    So I got ahead of myself and ordered a Bulgarian milled parts kit from Cope's (Linky). I figured I could get plans or a model for a milled reciever anywhere. Nope. I can't even find any for sale anywhere online. Does anyone have access to milled reciever sources? I have worked all my google-fu and cannot come up with anything other than Lancaster and there is a whole hate blog (clicky) on Lancaster and it makes me nervous about purchasing from them.

    Thanks

    Thanks, but I found those sites already. They are sold out with no eta on starting back up in production. It's too bad i can't find a good blueprint, because I would just mill my own.

    Depending on your skill set, you could also watch the sale sections on some of the AK boards like The AK Forum for a take off front/rear stub...get your self of set of side plates from Matt Yeaman and put a receiver together...

    I dont have the skills but Matt built my T3 and it turned out great....

    Now thinking out loud, I don't know how correct you want your rifle to be, nor do I know if the original rifle had a threaded or press/pin barrel......BUT since the kit you ordered is missing the barrel and trunion...you will have better luck finding a press/pin front take off trunion with a US barrel than finding a front stub from a milled kit which would need the barrel threaded if the journal was the correct size.

    Build it as a stamped rifle since you don't have a milled barrel.

    Generally milled AKs have a threaded barrel and are timed to the receiver, and the receiver/front/rear trunnion are all one piece. Since the OP bought a kit missing the barrel, front/rear trunnion, it will be easier to find a stamped front trunnion/rear trunnion and then install his parts from the kit on a new US barrel which will press into the stamped trunnion , then to find a take off threaded barrel and threaded front trunnion....depending on the OPs kit (as pictured a under folder) rear trunnions are floating around and a stamped receiver is easy to drill, a milled receiver as the OP is finding is hard to come by....only parts I really see not fitting from his milled kit is the lower handguard.

    Examples:
    Maadi trunnion
    US barrel
    underfolder trunnion
