I've got a homebuilt amd-65, bent the receiver from a flat... I've never seen an ak up close before, so basically everything was done "blind", grinding until things fit together.. My question is, how do you remove the bolt/carrier for cleaning, etc? On mine, I'd have to remove the rear trunnion to slide everything out, but that wouldn't be possible on a rivet build of course, so I know I must be missing something. Pics would be very helpful. hot

The top rails should be cut out at the rear to allow removal.

ahh.... I thought so. What's the length of the notches? And what prevents the carrier from jumping out on it's own?

If the rails weren't notched, how did you get it together?

If you have no notches, you will need to make some. You will probably need a front notch too.

The rear was notched only to allow rear trunnion fitment....... Not further up the receiver like it shows in the pic.

Put the tang in, push the carrier back flush (on top of the rails), then mark your position. Grind down until it fits. I've seen some threads about the carrier jumping out before the rifle is "broken in", but I've never had a problem with it (the spring keeps it from bouncing up).

Should I make it a tight squeeze to get it out? Or should it just fall right out if I angle it upside down? h.gif
