I was wondering what the generally accepted order of demilling an AK is. I'm doing my first build, and seen lots of FAQ's about how to put it back together, but not many about taking it apart first. From what I can glean the order would be:

1) Clean Cosmoline off(duh)
2) Press out barrel pin/press out barrel
3) Grind off rivit tops
4) punch out Rivits

and reassemble per the various FAQ's from here

Oh, and my gas piston seems loose in the bolt assembally, is this normal? I have a chinese AK where there is like NO place on the piston at all, just wanted to see if that needed attention too


Secondly, I saw a thread about the ammunitionstore.com cheapie yugos. I happened to have gotten one at a local gunshow, for 90, which I think is a great deal. When I was cleaning the cosmoline off today, I noted a couple things. First, the kit was missing the recoil assembly, and it took god damn 7 weeks to get it from ammunitionstore, but thats another story that has been covered to death in other threads (SLOW SHIPPERS!!!!). 2nd, there are electro pencil marks EVERYWHERE on the kit. On the topcover, under the site, especilly the bolt assembaly, where it looks like some moron was just learning to use an electropencil and just doodled all over the gun. Has anyone else had that experience?

Oh, last thing I promise. My front trunion part of the kit is saw cut, while the rear is torch cut. Same on everyone elses?

Also, did anyone else get what appears to be an unfired barrel? I know how silly that sounds given the condition of these kits, but the rifling is damn strong on this kit. Its easily as good as on some of the rommys ive seen
