Okay, I'm really wanting to get into the kit building thing, and a logical choice for a first kit for me seems to be a Tantal, as it's different than anything I have now and I want one anyway.
I know I need a Tantal kit, a receiver (will just any 5.45 AK receiver work? Can I get one with Tantal holes already in it?), a rivet kit....and what else?
I have a couple of nice drill presses, a vise, and I can get an arbor press if needed.
What kind of tooling do I need to:
1. set the rivets on the front and rear trunnions?
2. set the rivets on the trigger gaurd?
3. press the barrel back in, and more importantly, keep it straight?
Lastly, what compliance parts do I need? The stock has to remain foldable and I can't weld the muzzle device on.
