Just put my first build together for the final time. I hope to shoot it again this weekend. I test fired it 2 weeks ago. It's a Romy built on a flat. When I bought the kit I didn't believe I could actually build a rifle without a machine shop. I would like to thank everyone who posted questions (so I didn't have to) and everyone who posted answers to all the questions.. I would especially like to thank real estate salesman for showing me that you can bend a flat without hundreds of dollars worth of tools and jigs. I wouldn't have even tried if not for his post on flat bending. I would also like to thank Mr. Kalashnikov for designing a rifle with only one critical tolerance. Without him we'd all be out of luck. THANKS ALL.

(1.) You're welcome! I'm glad to hear that I could help spread the evil.

(2.) What "one critical tolerance" are you talking about? I guess I should know this, but don't.

(3.) Pics?

Critical tolerance = headspace. All guns go kaboom if the headspace is too long. That was the only thing that REALLY scared me about this project. I'll work on pictures as soon as possible, although I don't think mine is as well done as most I've seen posted here. Again, thank you all for the inspiration.

I saved the thread but for some reason the pics are saved separately. I will try to combine them and repost (unless realestatesalesman objects, of course). I must warn you that it may take awhile and I may not be able to do it at all.

I don't care. I was thinking about posting the pics again myself, I've just been very busy, health problems, car wreck, ect., ect.
