Well redneck art anyway. The Ak born from raw steel was what I was going for.

Made this today for a guy on here that has helped me out a lot. Going to cost a ton to ship it back. It will not be turning over when bumped that's for sure.

I didn't want cut the mag, so I hand milled a hole in the base to fit the angle of the mag. Then did 99% of the welding on the bottom side. Flat cleared the whole thing.





Now lets see how quick he can find this post. :twisted: This is what this forum is about guys helping each other out. Not the mighty dollar.

Nope that is my gravy for next week. $980.00 dollars in body and frame labor. I get 1/2 & I can fix it in about 8 hours. :wink:

That thing is just a couple of weeks old 2,251 miles. Sucks to be them. We have already put a front bumper on it. She wrecked on the way home from the dealer.

sweet jesus! is that a solid chunk of steel you welded the mag to?
1/4" steel c channel 10" long. It was a bitch to mill out that hole and slot for the mag rib.

Sweet! Can't wait to get it! Not sure if I will paint the base black, or maybe Manticore blue! :grin:

Make sure to post pics of that M231 build when you get a chance! :wink:

I may try to find a slick side upper . Other than that and a stamp sent off as soon as I can pony up the 200 bucks. Im done.






Unless a m231 handguard and gas block come up. For under $750 bucks I got quoted for a set. :confused:


Thank you , very MUCH for the tube. You saved me a lot of time. The whole thing had dupont flat clear on it. You should be able to spary any paint over it. I was going to paint the base red and panel bond some Ak rounds to the base.
