What kind of parts kit do you guys think would work best for a khyber pass build? (besides russian of course)

I was thinking maybe a polish akm would be better than a romanian, but I'm not sure if the extra cost would be worth it (plus add the fact that polish kits are getting hard to find). What about a hungarian AMMS?

Basically, I'd like to know which one looks most like a russian AKM when it's done.

If you've built one and had success with it, let me know what kind of kit you used.

If all else fails, I'll buy one of these kits.

Personally, I'd just build in on a romainian kit and if you want to get fancy for about $140 you can replace a lot of the parts with russian stuff from RED*DAWN.

Like other people have said, these things were cobbled together with parts at hand.

I probably will use a rommy, simply for the cost aspect and extra parts left over.

But what I ment in my origional question was which one looks most like a russian. I figured a polish one would, so idealy, thats what I would like to use, but I can't seem to find any at a reasonable price.

Please define "reasonable price" on a Polish kit.

Under $350???

All the ones I've seen are around $450.

Actually, I had thought of using a complete gun and doing the side folder chop shop style, but I can't find any polish Aks in my area.

...and what is your budget for the completed rifle?

Budget? I guess aound $650, but I don't set budgets for myself, they just get in the way. I'd rather just find fair prices on whatever I am looking for.

wow.

maybe i shoulda kept mine to sell later instead of building on it.

i've got a romy kit with (i think) chinese handguards i picked up from h8mtv (great guy btw!) and will be putting it on one of Curtis' sidefolder flats with the magwell opened up to the 7.62 dimension. if i don't like the look of the chinese wood, i'll get some ironwood stuff.

Kyber Pass AK

I am building one as we speak on a Romanian parts kit. A couple of weeks ago I did the riveting on the NDS1KP receiver, all rivets formed nicely. Since then I parkerized it, pressed in the barrel, headspaced it and this past weekend I applied the HK Black Duracoat. I'll give the Duracoat a week to cure before I put the orange/red marbled grip and handguards on it. I have already pre-fitted the parts before applying the finish. I learned that lesson long ago.

I had two built on Polish U/F kits with K-Var Russian side folding stocks.
I bought some Bulgy black plastic furinture for one and used the wood from a Egyptian AK for another.
