You want this one:

The "A" frame is not AK building friendly.

This comes up from time to time. My advise: Buy the biggest press that you can afford! You will not be sorry! My Harbor Freight 20 ton has not let me down yet! It has grunted pretty hard while pressing out a couple of barrel pins, however, nothing has bent, sprung, or broke yet!

Yours,

My 12 ton will cause a lot of damage if you're not careful. It has some serious power without even going near the limits. I'd say the 12 ton is plenty sufficient for any building. Save your money to spend on ammo. My .02
