I took a couple of pics of the the magwell and breach.




I wish the pictures were better but this is my first time with a digital camera.

Yes , this is the gas operated one. I will post more pics today. I am waiting to get a new mag spring so I can show how it locks up and feeds. There is still a bit of tweeking in the feed ramp area but it doesn't like to take hollow points.
GETIT- is totally right you learn a whooooole lot on one of these builds. The mag adapter is great...I am also working on one to take 30 carbine mags for heavy weight 7.62x25 rounds. And I am working on a super scary bizon like rotory mag to hold alot of bullets... but lets not get ahead of of the cart.
I am making a folding stock for it but will probably make a fixed one outa wood just so I can go shoot it and work out the bugs. When it comes to the fore end this is more where the "franken" part comes in.....I plan to make a bizon like steel upper and a lower that will.....welll...look like something you have seen before but not on an ak so stay tuned.
Reynaldo.c - the barrel is a heavily , heavilly modified mauser barrel ( new) for a 30-30.
I will post more pictures today.

Riveted and Rotational. I can appreciate your efforts! Obviously, it didn't just happen by itself.

Very VERY Nice. Impressive. Awaiting your range report. VERY NICE.

ok here is a few more photos. Thanks for the compliments, but I couldn't have done this project with out alot of advice and help from fellow members. I got to say this build would be going alot faster and easier if i welded or had a buddy that does.

I sure haven't. There isn't a range close by that I can test fire it in its current form , so that means the mountians and that makes it a bit of a chore. I want to have a few more things running smoother so I can have fun and not frustration. I am having 2 isuues but I am slowly working that out. With yourCntrailers drum pistol .. it loads up int the firearm as a single feed. That seems to be advantagious. I am having issues of consistantly feeding in the barrel at not too steep an angle. I also discovered that the 74 bolt carrier was jamming the following round into the front of the mag while loading a round into the barrel. This could be a major problem as it is not locking up right and forcing the bullet further into the case. I have just about solved these problems with heavy work on the bottom of the bolt carrier, bolt and completely reworking the feed ramp and parts of the trunnion. I am having spring problems. My carrier is heavily shortend and to design a guide rod that fits, collapses, and allows full enough movment of the bolt carrier is very perplexing. So there it is.. once I get those solved 100% I will take it out .

If I can't get the spring to work like I want . I may go radical and go with a dual spring set up on both sides of the carrier with fixed guide rods.

PanaceaBB- now your the man!! I can't even go over all the amazing projects you are working on. I couldn't have done this with out your barrel. Did you have the same problems with the bullet feeding? I read your thread and you mentioned you were using half a trigger spring or somethink like that can you explain? Here or your thread if you can.
