    What is the next parts kit on your list?

    so... what's the next parts kit you're eyeballing? I just bought 2 1964 Romanian Model 63's. Should be here Monday. I think my next one will be another Polish KBK. Hard to choose between that and the AIMS-74. I haven't bought many kits lately. been busy with other stuff. hoping to get caught up for the year.

    Once I get re-employed, and all settled down here in Alaska, I want to try and find a AKS74u parts kit I know they are on the pricier side, and seem to be a little bit harder to find these days, but I really want one if it’s possible.

    definitely on the pricey side. I consider myself lucky to have one. Mine happens to be an '86 Tula. I would love to have 2 more Russian's and a Bulgarian.

    They are the one thing in my book that’s worth shelling out the $$, I figure Worst case scenario I track down an SLR-104ur and modify it It’d be nice to get a hold of a nice Tula though!!

    Romy RPK kit most likely, unless I decide to sell a kidney and get a complete Romy PSL... after I finish my Izzy Khyber that is. And then there are a couple of ARs waiting for uppers and or barrels... the madness must stop lol
    The Khyber is at the top of the priority list though.

    Galil bro... I want one so bad. I just figure once it's all said and done I'll be in it 1500-2k. I'm having a kid though, so I'm currently on firearms diet. Shit sucks.

    If the current ones I’m working or planning on working on, go smooth, and if it’s not too much more work compared to regular AK kits, I’d like to try an M76 after that. But that would still be a long time coming with how expensive they are and all that.

    Galil kits aren't too bad... they're somewhere in the neighborhood of $350-$400. I think I've got 4 or 5 of them, but have yet to build one. Congrats on the kid!

    I'm through buying kits for now, I have 30 kits that I need to start building now that I'm pretty much settled in after moving to AZ. I have a few multiples that I might trade if the right one comes along. The first being built are a SVD and EG 74N then M76

    I'm looking forward to building an M76. I've got a few of the kits. They are a little more now than they were when I got mine, but I think the price is still pretty good for what they are.

    30 kits! So you’re one of those SOB’s that buys and hoards kits so the rest of us can’t find them. I mean, I accept it, it’s capitalism, but seriously man, if you have more than a dozen unbuilt kits, you’re just hurting the hobby in my honest opinion.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention the Galil kit sitting on the shelf right now. With all the other plates I've got spinning I might decide to let it go to a good home and get built. Could invest the money into something else.

    I bought kits because I could. I have not built most because I lived in CA until 5 months ago. You could not or would not pay for most of my kits. I have also done more for this hobby and countless builders then you ever will. So to sum it up I could care less about your opinion.

    this is literally one of the dumbest comments I've ever read on this forum. if you've got a problem with people buying kits in any number, you should probably just show yourself to the door. most serious collectors/builders have at least that many kits. hell, I've got 40-50 myself. I think I'm going to buy more next week just so you can't get them. just 'cause I can, and I'm an evil kit hoarding SOB.

    Not to piss anyone off but boxes of goodness. I also have barrels and receivers for all kits. Also matching scopes for a Yugo M76 and Polish AKMSL besides scopes for another M76 and EG MPi-AKS 74N
