Well I am brand new and just bought a Romanian AK 47 kit but have not received it yet. I have done a ton of research and mentally I have already built the AK after watching so much info. Small problem I need a shop press and a drill press . I don't mind buying these items because this is a Father Twin son project and if they lose interest well you know. About me. My boys are true History buffs and decided they wanted to collect WW11 weapons from each Country. Well we have 7 or 8 guns but they did not mention it was going to be all of my money oh well. I have my C & R license so at least I did not have to pay a FFL dealer for my purchases. So anyhow my Twins decided they wanted an AR !5 and I got a price and told them no. So I found the AK kit instead.
