im in the drafting phase for a 2 piece rectangular shroud that covers the entire barrel and gas tube of my AK. i hope to provide a stable system since it fits into the receiver to mount optics instead of hoping my gas block is perfectly assembled straight. Plus my front site post is cockeyed so my iron sights are frickin useless. this will count as an american made part on it right?

if you made it in america yeah. i would stamp it in an obscure spot made in the usa if your worried about it.

if your talking about that compliance list BS. it wont count. there is a specific list of parts that count.

Iv had pretty good luck with that so far so it should work out awesomely.

jared, this scout rifle idea sounds interesting. something along the lines of the 454 Casull in a carbine type rifle maybe? please tell us more about this one.

Think bolt action rifle in the rossi handi rifle size. Or the same size as a mossberg plinkster. Im thinkin it will be a take down rifle that can be used for a heavy caliber survival rifle. Its jist an idea right now. I have two kits on order....just dont know what calibers.

They are built off from remington 700 short action and they are from dakota arms. Im not positive but i think they are a very select group can order type of thing. I know they told me the only reason i was able to get em is because of who my mentor/partner is. All the are is the barrel, adjustable trigger, and synthetic stock. The stocks i dont think im gonna use though. I think im gonna have em made custom by boyds. Just not sure until i have em in my hands.
