My gun budget funding request has been approved by my supervisor!

I'm looking at building a Yugo underfolder to stay cheap, and I have a few concerns...

1. What's the right receiver? I don't have the equipment to bend flats, so I'll be buying a complete receiver. Does someone make an RPK receiver with the underfolder holes drilled already, or do I drill those myself?

2. I live in a condo, and don't have any significant "shop equipment" like a drill press for drilling into the old rivets. Will I be able to get by with the drive-screw method that's tacked here, with maybe regular screws for the trigger guard?

3. Who has the best deal right now on VG-excellent condition Yugo underfolder kits?

last I heard there was no such thing as an excellent to like new Yugo kit, they all seem to have lousy looking bores

Step one: Get some tools and a shop. Step two: Get a Romanian to practice on. Step three: Get a polish underfolder. Step four: Get a Yugo, but only if you feal lucky.

I have yet to encounter anyone who found building AKs to be easier than they expected.
