Update - U.S. built AK-74 floorplates

Can't tell you how happy I am. The prototype is working, need to find sheet metal that isn't galvanized & then I'm going to start pumping these out.

Question about sheet metal cutting/stamping:

What's the easiest way? To make this practical for mass production, I need to find a quick/easy way to cut out sheet metal blanks cookie-cutter style.

Short of buying a press and die-stamping them, I'm wondering what are my options? Cut-off wheels work but are not easy. What about sheet metal shears or nibblers?

Enjoy while you can... in case the page doesn't show, my Internet connection is having problems and line maintenance is scheduled for this week... again.

Don't they have to be pair with a US made follower to be considered one US part together, like handguards? Is there a place to get US made 5.45 followers?
Glad you're right. :thumbup1: I verified it in another place just to be sure. I'm not sure where I got that idea. Damn, I'm going to need like 35 of those. When are you going to start selling Pookie?
I'm ok with the round hole and US stamp. As long as they function. I'm still in.
Pricing sounds ok to me I'll need 35, thats $52.50 plus shipping correct? Would it better shipping on this many?

Or would it just be $2 per plate?

I would be willing to pay $3 each for 10 plates
I would like them to have a square hole, and no markings
I don't mean to be particular but this is for a special one of a kind 5.45.

My krink doesn't need US parts due to it being a SBR :)

also consider these things

(1) sole source - no one else is making them
(2) Your time

With those 2 factors, I would say
$2.50 per plate 10 plate min shipped would be a fair price
Shipping will be $3.85 so that would make is $21.00
I'd say +1 but your math is off.

How is my math wrong?

10 plates for $25.00 shipped.
The cost of shipping is $3.85 since it will be under 1 pound and that is PRIORITY MAIL
So that leaves $21.15 (I rounded to $21)

Doesn't matter. Whatever price he sets, they will sell.
Like me and Polish Laminated Pistol Grips.
I am the ONLY source for them in the US.

Anyway..... Pookie, my offer still stands.. I got $30 with your name on it

Ah I thought you meant $25 plus shipping. LOL I guess I can't read today.
I agree they will sell, like hotcakes :thumbup1: .
