The MAGA (Make America Great Again) AK Build Saga Begins
« on: September 29, 2018, 05:31:13 AM »
I dropped all my parts off to Troy Sellars today.  It was the first time I'd ever met him but he was super nice.

Following parts

Windham weaponry 16" black nitride barrel us made 4150-because maga
AMT Us made forged front trunnion-because maga
Childers cg3 us made receiver-because maga
Meridian defense bd2 ak brake us made-because maga
Meridian defense m4 forged rear trunnion us made-because maga
Krebs custom rear peep
Polenar Tactical fiber optic front sight-Made and shipped from Slovenia
RS Regulate ak301m
RS regulate AKML
Holosun 503gu-fde
Virgin cugir MD63 parts kit
CNC warrior gas piston-because maga
Red star arms adjustable trigger us made-because maga
ALG hammer spring-because maga
ALG recoil spring-because maga
Forged surplus bolt and carrier
Magpul ak+ grip-because maga
Magpul ctr stock with limbsaver buttpad-because maga
Magpul handguard-because maga
Spikes tactical buffer tube-because maga
BCM qd end plate-because maga
DPMS castle nut
SOE gear coyote single point sling-because maga
Master mount ak safety

In case anyone is curious if I use magpul gen m3 ak mags or any other us made ak mags the us parts count is 15. If i use my circle ten mags or any other foreign mags with us follower and floor plates the parts count is 13.


Troy said it'd be 6-8 weeks on the build. Although he did state that he was building more akm's in 3-4 weeks and would go ahead and do mine at that time so it may be less than 6-8 weeks.


I will post pics once it comes in.

The only reason I went with the forged romanian bolt and bolt carrier is because the only other us made forged bolt and forged bolt carriers are from PSA and they are junk.


I bought this part kit and sold off the parts I didn't want to use and made some of my money back on it.

The US parts count doesn't matter a whit since it is not being imported.

When Obama was elected the US took a decidedly turn down.

Hopefully within a couple years there will be a KAG version to continue the trend. thumb1
