Assembly time is short, that is the easy part. Trying to get ahold of the proper parts, mainly receivers to build on seems to take forever. I was ready to start assembly back in early Feb, and I am still waiting on receivers. And they are comming from three different places, different recievers, and all of them on backorder, Armory receivers being the longest on backorder, I am getting really impatiant now that it is warming up, I want to go shooting dangit.

You've obviously never ordered from Joken!!!

Took them almost three months.

or better yet, purchase a jig and bend your own receivers.

or better yet, buy the steel yourself, and weld your AK together, after cutting the steel to the correct dimensions between the stock and barrel section.

after asking a few questions about it , took me about 7 hours total.

really the AK is so simple :)

some of us are lucky and have ffl's with rec's all the time

Just make sure to order 3 receivers at a time from DCI.

OOW recievers from OOW 4-5 days!!!!

I think it's the glut of dirt-cheap Romanian kits that's affecting the receiver supply.

Everybody's building now. This time next year, I hope we're up to our eyeballs in receivers.

Yeah, Global reciever took 2.5 months

$11.99 for a flat and $150 for the jig. You can always sell the jig, I just don't like paying my FFL $25.00 for doing the paperwork on a receiver I can make my self for $12.00. I just received ten flats from Copes, excellent service and fast shipping, now I am going to order ten more.

The 80% Tapco flats are excellent a easy to work with and work fine. The 80% folded flats are another story they are a lot more work than I ever wanted to do and still I messed up a thirtyfive dollar receiver. I guess a lot of welding and patching it will work but it Is ugly.

I still have a folded flat receiver to do for my Yugo underfold but I bought a milling machine at Harbor Freight, so it should be easier, no more dremmel.

My 1st took forever since I also built my own jig (too cheap to pay $150 for something that I can machine out of the scrap bin for free). Bending my first recevier took awhile too since I'd never done it and wanted everything to be perfect. Once you get the 1st one built the next will go together in nothing flat (no pun intended).

as tom petty said,
the waiting is the hardest part.

Well, I did get one receiver about two weeks ago. I had two days of fun assembling that one. Now it really does not matter. Everything is under water up here now. Its snow melt and flooding season time. I won't even be able to get to the range now for at least a month, with the road going out to the range under 15 feet of water because the river is going into flood stage. Oh well. Thats life in the red river valley for ya. I guess I have enough work to catch up with too.

Since you have time to kill, why not get some scrap steel and play with making your own jigs.
It can be done with some thought. Not pictured in this thread are my bolt cutter riveters and the form for bending a flat made from 2"x3" box tubing, using bolts and jam nuts to get my dim's.
$ invested in scrap steel, less than $20
Sense of acomplishment, priceless.

Good luck,

you lucky bastard. I went to a class 3 dealer by me who claims to manufacture full auto kinks and such trying to get him to get/make some recievers so i would not have to pay FFL on them. He pretty much refused. Granted he also could not silver solder a FS on and tried to pin it on and failed. To say the least i am driving a bit farther for my needs...........
