Guys,

I am looking to build a AK74 or 47 russian parts set on to a registered receiver Class III (MG).

I need your collective advise on which year of parts kit I should do this with.

Understanding that some years are more desirable and costly, can you offer your opinion on possible a 1st and 2nd choice.

Thanks for the help and I really enjoy this board.

I would build an AK74. Much funner and controllable to shoot and ammo is super cheap right now....

What type of receiver are you building it on, chinese?? 223 or 7.62??

If you do a 74 then it depends on if you want word or plastic. If you want wood I would go with an early 80's. Most of the 74 kits ORF has are Russian/Bulgy kits anyway and are early 80's mfg.

A related question.

When compared to each other, what are the differences between 7.62 vs 5.45 when firing in full auto? I would guess that they would be near the same, but less recoil with the 5.45; am I wrong?

After reading your posts, looks like you have the machine gun hard-on. You need to get over that before it gets you in trouble...

plus your question was answered in my reply, 5.45 is waaaaay more controllable.

I have no interest in owning an MG in the U.S, got over that a long time ago. I am only asking because I simply don't know and I have zero knowledge about how MGs work and the rules/regulations put upon them. I figured, instead of searching all dark alleys of the internet, why not ask here? You guys are expereinced and knowledgeable and I am greatfull to everyone for the information that I've gotten from them.
