Thinking of building a Type-56 on one of those B-West recievers here, but I'm at a loss as to where to find furniture and the FSB/bayolug for one. K-Var used to carry the FSB but they appear to be LONG out of stock.

www.polytechparts.com (Keng's) has complete 56s bbl. assemblies for a good price. I think Global may still have some. Global and K-var both carried Bulgarian AK47 (not AKM) fsb's that will fit the Chicom, check for the ones with 1/2" pin spacing. Only place I know for trunnions would be the MAK90 parts kits.

I used to marvel at AA-0K, but now I've come to realize they are masters of overpricing. I don't know about the Chinese items (never looked) but some of that Russian stuff.... NEW Russian AKM stock set, RARE $500!

Or how about the plum bayos? Why pay $49.99 at Northridge when you can buy our for $250?

I know it's off topic but Campy's link brought it back to my attention.

They do use 3/4 inch pin spacing, as well as all being hooded.

Ooops! See what happens when you don't have a rifle in the office? Global's B-622 is reasonable at $12.99. The hoods don't matter much to me but if you must have authenticity Keng's or AA-OK would be the way to go. My 56s had the fully hooded fsb, as well as both MAK90's (milled and stamped). My NHM91 has an open fsb, the 'ears' resemble what you see on AKM's where both NHM90's are obviously cut off hooded sights with portions of the light/adjustment hole on top visible where they were cut off.

For the fsb with the pig sticker assembly you'll probably have to scour the For Sale boards. Global used to sell them along with a few other vendors but apparently they've dried up. I know I've seen the bare fsb with the lugs somewhere recently--Numrich perhaps? I'll shoot ya an IM if I figure out where I saw them.

Thanks a bunch Wes, I usually dont think about Numrich for assy. parts.
Link Posted: 8/30/2003 2:31:42 PM EDT
Well, Numrich appears to be out too.

Geez, those things must be pretty cheesy...

Or there are a whole heck of a lot of of MAK90's with retro-fitted spike bayo assemblies!

You should see how many simple mistakes I have made lately! It's in the air...(footus-consumous)

I'm glad you mentioned having some non-hooded FSB's. Even though I posted that all Chinese should be hooded, I am certain I have seen some without it in pictures. But, you say they were cut which makes sense now. Thanks for the tidbit.

Trite as it sounds, I just want a AK that looks like the standard Chi-Com Vietnam AK....If I can find on it'll be the cheapest way to an old-fashioned Norinco Type 56. I cant justify spending $600 MORE dollars on a AKM for the privelidge of a gen-u-ine pre-ban. I know a lot of people get cheesed off at guys who thumb their nose at 922r, but once again, they have the money.
