just wanted to say hi to everybody and I am new to this forum and am interested in the SKS and the AK but have many varied gun interests. I am looking for info on building an AK from a parts kit and a lot of specs on a build if anybody out there has any experience . New York has just passed some new "gunlaws" that under mind our constitution and were passed in the dark of night with no opportunity for a discussion. they are very similar to what California passed a while ago and it seems that some of the fixes that were created to help us "comply" with the California laws will work here in NY. (bullet button and monster grip to mention a few. If you have any more ideas that fall into that category I would love to hear about.
