If someone wants to buuild an AK, what info do they need?
It appears that some or all different AK makes / models need different receivers. If I were to get, say, a Ewbanks or DCI receiver, how do I know I can get the correct parts (including the proper number of US parts) for it?
What other receivers are out there that could be used with easily-available, inexpensive parts kits?
Once I have a receiver and a box of parts, is there a certain amount of work that must be done by a gunsmith or machinist? I can correctly use a screwdriver or hammer two times out of three.
Please only technical (no political) replies. Yes, I'm in California. Yes, I'm aware of SB23. That isn't what I'm asking about
