Default When/Where is a Build Party??

I have an AK-47 kit that is ready to build any time now, I just need to know when and where one of the build parties would take place. I've been itching to build this thing so I would appreciate the info.

Wow.
Harsh replies fellas.
Personally I wish to see every law abiding, registered voting Californian build an AK.
I understand being wary of newcomers after the Mother Jones thing but perhaps this is someone truly interested in building their own AK, and not some phoney bologna 'undercover' reporter for some liberal rag.

OP:
I suggest looking in the services offered sub forum for any build parties local to you.

I'd host one but we'd have to clean the garage out first!

So I'm confused: I've seen replies from this guy with useful answers to other noobs whose questions were just as legitimate as mine. Also, people gave them a nice, warm welcome to the forum. But most of you guys gave me useless bull****. Explanation?

Build party would be cool - I could use some of my spare parts to make a copy of that alleged Osama Bin Laden AKMS that they just put on display at the CIA museum.

People need to chill out and either be helpful or kick rocks. KR24MARAUDER is a co-worker of mine, guess I made a mistake by telling him he should check out calguns to try to find a place to help him finish his build. The level of snide remarks and tinfoil hat suspicion around here has gotten outrageous.

My thanks to Nicoroshi and the couple others who actually made an effort to be helpful.

You're often dealing with kids here. It's always been perfectly legal to build your own gun. It's always been very public knowledge. Earlier this year, a reporter from Mother Jones went to a build party and video'd the process.

Major butt-hurt here, and the Preparation H is still being bought by the bucket.

Kids here figured that the California legislature was completely unaware of the ability to roll your own weapon prior to the MJ article and video, but as usual they seriously underestimate both the legislature's craftiness and desire to ban anything in the state having to do with weapons. Not to mention the fact that the Governor won't veto anything.

Sorry you welcome wasn't great, but welcome to Calguns.Net anyway.

As the post below notes, the tinfoil is strong on this site. Many Californians tend to bend-over for new laws. Sad that few appreciate that it's not a right if it's not worth fighting for. The California Department of Justice has 'em exactly where they want 'em.

/Thread. And enjoy building your own weapon once you find a place to do so.

Okay, now it makes a lot more sense. I can see how my lack of information on my profile would raise some red flags for people. I didn't hear about the Mother Jones thing until very recently, but that would make sense as well. Was just curious. Anyways, I think I've at least been pointed in the right direction. Thanks all for the welcome, and the helpful info.

Welcome! You'll find a few "testy" people on CalGuns - try to ignore them. The number of people willing to help if you have questions and the pure volume of collective knowledge on the site makes it worthwhile. Enjoy the build!!

As was previously mentioned above, check the Services Offered forum here -

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/f...play.php?f=106

Also, member Jayruta advertises AK build services here -

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=451515

There are multiple options. You just need to do a little leg-work.
