    this all matching '86 Tula is one of my favorites. I was late to the game on all of this, but I still got a smokin' deal on it.

    Prolly a Galil, unless a random container full of Chinese kits wash ashore.

    Bought mine in 2011. 74U LLC receiver. Stamp in hand.

    I was all ready to build this in 2016 then the ITAR thing shut down most barrel population options. That deflated my balloon. My barrel is an oversize bluejack V5.

    Then I decided to go with BR7.62 for the build. When I was ready to send it his intake valve got stuck in the closed position.

    So I continue to wait. I'd rather not rush. The benefit is that techno developed his paint so I can do it right the first time.













    Genuine Russian laser for it.

    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    WTB Late East German 7.62 top cover and gas tube numbered 687.

    I'm not up much on the value of Chinese kits. what's the approximate value of a Milled Polytech kit with original barrel and saw-cut receiver?

    Imported milled kit is probably worth about the same as an imported stamped kit because they use the same barrels. Complete would fetch $600-$700. Add a little more for a kit with a spiker barrel.

    Less for a post ban kit because all the neutered parts would need to be replaced.

    Military deact kits can range from $1200-$1500 for a stamped receiver variant and as much as $3-4k for a complete Vietnam era milled example.

    Not particularly special, but for a newbie I was excited to get my M70B1 kit. Prolly wait until next spring to start on this one. It came with a pulled YUGO barrel, but the bore was pretty beat up so I picked up a new U.S. made barrel I got for cheap on the files.

    Haven't bought a kit in awhile. I got to the point where projects were backing up and nothing was getting done. I still got a unfinished CETME kit on my bench. Actually suprised its not rusty by now.

    I told myself i would not buy until i built what i have. Although i have about 8 kits left, they arent the kind of kits i can bang out in half a day. That being said, im good for about 3-5 years.

    I think it is special. Very cool kit. Matching buttstock is always good.

    I am not looking for another kit. I have this kit to get built. Russian milled underfolder. I am not sure which of these parts are correct for this kit or what parts I need to buy. I know I need a trigger group. I know the grips are wrong. I bought the correct dust cover from another AK Forum member since the kit came with a Yugo cover. The bolt is labeled as Type II. Some of the parts have cosmoline on them. Some forum members told me to get it rewelded and not use my CNC Warrior receiver. I plan on having it rewelded.

    Kinda slowly getting back to some AK builds.
    Got sidetracked with the AR15 prices. Assembled a few of those and my first intermediate cartridge AR15 pistol.
    Kinda neat and went with the right side charging handle.

    Built a parts gun AKM pistol and used the CNC Warrior right side folding arm brace.
    Nice shooter.
    Used a lathed down Zastava M92 pattern barrel.

    Gonna start on a Russian AK74 soon.

    Just finished trouble shooting and fixing a problematic ORF M76 rifle.
    Bolt/carrier locking up in battery.
    Shoots great now.
    I built a number of them some years ago.
    Even a shorter barreled M76 I named the AK-M76.

    yeah, you really lucked up by getting in on that M76 stuff. I would love to have been in on that. I know you ended up with a bunch of nice parts. did you end up with some complete kits?

    Yes., I purchased a number of kits and scopes along with parts from ORF when Todd was closing down the operation and factory. In before the lawyers.

    The crates of M76 rikits and parts and accessories...,the bolts and carries laid out in the warehouse for serial matching.


    The M76 kits were held up in 2004 in Germany enroute to export. Then the barrel ban caught up with the shipment.
    the serialized parts became mixed during the barrel demil. kind of a ness.

    A first wave were imported with original barrels in place. But they were the small number of imported M76 kits.
