Romy "G" kit from Copes, $112.94 shipped

Nodak Spud Receiver $83 shipped + $25 transfer/call-in

screwkit complete screw build kit with tips bits and keys, $22.94

at $243 right now, need some lock-tite, a threaded rod, some nuts and washers, and a pulley puller.

coulda went with the flawed receiver and saved $43 but i wanted the perfect receiver.

i get to put it together myself and its much cheaper than buying an angry beavers model.

I've used several of the cheaper NDS '39 receivers and have not had a problem with any of them. I think the premiums just have the step on the rails whereas the economy's don't. Be warned, the cheap AK builds can be addicting. :D

Sounds like you are planning on pulling the barrel.......you do not need to pull the barrel to do a screw build. Drill out the old rivets and tap the holes and slap that sucker together!:devil:

rivets are better than screws
you can make a rivet crusher out of a pair of cheap bolt cutters on a grinding wheel.

next month ill rivet one.

and next month who knows.
