I have an underfolder kit inbound and would like opinions on which receivers would be best for my build. I am a complete newbie on AK's.

Thanks,
Bob

I think most of us are buying the Armory USA receivers from Global Trades in Texas. They have the best reputation for being right dimensionally, they don't have the holes precut(and therefore not in the wrong place), but best of all they're heat-treated. But you need to tell us what kind of kit you got-- 7.62 or 5.45, Yugo, Bulgarian, Polish? Because all the factors affect which version you need--

It is a Grade 1 Polish underfolder in 7.62 from Akron Armory. According to an email I received yesterday, it should be here today.

Thanks,

Then what you need is a type-two, one millimeter thick in 7.62 caliber. Isn't that easy? They let me order my lowers and prepay, and then contact my FFL guy to have him send a copy of his license to them. Easy as pie. Just slide in the trunnions fore and aft to make sure it isn't warped before you start cutting the holes-- they're a lot better at weeding out the bad ones, but once in a while one slips through. There are a lot of other threads here about these lowers-- you should read them. Have f8un-- I sure am!

I came looking for a suggestion for the exact same kit.

What exactly are the cuts that need to be made to it though? Is it specifically because it's an underfolder?

--Take a look through the Build-It-Yourself forum (don't forget the back pages!) and you'll learn all you need to know. There are a couple good posts in the Polish section, too.

I need to do some searching but I have built two AKs on OOW receivers in the past and they worked fine other then the selector hole in the wrong location so I got a little gap... Are these the receivers that are not supposed to have this issue?

I want to do up my PMKMS and Yugo M-92 as nice as possible so I am loooking at all my receiver options... I do have one or two more OOW receivers waiting to be built but if there is a better option I am all ears!

I am building one also, the same kit and supplyer as you Bob, if the holes need to be drilled where do you get a template to do the drilling?

This will be my first AK build and I am full of questions. I have read a good share of the posts on the subject but still have a few grey areas....

I am leaning towards the Green light right now...

Be sure to post you findings ....

Thanks, "G".

I just figgured it out.......der

Ak-builder has the underfolder and sideolder flats without front trunion holes.

I've been looking at that one
I was just wondering about the quality of steel accuracy
of cuts etc. etc.
