    Update:

    Sending this puppy off here to Meridian Defense tentative this week. I simply will never have the time for this so I'm just going to throw money at it for what seems like is a pretty bang-on company. Probably going to be a complete rebuild as discussed before. The cats at Meridian seem pretty cool and their builds look top notch. Anybody in here ever get work done by them?

    Sorry for not responding to that, AK. "Commercial receiver" is just what they told me @ Recreator. I know pathetically little about the nuts & bolts of AK's.

    This has nothing to do with your choice of builder.

    But they want 1,600 for a Romanian parts kit build on an American receiver and nitride barrel... yikes

    Anybody have any suggestions for any other AK surgeons/rebuilders? So far Meridian hasn't had the best customer service.

    I'm also looking at Lee Armory in AZ and Front Line Armory in PA.

    Alright. She's heading off tomorrow. I courted 6 firms and 3 made the short list. Mesa Kinetic in LA got the job. It just came down to my interaction with them, an email chain and a couple phone calls. Their enthusiasm and overall positive attitude about the job sold me. Will advise.

    Looks like I might have caught you too late. I could probably diagnose it for free. You’d just have to pay some shipping. Sorry, good luck. If you change your mind just LMK.
    Big thanks to Moses1986, 10Gauge, Pookie, NFA ARMS, Duck Durbin and everyone that served this country.

    Mesa's diagnosing for free as well. Meridian wanted nearly 100 bucks just to look at it, plus their overall interest was a bit lackluster. I guess they got enough work with their builds, fair enough… no hard feelings. Clearly they do beautiful work. I won't say who the finalists were but it was a tough decision. I'm easily looking at $500-600 for the rebuild but considering what Bulgarian kits are going for these days it will be a wash. She'll be a stunner when she's finally back in the saddle.

    I really appreciate your interest though, brother. Cheers!
