This boat is getting crowded because I'm in it to, but I'm up for the learning experience. I'll chip in to help on the cost of the steaks or bring anything else that's needed lol.

I have a little experience with AKs. The only tools I have is a jig for pressing in/out barrels. I had to remove an ak barrel once before. I've fixed some canted sights and what not also. The hardest part is riveting from what I gather and I don't have any of those tools. I'd be interested in learning flat bending and riveting if this thing goes through.

I'd also like to do a browning 1919 build party if anyone has any experience with that.

That should be pretty easy if your using a kit gun (matching barrel and front trunnion). Just need to rivet it all in your new receiver.

A professionally bent receiver with rails installed is the way to go. Has the old receiver pieces been removed from the front and rear trunions? Has the long rivets been removed from the rear trunion? Do you have a drill press?

Hmmm, I have a hydraulic press, drill press, air tools, welder, torches, huge shop vice......no kit or receiver though. I'll provide the shop and tools if someone else has the rivet jigs and teaches me....
