    like the title says, im in south dakota and have a couple aks but never built one myself. was wondering if anyone on here is from SD, northern NE, western ia, or MN or ND and has the know how and would want to help a guy build two some day/teach me. Ive built ars, worked on diff guns and stuff so not useless. lol could pay to help show me how! or if anyone just wants to shoot in east river south dakota let me know!

    I can put you in contact with an LGS / AK manufacturer here in Cedar Rapids IA if you wish. That's the best I can do.

    i messaged them, so we'll see how much they want to assemble a kit. can they build one for someone on a completed 80% lower without a serial number? or is that manufacturing to where it would have to be registered?

    Dave is closed on Mondays

    He will pick up the phone if you call during business hours Tues-Sat

    Much of his business is building custom AKs ( his own brand ) for his customers.

    I've looked at parts kits but never really dove in to what it would take to put one together.... I do need a AK, my son thinks they're cool

    I know you need a press for the rivets and stuff if you want them clean. But mostly just have no idea how to do it. Hell yeah theyre cool though haha

    lots of them but most are like 45 mins long there's so much stuff to show. Feel like ill screw up some part. Just hate to experiment on a 400$ kit and screw it up.

    Btw @IowaShooter Dave replied today, said it is like 400$+ for labor to build one. So probably not going to do that. Could buy all the tools needed and a couple lowers for the price of one assembly. His rifles look really nice though! May have to buy a completed one. Thanks anyways!
