That is a demilled kit. It does not include all of the parts you will need. Consider the additional cost of the receiver, barrel, and back plate. But you could put one together. If it gets overwhelming, take it to a gunsmith.

So then I could probably build a nice reliable AK for around $400? I know people always say that u get what u pay for but $400 aint ****. Compared to 800+ used in the pawn shops.

If I were you I'd wait till the ****storm dies down and wait till all the asshats who paid 1000 for an ak realize they fuc&ed up and sell them for normal (maybe even lower) prices.

For the record, I quit drinking and I am not Russian.

Carry on.

I doubt those idiots will sell. On the other hand, AKs are plentiful the world 'round. When the ****storm dies down the parts will no doubt be cheaper. I find it to be much more satisfying to build something up from pieces than to buy it already built.

While AKs are relatively simple, they are not something that an inexperienced person should attempt. They require many tools in order to do properly.

One being a press, while you could buy the tools, it would be MUCH cheaper to buy one outright and make it yours by customizing

Now, if you intend on building a half dozen AKs, then it may be worth the investment, for just one? I wouldn't. And this is coming from a guy that had the same idea as you at one point.

By the way, welcome to the forum.

You will have a hard time finding a complete de milled rifle. Import of foreign military barrels was stopped so you would need all the inner pars, the front and rear trunions, furniture, etc. then a receiver. Tools you will need would include a hydraulic press, rivet tools, headspace gauges, drill press, and other basic tools. Then finishing can require some other tools, chemicals, or coatings. If budget about $800-1000 for an initial build, depending on what tools you already have. It gets a but cheaper per rifle if you already have all the tools, and finishing equipment and supplies, but for one rifle it can be expensive.
