  2. Opening an unknown ammo spam can (AKA "Christmas Morning in the garage")

    I found an unopened spam can of ammo in a relative's storage area. I tried to decipher the faded markings and the best I could come up with was it was Bulgarian..unknown caliber but 7,62 something. I wanted to keep it sealed for a potential buyer but how could I sell it if I don't know what it...

  4. Has anyone here ever built a Sten?

    I was at the Knob Creek MG Shoot in 2000; it was Sunday (last day) and the vendors were packing up to leave. I went a by a guy's table that had been selling STEN parts kits and mags. I told him I needed spare parts and some mags for my Mark 11. He pointed to a box of parts and said "I'll make...

    "Sounds like most places that have been having this issue it’s ammo or mag. Steel case fmj. " "So I think it is the mag and you might want to experiment. " Ding Ding Ding, Winner! I was using a Century converted 5.45 to 5.56 mag...when I switched to a Russian Izhmash plum AK74 mag the gun fed...
  6. AK-74 SBR fix

    I successfully test fired it yesterday; 3 30 round mags with no issues. I checked the brass and everything appeared to be OK. Fun little AKS-74U!
  7. What to build next?**Imbel FAL**

    For inspiration; I built 2 STG-58's on Imbel receivers. After assembly I took the wood-stocked rifle to the 200 yard range. The sights were untouched from when the rifle was de-milled. I hit the steel first shot. I was impressed.

  9. MAADI ARM in 5.45 feeding issue

    I have an Egyptian Maadi SBR that was converted to 5.45 but not finished due to function issues. In a previous post I noted the trigger and hammer appeared to be incorrect and would not allow the bolt to cycle correctly; fortunately that was the issue and a new FCG fixed it and the weapon cycles...
  10. AK-74 SBR fix

    My new Century AK trigger came in yesterday; solved the problem. Now I need a headspace gauge for 5.45x39; I'm concerned that if the builder screwed up the trigger I don't think I can trust that it has been headspaced properly. I want to check it prior to test firing. Anyone want to rent me a...
  11. AK-74 SBR fix

    That was my thought process; figured some of the builders here might have run into a similar mix-up. Your pictures sure seem to bear that out.
  12. AK-74 SBR fix

    I bought an Egyption MAADI ARM project in 5.45. The seller said he couldn't get it to hand cycle correctly. I picked it up yesterday. While I own a couple of AK's I have never built one and do not have much experience with them. When hand cycling I quickly saw that the hammer is sitting way too...
