Still have a bit to learn about setting rivets correctly but I'm hoping that I'll be able to take what I learned ...

That is one GORGEOUS AK Sir!
What metal finish did you use if any?
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

Nicely done! Was it a difficult build?

It was my first build, I'm far from an expert...actually it's my first AK of any type (though I do have more kits in the works)...

I found that it was much easier than I had thought.
not including the wood refinishing and/or painting the build was start to finish done in one day with a lot of breaks and distractions that pulled me away from the build process...

Looks like a great result - nice pics too (I separated those a bit to display better).
What was your source for the kit?

Glad to see you went with that receiver. I never did like the "non dimpled" receivers used on the WASR's.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Gorgeous! You did a great job! Congratulations!

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

The finish looks awesome. I'm not a big fan of the wooden foregrip forearm, but your set-up looks classy. Well-done.
Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!
