Ok, I've done alot of reading on building AK's from various sites. I feel like this is something that I could probably accomplish on my own. However, I am a recently married and still in school and as always money is tight. I just don't want to buy a kit and receiver and screw it up. Has anyone ever thought about having a large get together in a location that different Newbies like myself could travel to and help out and watch parts of the builiding process of an AK. This could also possibly include certain people bringing certain parts or equipment to facilitate the build. Let me tell you, I would jump on an idea like this. Even if it was in a neighboring state, I would still go. What this does, is it cuts alot of the guess work, frustration, and uneasiness associated with something that all Newbies experience when doing something new for the first time. If we were able to agree on a general location, we would also need someone who has built an AK to be there to help facilitate the build. I am very interested in doing something like this!!! :cheers: I live in Georgia and would be willing to travel to any of my neighboring states to do something like this. Please give me some feedback on what you think.
