Question One:

I am going to start demilling an Ak74 in a few days, but dont know, how to go about taking that small rivet with a spring and clip that holds the butt stock against the receiver when the stock is folded. looks like it goes into the front trunion.

second question:

Can i use all the internal parts from an AK47 on the AK74? meaning trigger(double hook G2) hammer, disconnect, retaining clips.

That piece is NOT a rivet. It's a pin with a slot cut in, when installed, the spring will fit into the slot and hold it in place, sort of like the FCG. Just drill out the 4 rivets holding the sheetmetal from the trunions than remove it, the latch, spring and pin will than come out.

DO NOT DRILL IT, IT IS NOT A RIVET.

+1, The retainer is not a rivet. You really just need to pry the end of the spring away from the pin and it should remove.

I guess I shouldn't have posted at 0100. Sorry about that first advise.

No worries. fal,

Is there any site like this one

http://howtobuildanaktyperifle.com/


that will give you, step by step directions on building an AK74. like how to removing and install the complete folding stock spring, pin open the stock and maybe even shoot it while doing cart wheels...

Hey no problem rg,

I used, that website on the first 4 AK47. I think I can break them down and put them together with one eye and one hand. well maybe two hands, i will need one to pat myself on the back once i finish the rifle. LOL..
