Congratulations.

* Now a fair warning since I do believe it's not to late for ya...... Be advised; Once you build the first one you are toasted, building AKs is worst than crack.

I thought AK builder will replace the rear AMD trunnion with a pistol trunnion, i guess not. Congrats.

Its the original rear trunion with a solid aluminum block with the sling swivel tapped into it. I will try to get a pic

Yeah thats the mod Ak builder is using.
It should not be an issue but I'm, going to machine one from solid on my build.
I'm also going to shorten the barrel down to 9 3/4" and use a Krinkov gas piston. Lots of other work too.

if you have access to a drill press. remove those two rivets in the rear trunnion before you go to the build party. that alone could save you 30 to 45 minutes. you have to drill them almost 3/4 down before they come out.
patience will be your friend

Remember that 922R and 478.39 of the title 18 and 27 CFR DO NOT APPLY TO HAND GUNS
So slap it together out of all the imported parts you want.
This build is just getting better I thought I was going to have to dump more money into it like a rifle.

A 9.75 in long amd 65 would b awesome. Might have to do that for the next build

if you use the original trigger assy. you got to modify the hammer and the sear
that way they are not full auto parts any more
