Summary of Material:
The best and easiest method for building a Semi-Auto AK from a parts kit. You can build an AK from a kit with ease
and guaranteed success. This is a foolproof method for building up a Semi-Auto AK from a receiver or from a flat.
Several gunsmiths and engineers from AGI poured over this process and tried various methods for forming and assembling
receivers before we realized that in order to eliminate confusion and lower risk of failure, we needed to come up with one
standardized procedure that would work for the experienced perfectionist as well as for the first-time, novice builder. After
months of experimentation we had the answer.The Step-by-Step Solution. If you follow the procedures we show you and
use the tooling we give you prints for, you simply can't miss. Prints are included for all the tooling you need whether you are
starting from a flat or with a pre-formed receiver. John starts out this course by reviewing the many options available for
receivers and flats, then he shows you the U.S. parts available and reviews surplus parts as well as how to inspect them to
make sure you have what you need to complete your project. He covers the differences between matched parts sets and
mixed parts sets and shows which combinations are best and why.
The infamous "Ten Imported Parts Rule" is carefully explained and re-explained throughout the building process so that
you will be able to build a legal rifle. Along the way, we discuss the many options you have for using different construction
methods and we show you the techniques that will deliver the best results.
We also discuss the construction and use of tooling that AGI designed. By building the AGI tooling you simplify the
building process and increase your chances of success. Every step in the process is covered in detail and when we are
done building our AK we take you through the proper safety checks and off to the range to test fire. You'll be impressed at
how well the gun operates.
So whether you are a builder who wants to start with a flat and enjoy the entire process of building or you want to build
an AK using a pre-formed receiver, this course covers it all. We recommend you watch the entire course before you even
order your parts kit, so you can decide which methods and parts you want to use in building your own Semi-Auto AK.
