It does not affect the function-- true. But if you want an authentic Type 3 or milled AK -47, it should be mailed out for the cover plate. I am having Matt Yeamans (Turbothis) mill out the cover plate area on my two Tortort 80% receivers, but then he is finishing them to 100% receivers for me. Apparently, no one will do the milling out of the cover plate area unless it is already a 100% receiver or unless they have a manufacturer's FFL and you are having them finish your receiver.

The usual. Files, oilstones (we call those files as well), and scrapers.

I use files for just about everything.
I've been meaning to try out the Deburring hand scrapers, do they work well with hardened steel?

Yes, just purchase a good one made by Nicholson or Simonds, or any Swiss-made such as Grobet. It I think a small Grobet unit is my go-to three-square scraper all around the shop. They're not expensive.

I have a small carbide scraper mad from a worn boring tool that I use on the really hard stuff and follow it with a stone (file).

Hey Tortort, any pics of that protype you did with an AMD65 handguard you had mentioned fitting? Also, anybody that has a milled tortort build finished should show it off in this thread- http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=319956

Ben is making the "Penguin" latch as we speak.
-
The axis hole in the penguin latch and solid front receiver is not in same location as the original latch, it is 5.6 mm to the rear.

Tim, to run the stock 4.5 setup the front pocket features would need to be milled out like a regular milled AK. Cover plate would get the regular krink pin installed
We figure most builders will want to do this.

The threaded hole and small 4 mm holes are there in case bthe builders want to use our aftermarket latch (penguin) which is on a machine now.

Since this is more of a Khyber pass build for me, I will use the 1 off latch system. Now that I have an explanation, this seems pretty simple.
