Anyone doing any AK builds in FL? I am trying to decide between a 100% receiver for my polish underfolder or a bending a flat...but I don't have a press or spot welder so bending isn't possible without help from another builder.

thx

I am also looking into this and have some tools like press ,dremel, vise, grinder ,drillpress. Hell if we can get this together everybody can post here.

If this is your first build, it's probably better to just get a finished receiver. It is very time-consuming to bend, heat treat, grind, etc. on a bent flat, not to mention very costly if you don't have the bending jig or welder access.

You want your first experience to be a good one and not get all frustrated. In fact, it may be better to start out with a plain ol' Romanian kit.

See Vic over at Florida Ammo Traders for any parts you might need. I think he still may have some kits left. One of the "good guys".
