I understand that there is a big AK building crowd here and I am interested in doing this. Anyone feel like teaching ? I am skilled and can build anything. I want to do this once with someone who knows what they are doing before I decide on buying all the jigs and riveting tools and what not.
I am in long beach.

Yup, listen to the AkTEAM, they are a great group of guys and I'm pretty sure they have collectively build more than the Russian arsenals...

You might as well plan your next three or four AK builds now, heading to my third BP tomorrow and still have plans for several more.

I'm OC, I got 3 kits I bought 5 years ago and started buy tools to get her done. I demilled one AK and never got her together. Looks like a good time to continue. I noticed the the new kits dont have the matching barrel, you need to buy a new one and fitt it. I bought a welder, 20 ton press, bending jig, and started to build my rivet crimper. Any one out there care to assist?? Now with 2 kids - I'll start to build her again.
