    Who does the best/cheapest AK builds in the Portland area? I have a Yugo RPK kit that needs to be assembled. I don't really want to pay more than few hundred bucks. I don't need it finished either, as the bare reciever matches the rest of the kit for a good "battlefield pickup" look. I called a builder in Tigard and one in Hillsboro, and they both quoted me $400. Ouch...

    How do you equate best with cheapest?

    I didn't say I equated best with cheapest. I wanted to know who does the best work at the best price.

    Depending on how much time you have, what model of Yugo you have and when my flat bending jig gets returned (lent it out) you are more then welcome to buy a receiver flat come over and bend it here then finish on your own.

    Good quality reciver flats can be found at the link below + many other good parts and tools.

    Best of all you will have fabricated it on your own, they are really simple.

    Contract_Pilot is right.

    you should do it yourself.

    We need a NWFA Build Party.

    I built one Tantal last week and I'm doing another this week.

    Cocktailer, If you get a build party going I would be interested. Don't own a AK at this time but will eventually.

    We need someone that can host the party.

    Will need a large Garage or shop.
    I'll start a new thread.

    The party is a great idea - but if it is not your cup of tea call or e-mail http://www.762llc.com/ in Albany. The owner does EXCELLENT AK work. But there might be a bit of a wait.
