Yeah. Like buying one of the kits and putting it together.

Reviving a demilled kit is extremely difficult. It will require welding.
Building a rifle from parts is much less difficult.

From what I understand I can get the pre milled? Or am I mistaking?

I'm guessing it wouldn't be hard to do. An AK is pretty simple.

That was my thought. I just wanted to know if anyone had any experience and advice on the matter. I own 2 sks and I love them. But id like to have an AK for close quarters. My sks are totally nice but its hard to pie corners. but I dont feel like paying now aday prices for the ak. And is like to get expierience building as well.

Oh. A receiver blank. Go for it. You can do it.
If you don't have any experience now, you will when you finish.
