Heck, even my girlfriend wants a rifle now that the gun ban is ending. Is anyone planning an AR build soon?

I'm thinking about hosting an AR, AK, FAL & UZI build (probably separate get-togethers) later this year. Any interest?

Black Fox, whereabouts are you located?

He is about 20 miles west of Richmond.

I'm in!

Because I would be VERY interested (AK and AR builds). Can you point me to a UZI information site?

Anybody have the skill/ability to bend an AK flat? If so, I'd love to build an AMD65.

Here is the site I was looking at for the AK supplies:

www.acearms.com/cgi-bin/ccp51/cp-app.cgi

Anyone have any experience with them or building an AK? There appear to be several good places to find information about how to do this, including www.gunco.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1864

I'd be in for an AK74 maybe. If we could find someone who knew what the hell they were doing.

I could possibly be in for another FAL too. (actually one or the other) I kinda miss my Izzy.

Tops shop will be hosting a mobil BYO Black rifle build, just need someone to host it and they will come.

I have all the tools needed and would gladly assist anyone.

Let me know

I'd be interested in an AK build.

Side note: I need someone to help me install a FF handguard.

Just an FYI - our AK-47 section here does have a "built it yourself" section with some great walkthroughs.... I think we have plenty of AR and FAL knowledge here, so those shouldn't be too bad (just the planning for buying appropriate parts kits, etc.)

Now I feel left out.

Just kidding. We got home late and I've been busy un-neutering some uppers since I got home. I just wish I could get out to a range sometime before the weekend...

I think it'll be packed as hell with 'gun enthusiasts' such as us testing they're no ban guns. Maybe Thursday too. Weds I always get 1 hr of lane use Thursdays I can get 1.5-2hrs before getting bumped of the lane.

I'd love to, but these next two weeks are going to be really busy at work. Sat morning is the best I can hope for.

Driftpunch is the man for building stuff, he should have some good info on AK's. Give him a ring.

Steve out.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 8:23:40 AM EST
Though not an AR, I'm building an Izzy LB FAL. I've got all the parts and receiver, just need to refinish the wood furniture.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 9:57:23 AM EST
I wanna build an AMD65! Tapco has the kit, receiver flat, rivets and all the compliance parts you need for $189.99. How do we do this guys? Somebody must have a jig and the skills to help us out for a group build.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 10:07:02 AM EST
I've got like 5 AKs that desperately need new triggers.... and some triggers that desperatly need to be in an AK.
Link Posted: 9/13/2004 2:51:10 PM EST
I do not work on Commie rifles since I know squat about them, but would help out on an AR build with no problems.

Cole's in Moyock, NC. (Rt 168 at the Va./NC. border)does alot of AK work. He has done things such as shorten barrels, complete builds, etc. I don't know about prices though. I may be taking a SAR 1 there soon to have some barrel work done.
Link Posted: 9/24/2004 6:27:41 PM EST
Any new info...

Not really?! I was hoping someone here had built an AK, FAL, etc., before and would be able to help us with some of the lessons learned. I guess I need to make some time to read the "build it yourself" forums now that I'm not working 80-hour weeks like I have been the last several weeks! Sounds like the AK kits from Tapco are a good deal, and may be the best starting point for us?
