I've got two builds in the works right now, one being a Romy AIM I'll be doing this winter and the other a Yugo M70 I'm having built, both of which should keep me occupied for the rest of the year (going back to school in a couple of weeks). But that got me thinking...what next?

I think for 2009 I want to get a Saiga shotgun, either a 12 or 20, and convert it myself, and an AK-74. I'm kicking myself for not getting a '74 this year, but I didn't want to get into another caliber, and now by the time I do, any cost savings on 5.45 over 7.62 will be lost, so it will purely be from a coolness standpoint. Either way I figure I need one. Haven't decided which yet, only that it will have to be equipped with either laminate Russian furniture or plum.

I'm sure the election probably has us all in buying mode. So what does everybody else have on the horizon?

I have a romanian RPK and a bulgie krink I'm trying to get as russianized as possible. Both are going to be expensive as hell, so it will be awhile. But I am EXCITED!

My next AK project is my AMD 65 "Khyber Pass" build. Featuring a Triangle folder, Optics Rail, PKAS-S red dot optic, Saiga style BHO lever, double hook trigger, Hotbarrel Gas Piston and a Moses reverse style extended brake. Just waiting on the brake and the receiver...



This is going to be fun...

For those of you who want a Saiga-12 I suggest you get them while you can. Prices are going through the roof... I'm glad I bought mine and converted it last year when I did.

I'm going to build up a Saiga .223, and give it a 74 Look/feel, Wood handguards bulged, Perhaps a Triangle Side folder. I have all the parts together, just need to find that .223 with dimples now :(.

Scoping a 91/30 right now...

Then i'm going to slap together a Wz88 kit most likely.

Mine is going to be a Kyber pass but i'm building my folding stock/hardware from scratch just like they do in the kyber pass and to see if I can do it too. I was going to use a polish kit but have since decided to use a romy with Russian wood and possibly a Russian front sight and gas block. filled out the paper work for a new batch of receivers this morning :dance:
