GUN BUILD: The Scrap Metal “AK-47″

ak63d scrap metal ak 47px
This project was built from a destroyed Hungarian AK-63D full auto parts kit. Per BATF rules the gun had to be destroyed before importation into the US.  The receiver and barrel were both torch cut and incomplete.  While it is certainly no “shovel build” I did manage to construct my own receiver and trigger group from scrap metal on hand.  Follow along!
