It seems everyone is building AR-15s these days, but wouldn’t it be fun to branch out and build your very own AK-47? This is a chance of a lifetime to learn about AK pattern rifles by getting your hands dirty and building one yourself!
No tools are required to take this class; everything needed to build YOUR AK Rifle will be provided! The only prerequisite for this class is a basic knowledge of firearms and firearm safety.
We will be building AK rifles in 7.62 caliber. These rifles will be assembled (by you) from de-milled AK-47 parts kits, new US-made receivers, new US-made barrels, and all required US parts for 922r compliance. The parts kits are mostly numbers-matching, except for the front trunnion. All journals are measured, as well as the parts to be pressed, to make sure the fit is correct. The headspace has been checked and set with a GO gauge, then with a NO-GO gauge. After setting the headspace, the barrel pin hole has been drilled and reamed for the new barrel pin. The pin will be pressed most of the way through so it can be removed during the build process to install rivets. The rear sight, gas block, and front sight will come pressed on and pinned to the brand new US-made barrel. A special fixture is used to make sure each piece fits correctly, and to ensure proper alignment on the barrel.
This is a standard AK-47 rifle build; only bolt-on accessories for customization can be fitted during the build, and any accessorizing requiring extra machining cannot be achieved during the limited time frame of this class.
This is not a leisurely-paced class, but each step in the process will be explained and supervised. By the end of day, you will have a fully assembled AK-47 rifle, built by YOU! You can complete the Federal 4473 and Virginia paperwork and leave with rifle in hand, or for non-residents, you may have your rifle shipped to an FFL of your choosing, for transfer to you (please research state and local laws in your location). We have all the necessary licenses to do this legally (FFL, Manufacturing, etc). These will be 100% legal by all Federal and Virginia state laws, 922r compliant, serialized firearms when finished.
The payment of $200 is to secure your spot in the class, the build parts must be billed/ran separately, and are due at the time of the class. Unfortunately we can not use our online credit card processor for the build parts on this transaction, and must run the parts to build the rifle/pistol manually through our offline credit card processor. Cash is also accepted when paying for the build parts.
