    Exclamation 2017 INGO AK Build Party

    2017 INGO AK Build Party
    Saturday May 13, 2017
    10:00am - 4:00pm

    Diamond Collision Inc.
    292 S. County Road 800 E.
    Avon, Indiana 46123

    A huge thanks to AllenM for hosting the event. There is no fee to attend and build.

    Signup at thewabbitseason.com . Please sign up so we know how many people are planning to attend. Even if you are just observing or learning, you are very welcome to join us. Please sign up too. If you have an AK rifle that needs work, bring it to the party. I have already been asked by a group of AR shooters outside of INGO to attend. And yes, even if you don't sign up, you can still attend. If requested, I will bring my brine bucket for the first part of spot heating, but you must bring your own MAPP (not propane) gas.

    And if you need something beyond the AK build party, don't forget AllenM provides gunsmithing services.

    Get your kits now! Get them demilled before the party.

    Some sites that sell AK kits, flats, and rivets:
    ak-builder.com
    whatacountry.com
    apexgunparts.com
    armsofamerica.com
    requiemarms.com

    Steel Punches

    Drill Bits: 1/8", 5/32", 11/64", 3mm, 4mm - I prefer black oxide.

    Videos:
    AK Building Playlist
    AK Building - Demill Before You Party
    AK Building - Front Trunnion Demilling
    AK Building - Rear Trunnion Demilling
    AK Building - Trigger Guard Demilling

    This list will expand.

    I am looking forward to this.
    I have never done an AK build involving bending flats, I thought originally I would buy a kit and participate but I changed my mind and will just assist others as best as I can.
    I have a mill to help with drilling and an oversize press but it it very controllable.
    Along with much assorted tooling.

    whether heat treating is done that day or not I am curious if my induction heater is useful for that. Should be

    I Like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

    Is there an age limit? My son has been wanting an ak. Can't think of a better way to make it a heirloom than to make it ourselves.
