I want everyone to think about one thing. You can go to your local FFL and buy an AK Receiver for around $59.99(thats what I spent) rails, center post, hardened, coated is already finished. Why would you want to spend $190.00 + on a jig just to bend maybe 2 or 3 flats. The bend on the flats are easy compared to having each one completely finished. All Im saying is......in the long haul building one from a flat is not that easy as compared to buying one through your FFL------Unless ya'll are criminals or something. Just something to think about.
I think what you fail to recognize is that for most of here the fabrication is what it's all about.
Everybody needs a hobby, to us it's the actual building of a rifle, as opposed to the mere Assembly of a bunch of store bought parts.
If all you are interested in is quick and cheap, just go buy yourself a SAR and avoid the build all together.
We do not condone any illegal activities here, but am I happy that I don't have to go through a FFL in order to build one from scratch?
Of course I am, that's another $20 or $30 in my pocket.
I don't know how much R&D or fab work you've done, but if you can turn out a jig that works for less money, I would love to see it, hell, I'd even buy one.
There are many, many hours and more than a few failures involved in designing something like this.
Look what happened to W. Morgan when he tried to offer these.
