Got an AK Parts Kit? This ebook shows you how to build it right!
The AK-47 and its variants are world-renowned for being simple, rugged and nearly indestructible. But if you wanted to build your own Kalashnikov rifle there was no good single source of construction information—until now.

This new series dives deep into proven techniques of home-built AKs. Profusely illustrated with numerous photos and diagrams, these manuals will show you exactly how to assemble your AK parts kit step-by-step. Your build will go easy using our techniques, recommended tools, and veteran builder tips/tricks...all with a critical focus on both safety & quality.

The highly anticipated Volume Two covers a full parts kit build, from receiver flat/shell or already complete receiver through assembly, final fitting, and tuning. Alternate tools and methods are discussed throughout, as well as steps for both the AKM, AK-74 models (and various other variants of each like Yugo models, and the Krinkov). With over 240 images that make the procedures both clear and easy to understand.
Topics include:
- Required build parts list
- Recommended tools
- Legal requirements
- Demilling of the parts kits
- Bending the receiver flat
- Fitting and riveting of front/rear trunnions
- Attaching and tuning the rails
- Mounting the trigger guard
- Headspacing
- Receiver heat treatment
- Installing the furniture
- Assembling the internals - and more...

If you have been waiting for the 'definitive AK assembly guide' before building your AK, wait no more.
Volume II continues the journey, showing every step to complete your matching or newly populated AK parts kit into a complete functional and safe rifle.
