I had Saigaman2 of JBI Armory build this kit (K-var Bulgarian AK-105 barrel and Bulgarian AKS-74 parts) on an NDS-2SF for me. He has done some custom Saiga work for me before, which I have been very happy with. I am planning on picking this guy up tomorrow. I will probably switch the furniture out for all black polymer stuff, but I think it's still sexy in plum. I plan on SBR'ing this guy at some point, but the pinned muzzle device on it will have to do until then.

Whats that cost?

His price is $325 + parts. The barrel (virgin) was about $300 from K-var, the AKS-74 kit cost me $195 several years ago, and then the receiver was $105. Add some 922R compliance parts and the build cost, and it was about a grand.

I still need to chase down a 500M rear sight.

very nice, I'm on my way to 105dom myself. I do have a Bulgy 500m rear site, but took me forever to find. I now need a Russian. Another option is to take a Saiga site and have it engraved, have one of those as a backup option also.

That is a Damn nice AKS man. I also have JBI armory AK74. I initially wanted to do a build but, but ended up buying Jims personal rifle. It is by far the nicest AK I have ever owned or fired. Beer cans at 100+ are boring. Factory barrel and Duracoat finish, Russian plum stock set. I just added a Kobra optic and I must say it is a perfect setup. Jim does excellent work and I highly recommend him for any build. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do.

Keep looking, you will find one.

Never bad to have connections.

I've decided in the mean time to simply use the 1000m rear sight. I'll just self-impose the limit to 500m.

I don't think the 4" is going to restrict the rifle to 500m. Hell, my AKSU w/ 8" barrel keeps up with my 74 @ 300. I'm pretty sure that round will still be effective @ 100m, just won't be "correct" w/o that 500m site though

That's what I think when I look at it. Plus, I know that at 501 meters the round will hit the ground, no matter what angle you fire it at, which is why they have 500m rear sights.

probably right, leave it to the Russians to design a rifle that's only effective the the rear site app....

I need to post some more pics since I put all black polymer on it. Also, Jim domed the rivets on the inside of the front trunnio, as the Russians do.

Make sure you get a bulgy cause a russian wont work on that block as they are longer than the bulgy.

swap someone with a 106/107cr -

Looks great.

That being said, did you have any trouble contacting JBI or getting a response to questions? I left a phone message a week ago and then sent an e-mail with some questions a few days ago and no response. Im sure he does great work, but this would throw up a red flag for me when considering a "smith" for an ak build.

What was the turn around time for the build from when he received it to when you got it back?

Mine has a pinned muzzle device. I thought about pulling my SBR krink's barrel, and sticking the 12.5 inch barrel in it, but decided not to.
