Default Khyber pass build

I want to have one built, I lack the resources, time, and skills to build one myself.
What is the dream kit, and who would build it if I want a top shelf, last-two-lifetimes build?
Gracias,
DD

The dream kit is whatever you want. I would do an M72 on a Childers side folder frame, then use a 16 AK-builder barrel. And the icing on the cake would be a polytech spiker front sight block. Have it built by Meridian Ordnance, Turbothis, Arizona Response Systems, etc etc.

A Khyber build can really be mishmash of parts you want.

IMO- JBI should be in the top 5
- & if I lived nearby Denton TX that would be my top choice, but mailing it from anywhere isn't really an issue.

Your Khyber dream kit:

RPK barrel and RPK kit
Bulgarian Side folding triangle stock, trunnion, and hardware.
Yugo fixed stock Underfolder flat/reciever undrilled

Narrow the Side folding trunnion .25 mm on each side.
weld up sling slot on flat/receiver.
cut rpk barrel to 16 inches and re profile the front sight block area.
Make side folder cuts on flat/receiver.
Round off humps on rpk hand guard with sandpaper
Build parts kit onto flat/receiver.



JBI or member BR7.62 should be able to do the work

Everyone has a different opinion on a Khyber build. Different variations and that's kind of what makes it exciting. Mine would be a

Polish new WBP kit with forged front trunnion
Russian or US made rear 4.5 trunnion with Russian Triangle folder stock
Polish Radom hammer-forged chrome-lined Barrel
Russian wood 24MM pistol grip
Russian wood Handguards
AK Builder slant muzzle brake or Definitive arms muzzle brake
Tapco G2 trigger group after hand polishing and re contouring Hammer profile.
Morrissey Ak receiver with Russian selector markings and acrylics.
Finish would be black DuraCoat over Parkerization

Builders would be
Two Rivers Arms or AWS Advanced Weapons Systems

How I would do it-

Tortort milled sidefolder receiver
Beat up triangle stock
Whatever handguards and pistol grip you can find
Polish WBP barrel components
Polish, Hungarian, or Yugo bolt/carrier (I would go polish or Yugo, and only in-the-white)

Engrave some funky selector markings of your choice

I used a mix of Polish AKM, AMD 65 and Bulgarian AKS-74 to build mine.

It's sweet.

Check out AKBlue's Khyber builds. His talent in building them is as good as those in the Khyber region.

I'd like to have one like this:
