For about a year now I have been on the fence with my AK build, always in the end deciding against it. Well I have finally done it; I have purchased a Rom G AK parts kit, it hasnt come yet but its supposed to be in "Good to Very Good" condition with matching numbers. I also bought a bolt kit to go with it but in the end decided to have Global Trades do the riveting for me. They have a great option where they supply a reciever and you supply the trunions, mag catch and trigger guard with old rivets removed. For a good price they will rivet it all for you professionally. The wood refinishing and blueing I will do myself. I will be updating this post with pictures of my build as it comes along and finally with a range report after Global Trades rivets my reciever for me. Thanks :) and remember to check back in a couple weeks to see the it all come together :)

I have a Polish underfolder kit, and a 80% reciever just waiting to go together. One day I'll get around to it. I plan to go the bolt route, the wood is flawless out of the box, and I got one of those home parkarizing kits from Brownells to refinish it. Good luck with your build.

Right now I havnt decided, meaning I havent actually bought anything yet. I am thinking of using a G2 trigger group, a forearm/handguard, pistol grip, muzzle attachment and ofcourse the reciever. I dont really care for the weird paratrooper foward grip and so a nice handguard is my highest priorty right now.

I've got a Cold Steel (http://www.coldsteelsolutionsincorporated.com/) pre-bent in the mail, but the Romy+G2 kit I was gonna get from Copes is backordered. :(

Some of the other places that are out are saying mid-Jan. I'll have to call Copes and see if its the same with them.


After that it's Yugo M92 SBR time!!! :D :D :D

I heard we have some new rules on Part Kits coming in, basically the trunions and barrel also have to be cut, turning "Part Kits" into "Stock + FCG" kits. Im not completely up to date and that may just be a rumor. If I had the money Id get me a few other kits as well, but the Rom G is about all I can afford. I am going with Global Trades reviever because they are only about 20min from me, and I hear they do good work.
