Wondering how hard it is to build an ak from a flat receiver, Bending th receiver and fitting the barrel. I've assembled a ar 15 but all parts were ready to go.

Foreget the flat. Get yourself a bent reciver blank.

even if i have acess to a metal brake? My father inlaw does constuction and bends all of his own door and window trim. i have a drill press but i thought a Flat might be eisier.

Ill bet your father in laws brake is for bending aluminum coil stock. I have one of those and it is not anywhere near strong enough to bend .040 steel.You would need what is called a press brake.
