What's up guys. I'm about to take a journey to the Dark Side and was hoping someone around here could meet me halfway.

I've been wanting to build an plinking AK for a while now and with prepetual rise in 5.56 I think now is the time. I would really like to go with a Polish underfolder kit and a GlobalTrades(.com) complete receiver. The advice I've gotten so far is to buy a receiver that has not been drilled for the trunion yet and to use rivets. Buying tools for the project is not really a problem, I just need a guide to help with the contruction. Any takers?

I've built one Romanian AK kit into a rifle so far (with one more kit waiting on a receiver). I used the screw method to build it just because I didn't have access to a press to get the barrel in and out of the front trunion. I need to replace the trigger group with a US made G2-type group before I test fire it. There's an Eastman gunshow this weekend in Lawrenceville that I'm gonig to, however, it has been my experience in the past that there aren't too many dealers that have AK47 parts (at least the Macon gunshow a month ago was lacking in them).

If I can remember I'll post a few pics of the rifle later today if you like. What kind of questions do you have about it?
