Finally, right? A fellow calgunner is gonna tutor on me on how it's done. I'm getting a Romy "G" with blond maple stock. I already ordered some ammo, mags, the kit and other parts. I'm gonna start building it on the 17th, so one more week !

I've asked Nico million questions and he was awesome to answer them all for me, but I think I should bug you now.

So one of them is, where can I buy one of those cases for rifle for an affordable price? What cleaning kits should I consider? What cleaning solutions and lube should I get?

Take your time, ask lots of questions and when you do the actual build - double check everything before you proceed. I can't wait to do another build, although next time, I'm going to just bend the receiver and assemble without rivets - so I can powdercoat the receiver before final assembly.

Its a freakin' blast! -You're gonna love it!

Dammit! I asked Nico if he could tutor me with my first build but I just couldn't find all the parts for my my kit for the longest time. (BULGARIAN 545 Barrel).

Congrats on pulling the trigger (building) and I'm sure you're in good hands. He's got good reviews on Angie's List. ;)

I'm planning on getting a different kit instead. I'll just hold off on the '74 for now 'til I find a barrel that doesn't cost as much as the kit I have.

Nico is the man. :cool2:
I've shot his AKs before and they kick so much azz. He's been telling that he would help and I finally decided to get a rifle. It gets very hard when you watch AK/AR porn and you just dont have one... No pun intended.

So... No cleaning required ? Seriously ?
I clean my pistols after each trip.

I'm from concord son :cool: lol this city sucks a little less.
Yeah for sure, I've been wanting to hang out with you. Tracy isn't that far, about 40 minutes away.

Oh for sure... That would be cool except I can't really commit to a specific day or time. I've been finding little jobs here and there lately and don't have a steady schedule. But yeah a range meet would be cool.

I'll order another parts kit today just in case I bump into you guys. Nico told me he would be willing to help me build if I pass his background check. ;)

Sweet! You'll have fun! Just make sure you have all your legal parts and anything you think you'll want to replace. As for cleaning I clean it after every range trip regardless if this is a tuff gun (clp, rem oil, gun scrubber) hahahah but yeah biggest things are the 922r parts and ca mag lock if your in ca. Same with mags to perminatly block them at 10. You can rivet the block using the hole in the mag if it's a metal mag :) have fun and enjoy!

DAMNYOU Panda,

Just ordered another kit this time with original uncut barrel.

I have a feeling you'll build one before I do and you don't even like rifles that much.

your next rifle should be an AR-15, its fun building until the pins don't wanna go in for a hour and you wanna smash it. :43:

It will be done by 21st :cool2: lol
I am kinda converting. I didn't like rifles that much because of CA making it so un-fun but mag-locks and semi auto are fine by me now.

What the heck man should have thrown this in the gunsmithing forum.


Congrats now we need to go shooting together when you get her done.

You can shoot my Mosin Nagant carbine, we then can have stiff drink of vodka to kill the pain in shoulder.

Lol thanks Justin, I still have your number.
I have been thinking about getting a rifle since Oak's party.

Good luck with the build Panda, I am working on my first build too. I have to say that CLP works just fine in an AK.
