The question about the OAL came up earlier, and here is how it works out:

Rifles with folding or collapsible stocks are measured with the stocks in the collapsed position.

Barrel attachments need be permanently affixed if they are designed to make the barrel over 16" long, and are not required to be permanently attached if they do not (ie: a muzzle brake on a 14.5" barrel must be permanently attached; a flash hider on a 16" barrel need not be permanently attached).

In this case, the OAL is measured either with the stock collapsed (or fixed in place) PLUS the length that the bayonet extends out past the muzzle, OR, without the bayonet, but with the stock extended and screwed in place.

The only concern here is that the stock be extended and screwed in place BEFORE the bayonet is removed.

Correct the folding stock button has a set screw in it, when it is in the fixed position! Before i make it in to a folder i FIX a bayonet using a set screw, so once the bayo is on you cant push the button to take it off, then i take the stock set screw off and it is then able to fold!!! the barrel on this weapon is a 16inch barrel so the barrel lenght isnt a issue.... The mag is held in place buy a set screw that requires a allen wrench to remove.

I like!

Just checked: the ORF kits are $500 (http://rapidfire.targetweb.net/cgi-bin/store/agora.cgi/agora.cgi?p_id=02066).

Noob question: I'm interested in a 5.45 AK - to take advantage of the ammo prices - but the kit prices seem to be up there. Is there such a thing as a $200 5.45 kit? What's the expected barrel life for a 5.45 that isn't abused?

Yes, I'm starting to run the numbers. :)

You're not going to find a 5.45 kit for under $300.

It is a good investment even at current prices.

The part kit for this weapon was 650$ back when ohio rapid fire had them. Ohio rapid fire has this parts kit still in stock but you pay more for the ones that have no "wear or tear" this on was one of thier perfect conditions ones. BEWARE i have read on other forms that some of their cheeper parts kits have RUST :eek:

to answer you question on barrel life you have to addin how many time you shoot it and what your shooting out of it! i would say that the weapon has a life of 50years!

Good to know. I think I may take the easy way out and just stick to building up my RomyGs.

Thanks to all who responded.

their cheaper kits actually have beat-up old crappy bolts and carriers from god only knows what other guns. very dissapointing and the company declined to comment after 4 attempts. buy their higher end one if anything. but i will say the barrel and other parts were in very good condition, just that the bolt was clearly from another gun, so have to headspace now, and had a ring on the face where corrosive ammo/primer had eaten it away.
