O.K., guys... I have 4 projects awaiting my efforts (and yours, too)...


1.) Bulgarian AK-47 kit with a thumb-hole wood stock, on a Global rec.
I need to do some whittling to mate the milled butthole stock to a standard stamped trunnion, as well as the rest of the build. The kit was from Lois at Centerfire. The buttstock will probably be a little tricky, but the wood is very nice, reddish brown solid stain, not a scratch on it. I could just put something else on it, but why would I want the easy way out?


2.) Polish underfolder kit on a Global rec.
Complete build, trying to keep original looking


3.) AMD-65 from TAPCO
Complete build, original


4.) I have an AK-74 5.45X39 receiver from Global that needs a kit, either a plum kit from K-Var, or the little dragunov style '74 Bulgy from Centerfire, will be complimented by a drag. style sniper scope either way.

Which one would you like to see me tackle first?
Which one would you tackle first?
Which ones of these would you avoid?
When have I used up all of my lifelines?:dunno:

Any thought, Ideas, or input from you guys would be greatly appreciated. :thankyou:

The underfolders are my favorite. I would build that one if I already had the kit in hand. Good luck on which ever one you choose.

Personally, I'd do the AMD-65 first, because it was the cheapest and if I F'ed it up it wouldn't be a tradgedy. Next I'd tackle the Bulgie 7.62 for near the same reasons. Then I'd build my Primo 74's which I like more anyway. That Dragonov stocked 74 will look pretty cool. :thumbup1:

I would start with #1. Why? You ask. It was you the build you listed first. So subconsciously you really want to do that one first. Go with the flow. :)

You know that Scott at DPH arms has some very nice looking AK-74 kits right now, right?

oh, yeah...
plum.
I saw a plum side-folder somewhere, and I was thinking it was him, but I'm not sure. Plenty of dough, though. I was thinking about maybe that little dragunov style one at centerfire... whattya think?

ya know... I have a maple in front of the house that has to come down, and some of it looks pretty nice. maybe if i can find a nice flamy or quilted peice, with alot of swirl in the grain, this might be the ticket. maybe even inlay it with some mahogany. wouldn't that be nice?
I'm gettin my stone and oil...

Really, cephus???
geeez... I never knew that. I used to work in a hardwood sawmill (for about 6 years) and never got to see that part of the tree. It always ended up in the hog, then into the boiler. This old maple has some pretty fair roots. I'l have to use care digging them up. Thanks for the tip.
You know the old saying "you learn something new every day"?
