    1979 Romanian "G" kit with matching numbers. Was rusty when I got it, and has some light external pitting. Internally looks like it was rarely if ever fired. All matching numbers, Neat serial of KE 0065. Am going to build with a home bent Tapco flat, Tapco internals, Tapco muzzlebrake and a Tapco pistol grip.

    Flat rods? No I will have access to a bending jig in a couple of weeks though for a short period, which is what prompted me to do this...

    The only tools I own are a set of hand tools and a tap and die set. I'm gonna be using a bending jig that is a traveling loaner jig from The AKFiles.

    You only have to serialize if you are going to sell them... OTOH if you are concerned about another AWB that makes sense, that way they "exist" already...

    You may want to check out AKBuilder.com. I got their bending dies, they work great. Of course you need a 12 ton press.
