Default Classic - Hungarian AMD parts kit $329

I couldn't resist... I bought another parts kit. Classic Firearms has Hungarian AMD sidefolder kits with barrel pre-populated for $329. That's a great price for a sidefolder with the barrel already populated, considering that barrels are about $100 and populating it is $80-100 more if you can't do it yourself.

I've always wanted a Hungarian. When am I gonna find the time to build?

Anyway, maybe this will be of interest to some others. It's a disease I tell ya!

I ordered one last week for $349. I emailed them this morning asking if I can get the sale price since mine hasn't shipped yet. I had a response back in about a hour with a $20 refund.

Glad to hear they gave a refund! Classic seems to be a good company who understands that sacrificing something like $20 now can mean hundreds in future orders.

Thanks for posting the link ts77. I hope to see some of these bad boys on the range soon!

My kit comes Monday!

Just curious: For the OP, how are you planning to keep yours CA-legal?

I'm thinking I'll disable the gas system (cut the head off the piston) and make it a bolt-action. I'd rather not pin the stock, and I wouldn't have to do a Kydex wrap on the PG either.

so you'd rather lose semi auto action so you can have a folding stock? it takes one washer to lock the stock and will take 2 min to reverse it with a screwdriver if you ever leave CA. compared to what it'll take to replace the gas piston, I'm not sure I'd agree, but different strokes for different folks

I was under the impression that the stock had to be welded. Also, the forward PG is still problematic under the "featureless" guide, no?

I know it's a little more work to replace the piston.

Is the overall length less than 30" when folded?

Received mine yesterday, looks nice. I was so impressed with the service/refund they gave me that my second one will be delivered Tuesday. They also discounted shipping on the second one because it was too late to add on my first order. Great people to deal with.

If the OAL is similar to my AK74 including muzzle brake, then yes. IIRC the '74 is about 27-28" from the stock end of the receiver to the tip of the brake. I won't know for sure until I have it in my hot little paws though. Monday can't come soon enough.

Glad to see all these kits resurface at reasonable prices.

Regarding fixing the stock, it needs to be permanent (no definition, but needing a tool to reverse it has been sufficient). If you plan to go featureless, no forward pg. if mag locked, you need to fix the stock for OAL or add an extended muzzle attachment for 30" when the stock is folded

My kit arrived after about a week, and I have to say it is niiiiiiice. It looks like it underwent either a terrific refurbishment or was unissued. All of the parts are in terrific shape with a dark even finish. The barrel looks fine (it is a new US barrel) - can't say for certain what the finish is, but it looks like a very dark parkerize.

They packaged it well at Classic; everything was well wrapped and separated, so no scratches or dings to any parts in shipping. Even the plastic pistol grips and the rubber on the butt look cherry.

I'm excited to build this one. I've always wanted one of these wicked looking AMDs. I hope that fat muzzle brake is as annoying to other shooters as it looks like it should be!

I've "assembled" (note that I didn't say build) many AR's including milling 80%'s... Please answer these three questions: (1) is Classic's AMD65 kit only lacking a receiver and assembly rivets/bolts? (2) does Nodak offer a prebent receiver for this configuration? (3) can welding be avoided at all when assembling these (i.e.using bolts).

On the stock, look for the sticky in the Gunsmithing forum. It's very easy and reversible.

1) Yes.

2) Yes, the NDS-65. Childer's also makes a ready-to-assemble AMD-65 receiver. Shameless plug: I've used Childer's HT 80% blanks for other builds, their products and customer service are top-notch.

3) if you buy a 100% receiver, no welding is necessary; the only thing welded on an AK are the lower rails. I would STRONGLY recommend using rivets over screws for the build.

ETA: Thanks Nick, found it!

I bought a kit a week ago and it should be here shortly. Parts not included with the kit but required are the following (as Ive read)

Flat
922r parts (trigger kit, magazine)
Rivet pack
center support

CA maglock - amazon.

Am I missing anything?

I've read some reports that the barrel pin is brittle and could possibly break, might want to buy an oversized barrel pin from ak-builder, just for the $7 of insurance.

Isn't the current pin the standard 7mm?

Should be the standard, but if the fit isn't just right, you'll have to match the trunnion hole to the barrel hole.

Honestly, I'm not the best reference for this stuff, you might want to pose the question in the gun smith forum. I also notice that AK builder has two oversized pins now, might want to call him and ask him for his suggestion for the hungarian build, he'll give good advice.

Are these kits as easy as it seems? I've never put one together, but it seems like all I need is a receiver and a rivet gun ( or screws).

if your rivet gun also presses barrels that will work.
