View Full Version : correct reciever flat for m63?
06-17-2012, 12:05 PM
first build being worked on, wondering if this might be the correct flat that i would need for the M63 kit i just got from APEX
if not, any better suggestions?

Do you mean an M64? If that is what you have it has a milled receiver and the flat will not work.

Think he means M63 as stated
Yes, that flat will work. Personally I would get one of AKBuilders standard, undrilled trunnion hole Romanian 7.62 flats, but then again, I'm partial to his flats. Not sure what the source of the ones you linked is.

well, i really would like to have something pre drilled, but if there is a benefit to having a non drilled, lmk why. Im still learning

I don't know what I was thinking and Fireman 72 is right get the AK builder flat without the holes.

There are wide variances in trunnion rivet holes, and the pre-drilled flats dont accommodate that without egging out holes to get them to match. While that certainly can be done (and many have been done that way), it's not optimal, in my opinion. The choice is yours, though, and you will be fine either way, I'm sure.

thats good to know, either way its a crap shoot though, if u are off drilling just a bit then it would have to be egged out anyway. on this first build i dont want to spend a crap ton on tools and find i dont enjoy it... if i like it ill drop the cash on tools. ill keep doing research before i buy. maybe someone else out there has other opinions?

You could go with the Polish pre-bent flat. It's already bent and will work with
the Romanian. Curtis has them with rails for a decent price.
He's got some inexpensive tooling to make drilling easier also.
Receiver blank drilling jig. (currently out of stock)

thanks, glad to know polish works too. id rather buy a drilling jig than a bending jig so thats a plus i guess
