I made the final part for my second AK 74 last night. I am now on my way to do some test firing and final tweaking. Hopefully I can get them blasted and parked tonight.

I have thought about building an AK. Just never got to it. I have heard the Egyptian parts kits are pretty good.... Well better than the romanian. What kind of accuracy are you getting out of your built rifles?

I have only benched one so far. It is a Polish Tantal built on an NDS "economy" receiver. Once I got the sights regulated, it was producing 1/2 inch groups at 25 yrds using Russian surplus ammo. I was very pleased with it. I ran out of time so I was not able to set the target out farther.
I wasn't able to get to the range today. I now have both rifles disassembled and will prep them for blast, park, and paint this week end.

Blasted and parked. Now for paint. GOD willing, I'll get that done tomorrow and maybe get to the range. I have a couple of FNFALs that need to be sighted and I also have some Austrian 308 that I haven't tested yet.

Today I took my newly assembled Bulgarian 74 to the range. Benched and bagged it would not produce a group at all. At 100 yards, the pattern was 12 inches wide and 11 inches tall. No key holes. Just a sorry pattern. I was using Bulgarian and Russian surplus ammo. The barrel was virgin chrome lined, but of unknown origin.
I have to say that I have never been so disappointed in a firearm in my life.

Just in case some joker wants to claim that it is my shooting skills, I also took two of my FNFALs with StG58 barrels and both produced consistent 2.5 inch groups with Austrian and Australian surplus ammo.
