I have found what I think looks like a good idea for a first kit. The barrel is already pressed into the reciever(i think) so i could skip that step. Here is the link
http://www.joeken.com/akparts.htm (i was looking at the Bulgarian AK47 Milled Parts Kit) I'm open for any suggestions but i wanted to keep it 7.62x39 and i would like to have wood stocks and am up for refinishing them. I was looking to cut the cost as much as possible but i've heard something about the rivets and having to buy expensive tools??? Also any clearification on keeping this all legal would be helpful.
Thanks to anyone that can help me out.

Maybe He's planning to mill down the receiver stub, to use as a front trunnion in a stamped receiver build?

Either that or he's confused

Just my two cents

Hunt up some of the links on assembly methods and decide if you're going to rivit, tap and screw it, or weld it together .
It will be easier on you to find a stamped kit to assemble.

Before my first A-K, I'd done a half-dozen ar's and fn-fal's. I still spent much more than the cost of a new sar 1.

If you just want a shooter, buy it.

Alright I've decided that I was getting myself in over my head. I think I am going to get a SAR-1 and later if I still want to learn the AK in and out I can attempt it then. Thanks for all of your input.
