Building AKs
 
Okay, so I'm toying with the idea of starting to get stuff together to build an AK, since I traded my last one in on a Colt 6920 (blasphemy, I know!). So, other than a parts kit, barrel, receiver, and fire control parts, what do I need? What tools do I need? I've been looking at some of the kits on AK builder; either a Bulgarian 5.45 (since I still have several hundred rounds of 5.45), or maybe a Kyber Pass type 7.62.

Not sure what you will need to put a kit together, but from what I have read- it would take much less in the way of tools and effort to convert a Saiga rifle... That is the route I would go if it were me. Just my $.02

I would rather have an AK than a converted saiga.... I strongly dissuade you from a bent flat, a nodak receiver is much more stout and already pre hardened.

Otherwise look at learning to spot weld to possibly build up the ejector, buy a magnet for the heat treating process, buy a press, and some jigs...

here are the gory details. Good luck!

I'm planning on buying a ready-to-go receiver from Nodak Spud. What tools would I need to assemble this, and what other parts (mainly 922R compliance parts) would I need to complete it?

Thanks. Unfortunately, that's blocked from my work computer (though this site isn't; strange, huh?).

Well I promise you, when you get home you will have more info than you know what to do with, and way more details than can be put in this thread. Good luck!
