There are two links in the build ur self section I added today. One goes to pics of tools a guy is offering on the other board which includes go-nogo gauges and a pressing plate. The other one shows pics of a homemade jig just for pressing ak barrels.
Could you make a sticky and have these pictures added to our build section?
There's a pretty good thread going over there (ak47) about rivets. I plan on gaining some knowledge, doing some cut and paste, and bring the info over here when I have the time.
I really do want to build my own and with K-Vars 5.45 kit at $249 it's time for me to purchase the kit and learn about how to build it.
