    The reason most folks fail when trying to replicate this model is the scarcity of T2 parts kits. And spade grips.

    Also in the above photo you can see no latch pin protruding through the bottom of the receiver in front of the mag well!!
    The milled receiver is recessed under the chamber area and there is a cover plate. You cannot see what is holding the spring if it does penetrate the bottom of the receiver because the cover plate obscures it. It would be nice to see what mechanism they cobbled up for it though.

    ...Why is there a milled receiver, in 5.45, with a 1984 date and Izhmash logo?

    I assume this is just a matter of them copying the the markings exactly from some other weapon, yes? Missing the forest (wrong receiver type ) for the trees (but at least I got that Izhmash logo! )?

    Hard telling what calibre it is. They just cobble up parts and make the base rifle what they want. Normally 7.62. Kinda made me think about doing a milled Khyber but I hate to hog up a milled receiver for a Khyber. I do like them BFPU and mixmasters. BTDT

    These are good examples of what NOT to do with an AK if you want it to cycle properly. A close friend in Pakistan informs me that in his opinion only one...maybe 2 AK's out of 5 cycle through a 30 rd mag without something malfunctioning. The sad thing is that there seems to be an abundance of Type 1 and Type 2 Kalashnikov's floating about...some being butchered by the looks of these pics. What i would'nt give!!!

    In his 1922 book, Story of the North West Frontier Province, author JM Ewart writes: “That gap in the low hills (south of Peshawar city) marks the Kohat Pass, which really has a better claim to being a historic highway of invasion than the Khyber itself. By it, across a neck of Afridi country, runs the Frontier Road to Kohat and Bannu, to Dera Ismail Khan and Razmak. The villages of the pass are famed for a strange industry — the manufacture entirely by hand of rifles and ammunitions, especially rifles, to the eye so like the products of European arsenals as to deceive all but experts. For these, since they are comparatively cheap and serviceable, there is a ready sale all along the border.”

    Going by what Ewart wrote, it seems that Darra Adam Khel’s armament industry and black market was well-established and well-known even a century ago. In 1920, there was no centralized market, but scattered units located away from the main highway which passes through the region. It was only after independence that a market, in the true sense of the word, emerged.
