I am in southern Ohio and new to building. I would love to get together with some local folks and give building a shot. If someone is interested and has the correct tools and experience, I would be willing to give you flats/ a kit or a needed tool if you can give me a hand.

Hey Bud,

As you know I live local to you, but I've had to step back from a lot of my stuff since baby #2. I do have one AMD about 1/2 built so far.

Maybe someone else around here is building?

What kind of recievers are you getting? Flats or completed? Im in the process of trying to get a folder kit from Ohio Rapid Fire for my first build. Theyre supposed to be rough so I wont be mad if I screw something up.

I live close to Louisville. I just got my first receiver the other day and I'm trying to decide on a kit. I would be interested in getting together to learn how to build.

The receiver I have is a ITM. I have a Bulgarian AK 74 that was built on an ITM and it seems to be good. Are the ITM good to use for a home build?

I would like to bend some flats too. If we could set up a day then I would go ahead and buy a few flats. The only experience I have with building AK is converting Saiga rifles. Kail if you rent a jig would you want so money towards it or just a flat?
