I'm interested in building a Yugo underfolder. This would be my frist build and I've got little to know experience with AK's. But I figure you need to learn sometime eh?

DCI has a Yugo reciever, www.nodakspud.com/page2.htm that look to be predrilled and ready to go. They are listed as being 1.5m thick... Is this going to require shaving down the stock trunions?

Assuming I pickup one of the rivet tools I've seen for sale, is this really a bolt it together and headspace project? Is it foolhardy to even try without having someone walk you through it?

Is it possible to build a Polish underfolder on this receiver?

Much obliged,

youve got to rivet it, finish coat it, install the FCG, and then backwards field strip it. you probably wont even have to headspace it, since it was headspaced before it was demilled and it should have the same spacing when you reinstall the barrel (unless you go drilling new pin slots in it).

its not all that difficult, but everyone around here recommends building a Romy first. but i wouldnt imagine that a Yugo underfolder would be all that difficult compared to a Romy, so idont see why you wouldnt be able to do it.

and a polish one, dont build it on that reciever. that one's got the front trunnion swells in it for the Yugo, and the Polskis use a regular AKM reciever. unless you mean just the folding stock on that rifle, in which case im inclined to think it would fit all right.

hope this helps, and i hope you get in on a build one way or another

The DCI M70 receiver is made to work with the Yugo M70 trunion and rear block, without narrowing of the internal parts.
The material thickness is to duplicate the thickness of the original Yugo receiver.
Thanks.

I used a DCI receiver, and I would HIGHLY recommend it. I don't think these could fit any better if they were custom made to your kit. I've heard all the horror stories about things not being right and I was very relieved when I got this reciever, VERY minor fitting required. Easy build. Yes you can do it yourself. Take your time, read all you can, then go for it. (I used a few punches, some steel rod to make the rivet head punch, and a press. I know others that said they did not use a press, but my barrel was VERY hard to get out and back in.) (Oh yeah, Dremel, and small carbide cutter, vice, and a few chunks of metal to back the rivets)Good luck, and HAVE FUN! (My bore looked like crap, but it shoots nice)

I have bought 5 DCI receivers & they are all alike, very good for the build & the money. If you are going to build any Yugo ; buy a DCI receiver and do it right the first time. These are great receivers. Now I am waiting on the AKM version that is supposed to be here in January 2006....

Very much obliged all. I'm actually giddy as a kid at Christmas about doing this build. Seems to me this could be a whole new level of addiction.... *grin*
