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
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
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...
