The best bet is the check the marketplace here on Calguns. There are only some ak-74 kits for sale on most websites at the moment. Everything else is sold out for now.

Hey guys -- first post on Calguns. Would love to attend the next AK build party, especially if it's late Feb or early March. I'm in San Francisco so would naturally prefer one in the Bay Area but I'd be happy to drive up to Redding or Sac if that's where the critical mass for the build party is.

I just ordered a Izhmash AK74 parts kit, US Krinkov barrel, and Ohio Ordinance AK74 receiver. The receiver needs bluing and trunion+stock holes but has both rails pre-installed. I'll try to get the bluing done before the build party.

I was pretty adamant about getting an Izhmash kit -- I dated a girl for 1.5 years who actually grew up in Izhevsk Russia, the medium-sized factory town where they've been making AKs since they were created. She hates that I'm buying a gun from her hometown but, hey, we're not dating anymore!

Unfortunately it may be up to a month before I have the AK74 parts kit due to the shipping backlog everyone has right now.

I need help with anything that's going to require non-trivial shop work which is quite a lot on an AK. A few weeks ago I knew nothing about the mechanics of guns. I've done an inordinate amount of research recently glued to YouTube videos and wonderfully designed gunsmith webpages but when it comes to shop skills I'm a newbie with a lot to learn. I find it all extremely fascinating so I'll be the one trying to soak up as might wisdom from you folks as possible.

Seems like there're many others hankering to do one of these. Should we put a date down and see what interest we can stir up for it?

I'm definitely interested in a build party near Sacramento as well, granted I can get a parts kit. My technical and machining skills are unfortunately little to none but have spent time reading about the process and familiarizing myself with the art of AK building.

Yes, they are.

As for which, depends on what you're going to build.

Well, in order to facilitate a build party:

May those who are interested list:

1. Whether they plan to (a) have all parts present and work on assembling, (b) on specific parts, and fit (non-receiver), (c) or working on the receiver, such as bending or heat treating.

2. When they expect to be available for the build.

3. What tools they possess.

Hello All, I am definitely interested!

I have a Romy G kit that I am dying to put together. I have the Polish bent 80% receiver that 44mag was selling for a while. I am a total newb to ak builds and don't have the tools (nor the skills) to do the job (press, riveter). Please count me in!

1. Ak builder flat plate, rivets, rails

2. I would like to bend, treat and fully prep the receiver. Also press in the barrel and head space if time allows.

3. Let me know what tools you need. I have a few items and would be happy to buy some tools to help in the cause.

Redding is fine for me.

I have to be in Redding on Feb. 23rd already, so that day would be ideal for me!! BTW-Has anyone heard of the Polish pre-bent 80's having problems during a build due to lack of heat treating?

I'm really interested in a build party and have no experience. Redding would be great. I am waiting on a Bulgarian milled underfolder kit I just bought, needs receiver and barrel. Could anybody tell me what additional parts I would need to build on a stamped receiver. I have read that I need front and rear trunnions and the correct barrel (I don' know which parts are compatible) . Also what flat do I need for this build? I will hopefully gather all of the parts before a party is planned. I can bring a benchtop drill press, grinder and a couple of dremels.

I'm sorry for asking such a newbie question but what would one need to bring to a BP? I would still need to by the parts kit correct? and we would only be building the lower from a flat I'm assuming?

Are virgin barrels acceptable for a BP. I know it takes the proper equipment to cut the pin grooves. Also should the kit be demilled?

I've built a few. Virgin barrels are no big deal, you usually use a drill for the pin grooves. The only one that you can't use a drill for would be the handguard retainer groove, and those are usually cut even on a virgin barrel. If it needs cut, I've done it with a file. There are two (or more) types of virgin barrels. Some have NO work done to them at all. Some have the extractor cut/handguard retainer cut done. Some have extractor/handguard/gas port done. Just depends. Even if you get your receiver done at the BP and save population for after the party that would be cool.
