‘AK-47’ scrap metal build PART 2: Receiver from scratch


Published on Oct 3, 2014 by The Ammo Channel

PART 2 – In this segment I build the receiver out of thick plate steel by cutting and welding it to shape, drilling holes, then spot heat treating it. The rails were formed by beating with a hammer to fold them over.

The steel is 0.064″ 4130 Annealed (about 1.6mm thick)

    The AK is probably the most rugged & reliable rifle ever designed.

    However, an AR can be designed to be even deadlier, and it uses two of the the most available rounds to be found – and one is NATO. Definitely your best bet as far as the mobile re-supply units are concerned.

    You said it correct the first time..”The AK is probably the most rugged & reliable rifle ever designed”. And these days the AK47 can do anything the AR can do, but better. But in a domestic civil war, AR rounds will be everywhere to be found and not so with AK ammo. So you are also correct about that.
