new conversion, almost finished

Recommended Posts

Almost finished with my 5.45x39 conversion and had some questions before continuing. Today I replaced my GB and FSB but haven't drilled the holes and put the pins in yet. I received an order of parts for this conversion today and the pins I ordered were left out, so I'm wondering if there's anything else I could use as suitable replacements for the pins. Also, since this is my first time working on a rifle to this extent, I'm not fully confident I have the GB aligned. Light and air both appear to be passing through the gas port, but for all I know the hole could be half covered by the GB. Just wondering if it's alright to take it out and fire off a couple rounds to test functionality before drilling and putting the pins in.


Other than that, all I should have left is to put in the bullet guide and k-var handguard (arriving tomorrow from Dinzag) and cut the HG retainer notch on the barrel.


Poor quality pic attached...
