I know Dinzag sells a two piece, but they are pricey

thanks man

With this title, I thought you were going to say he died.

Maybe PM will make sure he sees your message.

The one I was working on was a bit different, but's one way.

I was thinking of doing that to a Bulgarian '74 retainer for 5.45

you just cut the top off and put a bolt where the handguard release pin went?

Only TIG we've got in the shop is one of those tiny little Miller machines. We've used it on a few stainless jobs maybe twice?

Hey all of you San Jose area people with machine tools, I'll trade beer and maybe even ammo for shop time.

I'm interested in:

A decent milling machine.

A decent lathe.

A finger brake.

A TIG welder.

I don't want to sign up for tech shop at $100 a month, I don't do enough work often enough. I don't know how they would react to prepping an AK parts kit or machining a FAL upper for a para top cover and folding charging handle.

CCCOC or De Anza might be an option for you.
