    The Libs just discovered group builds. I'm going to quote the article in it's entirety, to prevent them from getting the click. I will link to it, however, as well as a video. All apologies if I missed that it was already posted.

    Ironically, this only serves to make me want to participate in a group build.

    ^LOL, that was what I was thinking! Maybe NWFA can organize via "The Den". I'd love to learn how to build an AK, and hang out with some fellow gun owners.

    This story also reminds me of the guy who built an AK from a shovel...

    The idea of building / creating something is celebrated in human culture, no matter what era, so I find it funny that the author of this article tries to paint "build parties" as some sort of sneaky and dirty thing just because the group members are constructing AKs. Build parties for guns seem to me to be just part of the modern DIY movement... but I guess for anti-gun folks, anything involving firearms is just plain EVIL.

    Just need a bend press and drill plate listing the locations for the holes. They are not hard to do. I looked into it once for fun but never did build my own. Anyone have a decent metal working shop out back?

    Its not illegal for anyone to make a gun of any type (as long as its not full auto, or considered a destructive device. or other NFA type without proper paper work), Never has been. It only needs a serial number if its transferred. Now doing this in CA I have no clue.

    I went to several build parties when I was in CA, built 5-6 AKs when down there, always a good time, everyone brought whatevery tools they had, had several different stations set up ( demil , drilling, welding, riviting, pressing, blasting, parking)....Building in CA was no different that anywhere else, just had to follow a slightly different set of rules, ie: pistol grip / 10rd mag, etc.

    The article is a little misleading it that your homebuild doesn't need a serial number, it does when your sell it or transfer it via an FFL (in CA)

    Don't liberals have any thing better to do? Like making the world a better place by tackling real problems?
    I'm just sure a father and son build team are going to use their build to go out on a mass shooting spree.

    The problem is that they think they are making the world a better place by being anti 2nd.

    So can we have a group build, or what? I am a newbie when it comes to building firearms, but I love shooting them, and want an AK.

    Let's do it.

    Ya'll missed the AK train. Kits are over twice as expensive at they were a few years ago. Original barreled kits are near extinct. I tried to host build parties twice....few if any were actually interested.

    same here especially since an AK is very reliable. even if i were to never take it to the range and leave it in a closet, i know it would always be reliable. well at least by design.

    yep. you guys are definitely way late to the building game, unfortunately. around the time the AWB expired, you could get a basically unused Romy-G kit for $50, barrel and all. build parties were really parties then, when some guys were building 4-5 rifles in one go. few made complete receivers at the time, but flats were already available from Tapco and others.

    kits really went up in the last year or so. I bought a couple AK-74 kits in mid 2011 for about $100/ea. now they're almost $300 or more. same old story with all other gun stuff.
