    The only AK I regret parting with is a 5.45 just because they can be accurate and fun. That said, milled AKs are heavy for no reason and some Arsensls have to have the brakes professionally torched to remove. Plus a lot have canted front sights. Not even a good wall hanger.

    Totally DX it.

    Bolt should be the same.

    Mag well opening doesn't matter a whole lot as long as the mag locks in. If there is any left to right movement due to Dremel it should have no effect. But you can tell when someone went at it with a hand tool. The opening is all cockeyed looking.

    Regardless, you may have some wobble anyway. Even if minor. Depending on the mag you're using and how worn/new it is

    Here's a link with a great deal of information regarding the history of Bulgarian milled AK's.
    https://www.theakforum.net/forums/pr...=136387&page=1

    The SLR-101 is a what could be imported at the time version of the AKK.


    If you're in to firearms history and don't feed inadequate because one of your guns isn't the latest and greatest, it would be worth converting the SLR-101 to an AKK clone. Plus, they are fun to shoot and the barrel is very high quality. I'd be all over this if I didn't already have an AKK clone.

    Say what you want about AK's, but I have my doubts that this guy could keep an M4 running.

    That looks pretty cool.

    I spoke to rifle dynamics today. I am going to send it off to them and have a pretty cool modernized AK.

    I didnít realize how uncommon the milled receivers are. Very few stock sets fit them.

    There's a reason for that.

    Who told you that?

    They were a stop gap in the early 50s for the russians because they couldn't figure out the stamping process.

    That's because people equate "milled" with best

    That doesn't mean they have a clue what they are talking about.

    Yep. There are stocks that are designed to fit milled receivers and stocks that are designed to fit stamped receivers. Interestingly, the Yugo (Serbian now) stamped receiver rifles have rear trunnions that were designed to accept the same buttstocks that the milled receivers accept.

    The Bulgarians used the milled receivers for 7.62x39 because they were not licensed by the Russians to manufacture AKM receivers. Here are their offerings. Note there are no stamped receiver AK's offered.
