    Good idea.
    Two Rivers Arms is in Oklahoma but not sure how close to you.
    Do not buy parts or receiver until you get advice.

    Assuming you have no AK building tools or building skills you are looking at significant work and cost.

    You will be likely well into $1,000 in that rifle in all liklihood.

    A local builder or maybe Two Rivets Arms might have some good will work they are willing to do.
    Good Luck.

    Thanks I will look into 2 rivet arms and see if that can help. It's true I'm new to the AK platform but I'm not a total newb, I've worked on firearms my entire life and although I'm not a certified gunsmith I can do most of the simple stuff. But I realize some things need to be done by pros so that's why I need a good AK guy. Again thanks for the tip!

    I just got my replacement bolt (ROMY AKM) in the mail today. It sticks when in battery. I can't pull the bolt open. If i point the rifle up and bump the butt of the rifle with my hand a few times it will jiggle and the bolt will fall open. But it sticks every time when I slide the bolt carrier forward. The recoil spring is not installed when I do this. Why won't the bolt carrier rotate my ROMY bolt out of battery when I pull back on it?

    You probably need to headspace the bolt properly as stated a few posts back.... in an AK you cant simply drop the bolt in and go

    Of course I will have the head space checked but I don't see how that has anything to with my problem.

    The bolt has to be fitted to the front trunnion.

    I was thinking there must be some kind of fitting that needed to be done. Is it difficult or special tools needed? I am a machinist and amateur gunsmith so is it possible for me to fit the bolt myself.

    I never did it. There is a tutorial on here somewhere. That is why builders prefer matching numbers bolt/carrier and front trunnion for a build.
