AK & Variants Picture Thread


Recommended Posts

any reason you didnt/couldnt weld it flush with the back of the receiver? it looks good, but i cant help it'd look more natural if it fitted flush.

I admit You're right, but the UBR stock is pretty heavy compared to the skeleton one and I got bored of wobbling so just weldered the m4 tube adapter to the receiver. I know it's pretty redneck style but the gun is rock solid now.

 

 

 

 

@ Agent47: why would it be easier to get a mostly pot metal x47 receiver than make an m4 tube adapter and mount it to a fullsteel kalash or any fullsteel ak? :)

HAY GUYS! I has AK too. Can I join?

Finnaly put my RPK together. Its a genuine Russian Molot from 1973.   I bought it as a complete gun, but due to laws i had to remove and trash the receiver, BCG and barrel.   But all the rest (70%

I was just wondering if a regular AK receiver was compatible with the AKSU front end...

 

I don't have access to a machine shop or welding tools.

 

do you think an LCT X47 receiver for a Marui is pot metal???

Can't you just get an X47 receiver and mate it with an AKSU front end to make a Magpul'd AKSU?

 

You could, however for us nit-picky ones it isn't accurate. BHI uses the VLTOR buffer tube adapter, while Haley uses an ACE pignose adapter. By all means you can use the X47 receiver.

Nope, the LCT is made of steel, but you can only attach a compatible aks74u front set to it. The aks74u is mostly made for the 5.45x39 but the x47 receiver is for the 7,62x39 calibers.

Here's my Mag-K work in progress. The black top receiver cover is only temporary as I'm working on another one to accommodate for the ACR charging handles. Purist look away.

Crooked left/right up/down? You might be able to sort it out with a file on the high spots.

 

Crooked all over the damn place - there's no secure foothold for the whole thing at all.

So I started off with a VFC AK104PMC which included the upper gas tube RIS and the buffer tube extention (saved me a lot of grief). Custom work and parts that's been done so far:

-Filled rear scope mount holes and also the dimples above the magwell on the receiver in order to more closely resemble the Saiga receiver

-Painted with Alumahyde II

-KA SAW Grip

-KA Extended Mag catch

-LCT AK RIS

-Magpul CTR Milspec

-Magpul AFG

-Surefire M300A Scoutlight with Gear Sector offset mount

-Docter Sight

-Dytac AAC 18T Blackout Flashider

-Beta Project Bulgarian polymer magazine

 

Still in the works:

-Custom Bolt carrier with Ambi-ACR charging handles

-Custom top receiver cover to accommodate ambi- charging handles

-MIAD conversion

-Magpul XTM rail covers

-Possibly different optic

 

This project is less about parts and more about the custom work which I've been having trouble finding time to do.:mellow: But I hope to complete her soon.

The rail is slightly shorter than the AFG but it will fit on although it feels a little odd with the gun being so short.

 

I tried mine on Bersy's ASK74U above but it doesn't really look that great to be honest.

Yup, stamped steel receiver. It's a hybrid VFC/LCT style design, the outer-barrel fits like an LCT (The hop-up unit is bolted to the OB) but the rest of it all fits like a VFC (Trunnion, gasblock and sights all pin-fitted). If you had a VFC barrel and the spring and spacer for the hop-up unit you could convert it easily to a full VFC style gun, but I like the solid interface with the gearbox this provides.
