    I think it was an acceptable grey area. MOST of the AK kits came with all parts including the full auto sear. Everybody just tossed them or made keychains out of them.
    I had a dealer buddy that saved all of them and gave me a zip lock bag of them. At one point I had a bag of about 50 auto sears and disconnectors.... Long gone now, I had no use for them even as trinkets. Just tossed them in the dumpster at work.

    Get yourself a TAPCO G2 trigger set.

    Maybe it is just me but even absent the receiver aren't the FA parts something that needs to be registered? IOW can that kit be sent to the buyer directly, save for states where FA is not allowable? Something strikes me as odd.

    Good price for these days, but doesn't include a barrel.

    Building an AK sucks these days because it almost the same price as buying one. Parts kits used to be $79. when the rifles were $300.
    Now the parts kits are $300 and up and rifles are $500 and up.

    If you can't find an 80% receiver try a shovel.

    There are some kits about...US made barrels for AKs used to be complete garbage (soft steel etc)but both the nitriding alternative to a chrome bore and the better steel itself has made it a (slightly) improved option

    Oh aren’t you cute.... 10 years too late when things were affordable and tools were easy to find/buy.

    i’ve hand built 2 but I was using a friends tools. I have hand hammered a flat or two, but the heat treating of the holes didn’t work because after MANY magazines I have seen egging in the pin holes.

    started a topic Building An AK

    Building An AK

    Since Nog is building his own AR I gave it a thought and decided I would try my hand at same, save that I settled on building an AK instead. Face it, everyone builds ARs. It is the modern version of playing with an Erector Set (for those of us old enough to remember them).

    Just like ARs, you can find AK parts here and there and choose your own mix, so to speak. The key, of course, is a quality receiver. So happens I have one available and intend to use it for the build. Unfortunately, it started snowing today, is still falling, and is forecast to continue for most of the next several days.

    So the build will have to wait until spring because now I need the shovel for other things.
