I bought a couple of AK kits, and I have been slowly acquiring the necessary parts to have them built into complete rifles.
USA-made muzzle device
USA made piston and retaining pin
I thought I had everything, then I realized I needed a semiauto "shepherd's hook" or RSA hammer/trigger pin retainer.
Is there anything else I am forgetting?
Sounds like everything.. Use E-clips though. I belive the size is 7/32. can't be sure though, I have'nt bought any for a while.. Take your axis pins to the hardware store, and ask for a E-Clip to fit in the retaining wire grove..
Save yourself money, and time buy using them..
