    I can rememeber when I was younger and we were allowed to make 1 reciever per year and be legal. Had someone telling me that you can now make 3 a year. Well I would like to just build 1 as a matter of pride but I want to find what the real laws are and not what somebody told me. Does anyone know what laws govern this or anything to help me find it. Thanks

    Interesting topic!

    I am seriously considering building an AK from "scratch" just for the experience of it. I have "built" three AR's now and its kind of "ho-hum" for me now as the AR platform is very efficiently "modular"... outside of machining the upper and lower from raw forgings that is. Not going to invest the money in the C&C machine and programming for that!

    Buying the jigs and bending the flats for AK receivers... that is realistically doable for a "hobby builder".

    Doesn't appear to be any mention on a limit of how many builds a guy can do. Good news. Now if I only had the money to do a bunch of builds I'd be a happy camper.

    There is no limit. Just has to be for personal use.

    Yup.
    You can build as many as you want.
