    Very nice AK12 setup. I would be interested in how AK12 handles. Looks like you're using all high quality parts.

    Ban on Russian imports is very unfortunate otherwise we would have seen a lot authentic AK12/15, possibly some PL14/15 as well. Oh well...

    Have you had a chance to shoot it? How do you like it?

    So itís considerably lighter than an Alpha and Itís also very soft shooting rifle. I wish I could get a true Russian but itís probably never going to happen.

    Bumping this 18+ month old thread.

    @TheChunkNorris how is the rifle working out for you? Still liking it and/or happy with CW's work? The other name I see regarding these is M13 Industries in Nevada but I have no experience with either.

    Cool gun! Looks like Kalashnikov out-Zenitco'ed Zenitco with this one.

    Edit. Speaking of Zenitco I see they are making a specific rail now for the AK12. Nice!

    ďThe rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

    Runs amazingly well. Carlos and Willie at CW are personal friends of mine so they get all my work. John at M13 is solid and will be doing a 9x39 AKM for me. CW does stellar work. Do you have a kit?

    Sort of. I've picked up most everything I'd need off gunbroker and a few other places. Still need a gas tube/dust cover front latch and a rear sight assembly. Maybe the lower selector stop as well. I plan on using a Krebs selector so maybe that won't matter.

    My plan has always been to use AKM bolt and trunnion parts and have an AK15 built. This will be slightly less expensive than sourcing AK103 bolt parts or finding a Saiga to gut. But now I kind of wonder about getting a new Kalashnikov USA rifle and having the AK12 parts added to it. This would give me the small stem bolt, bump rivet, etc.

    The KUSA route would be an expensive way to go to source bolt and trunnion parts. And it wouldn't really make the gun any more reliable, etc but it would add some authenticity. Would anyone outside of a hardcore collector care? In fact an AKM pattern may be more practical as a shooter since spare AK extractors and stuff are probably easier to find than AK-103 spares.

    Cool. You get AK100 spec bolt parts?

    Apparently the muzzle device and rear sight base are different on the 7.62x39 but again nobody outside the hardcore collector market will probably worry about it.
