So friends, my journey to becoming a AKbuilder and a AKowner has come to a head. After much blood, sweat,tears(metal splinters HURT), and dollars. I am on the final stage of my AK build. Thanks to all here that have supported and helped me with this bastard of a build. I think everything that could go wrong in a AK build happened to me at least twice. But my final step is to finish the receiver. I have had it blasted with sand and am planning on a parkerizing it and maybe painting it with some form of duracoat after the park. I have also attached a picture of my frankenAK. Its a receiver from a board member(yes bent to fit in the box , a stock and rear trunnion from yet another board member, combined with Tapco 922R parts and the parts kit from a AMD-65. Thank you all again for all your help with this. Let me know what you think. Its my first build.
