View Full Version : AK Pistol: railed barrel assembly

01-03-2008, 10:16 PM
So I'm working on a new AK pistol design and thought I'd share it with you guys. The gun won't be complete for a while because I'm heading back to school soon, but I got the barrel assembly pretty much done, with the exception of the gas tube. I was pretty tired to miling a front sight tower into the gas block so for this build I decided to attach a long picatinny rail to it and attach optics and/or AR-15 BUIS to it.The "rear sight block" is made out of 7075 aluminum to reduce weight, and I was pretty happy when I found a bar of the material that I had bought a long time ago but never used. The screws shown are temporary; I still need to buy some properly sized ones.

Oh and I didn't mill that rail by myself, I don't have the skill for that...I bought a Millet blank from Midway for about $50. Not cheap at all. Anyone out there will CNC machinery that wants to make me some picatinny railing for a good price? :)


Now then, can anyone recommend some good, reasonably priced BUIS or maybe a laser?

Jumbo I,m not a fan of the laser as its just to tacticool. BUT if you dont put one on that pistol setup it will be a FAILURE!
