Rivets are so 19th Century, Home built AKs

Damn finally! I have done quite a few Saiga mods and debanned a few AKs.
However, I never finished a build. Well I guess building from a completed NOdak spud frame is almost a whole build.
It was a tantal kit.

Costs:
tantal kit shipped from gunthings $234
hotbarrel piston $15
Nodak frame $96
FFL transfer $25
g2 $25
baseplate for mag. Already had it
tools ,well way too many hours welding grinding and sweating.
So $400 ish into a rifle.

See I got into the kit collecting and building thing way too late. Well actually I had a few kits before I just was way too busy to build anything. I find that if I know I have to invest a lot of energy into building tools and such I put off the project.

The demil and build went pretty smooth, I kinda crunched the rivets a bit and then one hole on the frame had to be reamed a bit. I do also need to open up the magwell ever so slightly because only half of my mags go in really smoothly. To do the rivets I am using a set of modified bolt cutters which work ok. I would love to get a fancy ak builder rivet tool, however I am giving Curtis too much of my money anyway. The headspace was good and cycles and all. Of course the real test is how it groups on paper.

I think I am going to start into bending my own flats so this will probably be the only build like this. So there goes another $200 plus bones to Curtis at www.akbuilder.com.
headspace was good and cycles and all.
My next build is a Full stock Bulgarian ak-74 build and I will do a detailed step by step for that one and post it here.

Lastly a pic of it with last week's project, the Saiga 12. I did a very basic pistol grip conversion to this. I got to practice my welding on this. Man my welding foo is weak.
Next project will be heavy in detail. For all 3 of you that read this blog.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
