On November 5, 2011 the first 'True NorCal AK Build Party' was held in Redding. At 9AM the participants began arriving at the designated location, Arisaka was our host and he graciously made his house and garage available for the event. We had 3 builds for this event, 2 from flats, one from a prebent NDS.
Alex$ came up from Chico with the sandblast cabinet, parkerizing system, tools, special tools, and served as the build supervisor due to his previous build experience.
Arisaka, Rock6.3 and the participants all provided tools which were freely shared as needed.
Participants in the inagural 'True NorCal AK Build Party' were:
