So I got a long story. I found this AK74 built by Jnewt on the EE. The rifle has the Bulgy ARM9 furniture on a milled 74 receiver w/15 mags and near 1000rd of ammo. All for $1k. So I plead w/ the member to sell it to me. He states that he has got a local sale and doesn't want to deal w/ the transfer from LA to NH. So I bummed out. I said screw it I'll build my own. So I search high and low for a milled 74 receiver. I called everyone (ORF,GT,Arsenal,Firingline,OOW,Tromix,prexsis­) no one has one and no one will make me one. WTF.

About a week later I get a email from a well known member here w/a outstanding feedback record. So this wizard of weapons tells me he has a firingline milled 74 receiver that he is willing to part with. For about $350 shipped. Fuck it I'll take it. I gladly send him a USPS MO for $350. The MO goes out at about 1300hrs. I get home that night check my email and find my old friend from LA has left me a email. I open it. It reads "Hi Jim still interested in that AK74 that jnewt built my local sale fell through". Okay I am in a deep shit. I really want this gun. So I tell him I'll take it and it should be a done deal by the end of next week.

So, what the hell do I build on that other receiver a milled krink?

I'd build a correct type three AK47. put some nice Ironwood furniture on there and get it stained in Russian Red. could make for a pretty sweet setup

There's a Type III underfolder kit on Gunbroker.

That would be my choice.

Great looking gun.

Is this site down? I had a good laugh at it a while ago, but now, I can't get it to come up. Was he tired of getting laughed at? Must not have been making any money off that site.
