recent talk of matching numbers psl kits on centerfiresystems got me itching. (http://www.centerfiresystems.com/drakit.aspx) I've been looking up info on the internetzzz (google is not cooperating) on information on how to build one but to no avail.

I know cold steel solutions sells blank receivers but I'm not sure I'm ready to handle that since I can't find any info on what to do with a blank receiver. I think I rather buy a complete receiver from TGI for this.

Is this a pretty easy build compared to an ak build? Can I use the equipment at the ak bp to effectively build the psl?

picture is of what I hope to own one day(hopefully soon)

Exactly like any other AK build but with some cautions. Be very cafeful with pressing on that very long and thin barrel. Most kits still have the bayonet lug intact. To keep it, and I would, comply with 922r. If you grind it off, it will be compliant as is. There's an issue with out of spec (unfinished) scope rails from the kits. Extra long PSL rivets for the rear trunnion are avail. from AK Builder. I'd stick to 100 percent receivers. Two versions are avail. frim TGI.

I have a kit on the way. Thanks for the info on the barrel will be careful. Whats the deal with the scope rails do I need to order one? I have ordered the rivets from AK builders as well. Center fire has the receivers for $119.00. Is the one they sell any good. By the way the rear rivets have to be trimmed before crushing. One more question what about the fire control group which one to order.

Would you mind posting up pics of the kit when you receive it to get an idea of the conditions of the kits?
