    Im going to take the plunge and build my AK myself. I know about the gunsgutsandgod.com tutorial, but I have also heard that you dont need all the tools that he says you do. Does anybody here have a list of tools that you actually NEED to build it (that I can get from Home Depot or something). Also, how long does it generally take to build one the first time?

    they do, but for some reason, there forum software and/or mods suck, because all (or atleast, most) of the links dont work. Also, as a Cali member, it can be hard to get any serious replies there.

    I found that too, their stickied threads are all outdated and just link back to the AK forum. There are some good threads there but its a pain finding them.
    You might also try the SKS boards, I found this one: http://www.sksboards.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5843
    theres also this page: http://www.akfiles.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=4
    Gunco has a tutorial if you are building from a blank not a flat: http://www.gunco.net/forums/showthread.php?t=6806
    Someone sent me this one: http://pookieweb.dyndns.org:61129/AK/docs/construction/construction.htm

    Hopefully those will help some.

    I've been thinking of building one or two for a while now, sounds like an NDS or other complete receiver would be safer. Decided on a parts kit yet?

    The links don't work unless you're logged in FYI.

    I think I am going to do a romanian, since they seem to be the most common/least expensive. Any body know for sure if they come with threaded barrels? The only thing I dont like about them is the forward handgrip (OG AK look ftw), but thats just a matter of getting some new wood for it.

    They just take me to the parent forum of that. Hmm.

    All I know is that you gotta be logged in to click specific links and search and stuff like that. I dunno, I agree the website sucks, but being logged in alleviates most of my problems. Who knows?
