This is my second build. It is intended to be classic looking along the lines of an AK 74.
I am keeping this one light and simple.
Also as cheap as possible.
EAA IZ 108. -- You will hate me if you know how little I paid.
MD flash hider -$30 @ MAA
Factory Trigger guard
Refinished Bulgarian AK74 wood -- from Markw1 ~$65 couldn't look nicer I modified it to fit on the S-12.
I like the 108 sight so I am happy to leave off the Upper Hand Guard.
Modified Bulgarian retainer -- Markw1 $12
G2 Double hook modified for pre-travel and over-travel polished--30 @ MAA
Tapco metal PG nut & Ugly Saw grip-- traded
Tapco puck for compliance $8 @ MAA
Homemade floor plates for Factory fives. --$0
(stupid ATF update on parts count messed me up)
I currently have 2 buttplates: one pretty Bulgarian, and a second one with a no name Sorbethane pad bonded to it with urethane.($8) Guess which one is more comfortable?
Now has Dinzag high type front site which was un finished. I chose to tap it for AR site post so it has a tritium front site.
I have also added a krebs style tab to the safety.
About the only things left are:
extend the mag release,
make a matching walnut PG,
profile the bolt just because,
maybe tune to run ultra weak ammo and regulate w/ autoplug.
