To start with , here are two examples I would like to buy and build . http://www.copesdistributing.net/argentinean-p-39.html I would really like this one http://www.copesdistributing.net/polish-parts-p-2291.html Now Im a slick rick on the welder , holes drilled in the bore i could deal with , maybe even welding a receiver back up . Are most of these f/a guns ? Why were they hacked ? Are the firing groups hacked too ? like the bolts , sears ect ? How available are parts ? Say i just wanted to look complete and un-harmed for a shop display ? Could they be safely repaired to fire low pressure or blanks ? I see alot of f/a AK kits with cut barrels , whats to keep people from buying them and just making their own prison sentence ? Dont get me wrong , id love to buy one of the said ak kits but fear it may be from some bored atf guy at home lol . Aside from a legal stand point .... can these guns be built from the links above ? Or are they truly good for parts only ? Some are intact minus the barrel , could you just buy a used barrel or is that what would make them non compliant . Say its a MG that has been cut n frilled to hell . If its pre ban MFG and you had the time and money , could you legally / physically bring it back to life ? Sorry for the 21 questions but I have always wondered this . I have kids wife and a business now so no chancing that over a stupid gun but said guns would be nice to have when Z.E.R.T is not around to help you in the Apocalypse LMAO , you know , in pieces but could be readied . Not trolling , fishing or no ill / illegal intent here , just looking for honest answers to honest questions .
