I will bring all of my jigs and tools needed to build a completely functioning AK. I have the barell removal tools, tg jig, starting on the rear long rivet jig as soon as i find the right steel. All of my tools can be brought with me except for the press. However all of my jigs can be used without a press so that is not a big deal. I can bring my small hf drill press which is perfect for builds. So yeah I will have everything needed to build an AK in the next week or two. I still need to make a flat bending jig that could be used with a press or a bfh. So who is in? I can not host this at my house sorry guys but I am willing to travel. Currently I am on the waiting list for a flat bending jig from the akfiles but it will be more than 6 months until i receive it so i am just going to build one. I would like to shoot for sometime in May or June.

I am in, I would be fine with hosting it, if it was in May/June we could do it in my home garage and set up tables and such to have lots of room. I have an automotive press not sure if that would work or not. Don't have enough power out there for the welder. And becuase of my idot naibors at my business shop I can't risk doing it there. What all would we need ideally?

I don't have any build plans yet (kit hording) but depending on when yall get together, if I'm not out of town working, I wouldn't mind sitting in and helping you guys.....if you'd let me, I'd even bring the rolling rock and some homemade BBQ.....

Everything sounds good. I figure this will take a while to plan and throw together to make sure everyone that wants to come has enough time to make plans. Ordering kits, compliance parts etc. and getting a day away from the kids and work.

midwest armory is the cheapest i have found so far for compliance parts. The only thing is that he ships extremely slow. It took two weeks for me to get my parts. He did throw a part in for free to.

When i say compliance parts, i mean things like a new set of handguards, having a second pistol grip is NG in NYS. So i figured i would go with a polymer type setup and while i was at it replace the rear pistol grip and butt stock also. I figured those, together with the G2 FCG i should be set in all aspects, i just havent ordered the new furniture yet.

P.S. Does one of us have a set of headspace gauges, or should i pick a set up?

Hi, just registered here.
I'd like in any time. I have all my parts plus two receivers I made up last year. Also have some small tools and a mapp gas kit.
Built one Romy from scratch so far and it turned out great.
Please keep me in the loop on this.

Wow, keep me posted.

I have been contemplating if I should buy a kit and receiver or a built rifle...this could be a good answer!!

There is a post on arf.com about a guy from bethlehem and some of those guys were interested as well. So far i do not have any headspace gauges. I would like a set of manson gauges but the wait is too long. Brownells sells manson reamers gauges as well for $30 a pop. I wanted to get the go and the no go gauge instead of just the field gauge.

I'd love to get in on the build, however, I'm way down south. Actually, after reading the original post, I started googling ak's and ar's. The jigs for the ar plates are real expensive. The ar jigs are cheaper, but the 80% blocks are more expensive over the plates. Now I can't decide what to build, and I don't know anyone in my area that has built either before. Good luck with ya'lls build.

I have all of my jigs built. I started crushing a few rivets by hand but it did not turn out that great because I had a receiver whish already had the center support in it. So the rivets are coming back out and I am using my press. Besides that I have ten sets of rivets 1 completed nds receiver and 5 flats to bend.

From what i understand a firearm or functioning receiver can be built only for personal use. Because it does not have a serial number and whatnot it is not legal to be sold or transferred to another party. Its yours forever or risk prosecution.

Unless you buy a 100% receiver then you can sell and trade all you want because they are stamped by the manufacturer.

When you sell it, you serialize it and add the builder info......just like builder do.
