    get the G2 trigger parts with the reciever, and rivets, other then that all you'll need is a few more us parts to make it compliant.

    I need 3 total US parts to make it compliant right?

    - the receiver (Click Here)
    - The trigger (here)

    and do new grips or stock sets count?

    You need 2 more parts, us made pistol grip will work, and us gas piston works. I think both upper and lower handguards would count as 1 additional part too, p grip and piston are easy ones to do though.

    Im planning on replacing the muzzle brake, trigger group, and gas piston for mine. Trying to keep it original as possible. Although I may make an evil black AK after that :noes:

    Yeah floorplates and followers can be used too, but if you have alot of mag's thats more of a pain to make sure your keeping them in compliance.

    You need:

    A complete kit
    Receiver (be it premade or a flat)
    rivets
    and your us parts
    tools to assemble

    You need 5 US parts if you have no muzzle attachment, 6 if you do.
    US parts I recommend are

    Receiver
    Trigger
    Hammer
    Disconnector
    Gas piston
    Pistol Grip (i have a nice wooden made US one)
    Muzzle brake

    Yes thats 7, but gives you options. You should have at least the top 4 no matter what.

    Anyone got some good links to parts kits? They dont have to be underfolders. Thats just what I found the most of.

    Also on that one I posted its says:

    "Not a working firearm and cannot be made into one"

    Why would it not be able to made into a working firearm?
