    Any build sites that specialize in building suomis from kits?
    I want something I cant easily find anywhere and dont wanna spend alot of money
    Im primarily interested in looking for a 100% receiver as well as general info

    If no 100% receivers exist then Id also need info on what kind of work be it machining or simple drilling is exactly involved in finishing an 80%

    Also would have to buy a fcg as well

    I have spent many hours on weaponeer looking for an easy build, i.e. something that does not need a drill press/lathe/swiss watchmaker tools.

    I'm still looking :o

    thats umpossible. Youll atleast need a drill press for the receiver as I cant find 100% ones. Then you can either turn down the bolt yourself or pay someone else. Then theres the tiny pin you need to nock the firing pin out.

    So either have alot of tools or alot of money
    Luckily my uncle is a machinist and can maybe help me on a few of the things
