Did this video help you?

John Smith: 18:00 so dangerous lol´╗┐

James Knowles: nice work man, but why not buy the flats with the top rails already bent? just need to fold and drill trunion holes

ginsboy2003: It is probably covered with the old receiver section right now. Drill that off and remove the pin by driving it up from the bottom. They seem to be flared more on the top end.

ginsboy2003: When I made this few companies were selling jigs. There is a yahoo group called The_AK47_File_Bunker where I uploaded the plans I found for the jig to make sure all of mankind could find them. They are still available there.

eltenda fabrizio: thanks 4 sharing

ginsboy2003: Its homemade. I did just found out that AK-builder changed their Jig and flat design, so I am going to make a video on working around not having alignment pins.

MrGoodie916: Where did you buy your jig

dam00k: Awesome and just in time! I'm just starting my AMD65 build, I'm going to get the rivets and barrel pressed at an AK build party on the 30th so I need to get busy on this. How do you remove the pin that holds the stock on? Great videos, very informative. Thanks!

Travitanium: Yes, awesome!

mars1952: I watched all three parts. Nice job!

Munky332: i'm building one off of one now. IMO its kind of a PITA. you have to drill the holes, which can get tricky. flat + jig is a better option IMO. the best way to do the prebent non-drilled is to get a template (like the ACE ARMS) and use a glue stick to glue the pattern on (lining up the mag well) then punch and drill. i'm doing a full TIG welded build, so no rivets for me, other than the center support, which i might weld in too.

SPIN1963: Great work!

lugerstonecock: another great video. Thanks for sharing.

Ray Caniglia: Thank you Ginsboy, I bought the HF 110V Spot welder and machined my own tongs, and tips. works great! Thanks for all your great video's! Ray C.

ginsboy2003: Its possible, that if you check the alignment of the top of the rail to the trunnion that a 1/4 inch bit may be better. When I Iost my "D" drill bit I wrapped a piece of tape around a 1/4 inch bit to get me the right spacing for proper rail to trunnion alignment.

dam00k: Sheer genius, thanks!

gthree0239: I like the rosette weld. They are hard to perfect but very strong. Well, strong if you do them right.

keith misenheimer: hi i was wondering whats your take on the polish 80% receivers that ak builder offers i was leaning towards one of them vrs a flat

eddivision15: Very good detailed instructions. Thanks for your work.

ginsboy2003: I could weld them with a gas (Oxy/acetylene) setup if I had one, but all I have is a mig. I do wish I had bought a spot welder to make this process way faster.

dam00k: That did it, thanks. It'll be a lot easier to work on with the stock off. Another question, how critical is it to use a "D" to line up the rails over a 1/4"? It's only .004 difference (larger) and looks pretty spot on when I line it up with the trunnion. Would that make the action more clunky? Would the lower rail wear in if it's higher to the trunnion? (ok, two questions, I lied). Thanks again!

shaun hoblitzell: Great video. I lol'd when he took a drink at 2x speed

appleh8terguy: that drill reminds me of the dentist... in a bad way

austin3538: great job thanks for taking time to video

Ray Caniglia: Nice bending jig! I bought mine from Ak-Builder, and it was not cheap... Nice AMD 65Build!

Ryan Nace: Do you need a 20T press or would a smaller press do just fine?

ginsboy2003: You can use a smaller one, but I'd recommend a 20 to press the barrel in unless your using a tothtool barrel installation tool.

valhallawelcomesme: I got the ak builder rivets, glad I did, didnt know about the tapco rivets being that way.

Munky332: there's plenty of jigs out there. i got my jig off a forum (very high quality jig), its a bit lighter duty probably than the AK builder's but it was also about half the price -- but it works!! if your itnerested i have a link of an in-use vid, as well as the forum link for buy.

Munky332: 12T works fine. used a friends for my first bend/barrel press. i now have my own 20T, but thats only because harbor freight didnt have any more of the 12 tons. so i got the 20 ton at the price of the 12...
