I have to apologize in advance if this seems like a stupid question. I'm the type to ask the question even if I think I understand it just to make sure I do in fact understand it.

I'm thinking of buying a Polish underfolder kit from gunthings.com if I buy the kit all I need to buy after that is this flat lower:

These rivets:

This this kit of 6 compliance parts:

And then I can at some point assemble my own complete lower. Is that the right lower for the underfolder?

I'd like to make sure I have everything I need and I do as much work on the kit as I can before I show up to a build party I'm hoping to be able to attend.

By the way you keep referring to the "lower" you're obviously an AR guy... :wink: No disrespect intended we were all newbies at one time. Welcome to the addiction...

You are correct with your asumption of the required parts with the exception of the flat. That flat will not work with the Polish UF. This is the flat that you need: http://www.copesdistributing.net/produc ... cts_id=417

Here's a guide to the rivets needed: http://ak-builder.com/modules.php?name= ... age&pid=21

IMHO, Copes is the best guy to buy parts from. His shipping is fast and cheap...

Different people at build parties will have all of the tools needed to make it into a complete rifle...

I hope this helps...

Good luck!!! :dance:

Sorry about that. I'm new to the world of EBRs in general; I assembled an AR a few months ago and I've been thinking now that I'm shooting it lot I've decided I need to add an AK soon too. Prior to this I've been more of a surplus military rifles guy.

I'll get that lower off copes then. He doesn't have any Polish underfolder kits though, and as far as my searching has shown no one else does either.

If I read that chart right I need the rivets for an AKS but it looks like copes only has the standard rivet sets.

Will do. It looks like I might have to get the rivets else where and the kit elsewhere but otherwise everything else I can get from him.

I see a lot of people bitching about tapco but would it be wise to stick with them or find another company's compliance parts.

Your gonna need a trigger group anyway. Most use the G2, a Tapco part, but availible everywhere. That will count as three US parts. Copes sell them too.

And, the Tapco gas piston is a good part also. Most people sell those as well. Thats four parts. Your receiver will be five, and you can source a pistol grip (US) somewhere like Copes, DPH, etc. for six.

I really wish Cope's would have sidefolder flats in 7x.62x39, but i spose i can just put in one big order with ak-builder and be done with it. Hope Curtis has everything in stock.
