    One of my major goals with this was to figure out what year the change to punch pressed parts occurred, whether it be 1987 or 1988. Kslay88 found some pictures of an '88 that I'm excited to report probably brings this question to an end. Check it out:

    1988 a .jpg
    1988 b .jpg
    1988 c.jpg

    I immediately texted these images to Doug/Tantal, and much to my excitement this was his reply (which he has been generous enough to let me share with the community):

    "Yes, this is a transitional rifle using parts made to be pinned but were instead pinch pressed.

    To me it indicates the exact time period in which they switched over.

    They just didnít have the cast parts process changed over to omit the starter holes, yet."

    And Doug followed that up with this:

    "They did the same thing when they switched over on the Izhmash lines, as there was no need to shitcan possible thousands of parts, already made and sitting in the bins, when you can still install them as they are using the new process."



    So I think this might finally put the question to bed. 1988 is the year Tula switched to punch pressed parts.

    Well I've got my hands on a late-era kit finally thanks to some friends on this forum.


    Definitely is time to redo this guide. If anyone can host the images for me, shoot me a PM. That "proudly hosted by photobucket" shit has to go

    Yeah working on an update that's gonna break down each part of the FCG. in the meantime, you can post pictures of yours if you'd like and I'll ID them. Here's some I have handy-







    Not pictured is the AKSU spacer, which goes in place of the rate reducer. I believe pictures of it in the original post should suffice hopefully, only Tula AKSU's had em.

    I just got weaponmark selector markings for a '92 AKSU. Here they are laid out next to a receiver stub from a '92:
