    Looks great.
    I love how the wear looks.
    I really want to build one of these up.

    Do you know anything about the provenance of the kit and the receiver? Who was the builder?

    It was cut up from a deact by me while in Germany. It came from Croatia, sold to Switzerland civilian market, imported and deactivated in Germany, then cut up and sent to the US....

    Very nice rifle, sir! It came out great, and I'm both very impressed and very jealous. You're in a very exclusive club, for sure, as very few of these are in this country and even fewer have received such a nice 'rebirth" so to speak. I actually used to own this particular kit, being the second owner to "fondle" it after Rob brought it in. It's super sweet, and I'm very happy to see it again in such an intact, authentic state of condition.

    That is a beautiful gun. I love the "been there done that" look.

    Thank you so much for doing that with these deacts. I now have two of your kits

    Cheers! It's kind of funny how these kits can be traced back to every owner for the most part since they are so rare.

    I did two batches of kits for friends/KCA members... The first batch was mostly 1980s, and 2 1982s... I kept one 1982 out of that batch... The 2nd batch was a couple 1989s (I kept one), one 1979 (Kept it for myself), and some 1982s...

    Anyways, here is pics of a 1982 AKS74..... Notice the serial.

    Amazing rifle. Thanks for the additional pictures, Rob. It's pretty awesome that you have handled and photographed every Kalashnikov on Earth!

    Stottman, those pics are awesome! Thank you for sharing!!! Saved to archives. Looks like the pistol grip got swapped out at one point.
