I ordered a Romy AKM AK47 kit.

What receiver do I need to complete the build?

Do you recommend rivets or screws?

A stamped 7.62X39 receiver. I have used OOW and Arsenal 1mm with good results. I'm hearing good things about the Eubanks 2gen receiver, but I've not tryed one yet.
I reccomend rivets, but I'm old school. The rivets make it look more authentic.

Who makes the best rivet kit? Do I need the Center Support Sleeve with Rivet also?

Not if you buy a factory made receiver.

Could you guys submit a link or phone # for the armory receivers, There are several armory companies.

I bought a Armory Receiver and it is very nice. Does anyone know where I might be able to rent the tools to do the build?
