Ive build my 1st AK pistol and have a few more on the way... (Thanks to everyone that got me addicted!!!)
Anyways I just lined the rails up the best I could with the holes on the receiver matching the holes in the rails on a tapco flat... This did not work very well and I would get bolt tilt causing a jam every 1in20.
After looking closer to what was going on. I noticed that when I would get the holes to match, the rails would be WAY to low! by ~.125" or more! If I tilted the rails up, the bolt would hit the trunnion, if too low, the bolt would tilt, and hit the magazine!
I fixed this by bending the rails a little and everything works great. but I bought an extra Flat, and will replace the flat with a new correct one!
I want to do it the correct way on the next build. I was reading Soup to nuts. "They said the trunnions will very" Is this from MFG to MFG? or each trunnion will be differ from the next?
Anyone know what size bit to use for an Egyptian kit?
