Hey guys. I am new to the world of AK's. I bought an akm receiver last week and was wondering what parts kits I can use to build it? It is an NDS-3 receiver, here is the ad:

taken from:
NDS-3 Receiver

We also have a new "economy" AKM receiver available as of Feb. 2nd

It does not have some of the finer details of our forthcoming premium AKM and AK74 receivers, but is made to the same high standards. Like the rest of our products it will be FULLY heat treated 4130 to 40 on the Rockwell "C" scale.

Some of the features it DOES NOT HAVE are:


top rail step-down

laser-cut holes to eliminate stretch at trigger pin hole

lower left rail mag guide




pre-drilled rivet holes for Romanian fixed stock kits

fully heat treated 4130 steel

"S" and "F" selector markings

"X" and "Y" marks at hammer/trigger holes

competitively priced with ground UPS shipping included

NDS-3 "economy" AKM

So does that mean that a romanian fixed-stock kit is the only one I can use, or are there others?

Any European fixed stock AK kit (except a Yugo) will work with this receiver.

I just put a $99 romy kit on one tonight, as my first ever build, and everything fit perfectly, except that two of the three trigger/hammer/auto pins were too large for the receiver holes, but that was an easy fix (I modded the pin, not the hole).

I have no complaints whatsoever, ESPECIALLY for $55 delivered.
