I'll pick up a 20 ton press tomorrow and a set of bolt-cutters to make a rivet tool from. Today, I made a jig for setting the trigger guard rivets. My receivers are now complete except for the trunion holes, but I think I can make a tape-on template from the trunions to drill them. I should have two trunioned receivers complete by the weekend. Should I blast them and parkerize them or just paint them? I also have little information about head-spacing them; is this done after pressing the barrels in? I think I will strip the wood and bleach it before finishing. I guess an AK isn't supposed to be a pretty weapon but then again, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
