I just got my kit from CFS Friday (I live near Lexington, so I picked it up). Nice parts. I was suprised at how beefy the construction is. I think the Soviets used a factor of safety of about 10 in this design.

I'm looking at different ways I could build up this kit. I found AK-USA has a muzzle break that will make the rifle non-NFA. Global Trades has receivers, and will install my trunnions for a fee. The problem I'm having right now is trying to get the barrel out of the trunnion so I can ship it to them. Any hints? Also, when I get the receiver back, how can I install the barrel?

Also, I noticed that the AK-USA (http://www.ak-103.com) rifles have a really nice finish to them. Looks like it has som e sort of texture to it. Although I like Parkerizing, I wouldn't mind having a nicer looking finish. Does anyone know how AK-USA applies their finish? Not sure how durable it is. Maybe they use the spray on baking stuff from Brownells over Parkerizing?

BTW, check out the media player clips on the ak-usa website (in the gallery section)- they're way cool!

St.-- the barrel is pressed into the trunnion and held in place with a pin. Knock the pin out then the barrel can be removed.

Reassembly is the reverse however the headspace should be checked.

The easiest to finish to apply are the Brownell Aluma Hyde and they do not require baking.

Good luck with it.:smile:

St.--,
I live in Ashland KY. I have a 20 ton press and am getting a xebec press kit this month. If you're over this way stop by and I'll let you use them. Some times the AMD barrel pins are a real biatch to get out. You really need to press the pins and barrel out and back in to do a neat job. If you're interested email me @ [email protected]
