    Depending on price, I'm in for a couple.

    What's the guesstimate on cost?

    Your guys' eyes for detail is amazing. Besides the center rivet hole I can't spot a difference and to be honest with you I have no idea which rail is who's!

    The knowledge yall bring is breathtaking. I hope you're able to make and sell these!

    Not sure on price. They will be spoken for Iím sure, so next round if it happens. I hope it does, too many commitments already, I had a lot of commitments before we even finished the first batch we scrapped.

    Still need to chamfer holes but first one is done. No more than $200, no less then $120.

    Doug and AZAK know true cost margin is minimal. They are hand cut

    Coming soon... AK74N rails

    Pics Courtesy Rob Stott. Proportions wonít look right because of how the pics are taken differently.

    The radius under front nose and back bottom are correct on this but they all varied a little until 86-89.

    The length of the face then the front and back were measured over 6 rails and averaged out. The dims are all very very close. I had the lightening cuts pushed to the extreme of the examples, meaning we removed more material vs less.

    The only thing that may not be 100% is the fact that itís made from bar vs cast blank, and the scallop/lightening cut was a larger diameter but same width cutter then original so the lead in to the lightening cut wonít be perfect but itís really really close.

    I never wanted a rail on my AK74 until now. I personally would want to know if there was a possibility that I could get something like this before building with other examples because the holes are where they need to be and wonít match.

    Once I get mine, that I paid dearly for, Iíll mount it and make sure it looks right. Then when I get 10 Iíll price them, and I prefer to limit them based on future availability, and flippers arenít welcome.

    Big mistake. He warned you and now you're not eligible.

    Coming soon... AK74N rails

    Lol. Point being all the good repro rails end up on gunbroker as NOS factory rails.

    I think itís funny how many scope rails and receiver shells Radom potentially made if you go by the claims made. ďFactory Polish Scope Rail with random scope number not attached to a gun.Ē

    Pshhh why buy a AKMSL kit, you can get a NOS Polish scope rail for $200 and build your own...

    It is awesome. Itís a great build. I have repro polish rails too. A Tantal, a early AKM rail for a NSP-2 etc etc. this is a repro rail.

    We all build guns to look like the real deal. Thatís what we are doing here.

    I am stating I donít like the fact that people sell things as genuine on GB or anywhere else when they arenít genuine. It makes the water murky for the genuine articles when they do come up for sale.

    In your case, Iím sure you thought you were buying a real rail. The guy selling them knows the person making them. I donít agree with him misleading people, and it looks really legit so he got away with selling it for a big markup.

    Does that make your gun any less cool, no.

    I donít really care about the resale price of the AKMSL kits but I do think it makes it hard to sell a real kit when someone isnít being honest and selling repro rails as real. Just like I donít want flippers marketing this as real.
