
both lug surfaces..
These milled kits are not for a novice with no building experiance.. yea you can
have the threads removed and pin the barrels like a stamped gun with trunions
but that not how these were designed to be put together..
Im going to get another Milled Russian with the fixed stock and another reciever so
i can have a matched set.!!
Yea i know it looks worn and abused . that what i decided on.. remember this Russian was made in the early 50's and have seen some hard use some time some where..
I think the worn look gives it a charactor thats unique.. I already have several new looking AKs so i didnt need another "New looking " one..
The wood is trashy but looks better than the pics show.. I have a set od Tantals 50's
era wood but not going to use them on this gun ..
Yes i did fire it to function test it .. it didnt blow up .. in fact it functioned as any
AK flawlessly!! I didnt shoot any groups .. just shot it
I love the AKS. Wish I could afford a milled receiver build. The battle worn look is nice. That is a reminder of why these were built to begin with. A functional look. Not to many pretty guns on a battlefield. Good luck with your next build. :ak47:
