gtbehary,

Does the Tapco flat function with no problems? I have two unbuilt kits and have contemplated bending my own, but will only do so if no issues exist in seating the mag properly. Otherwise, I may just get two of the Global Trades receivers.

Next question: How did you fit the receiver with the folder? Did you use a Dremel?

Nice work

Jim

I have MolyCoat and AlumnaGuard. I may try my hand at MolyCoat, if I can figure out how to use the airbrush.

Jim,
The mag fits great. The main part about the flats is your ability to weld in the lower rails. I use a spot welder. I used my milling machine for a perfect fit, but when I dimpled the rear rivet holes, the slot got distorted a little and I had to use a dremel to clean it up. Not a pretty picture! Thats why therr is no close-ups of the rear trunnion area!

And cleaning rod?



I realized that the cleaning rod was off after I took the pictures...it is on now.

Best choice for this build in my opinion. No extra holes to fill and since it is an AK-74, there wont be any gap between selector and top cover.

how well will the moly coat match the existing finish on the barrel and dust cover?

I am not sure. I have never used it before. I ordered the "satin black" so it should be close.

The AlumnHyde II that I used is a satin finish. I then oversprayed it with a clear polyurethane to give it a bit more shine.
