    Not really. At one time there was 5 or 6 of building, a few build party's. Today with kits $400, barrel $120 and recievers $120. Not really worth it.

    It's not like building an AR. Almost every part has to be fitted. Unless you know someone with the tools not worth spending $500 to $600 on tools. Most of the time one cannot be completed in 1 day.

    My coworker has some tools I could borrow since he's pretty invested into AK47's and AK74's with his collection. I've always wanted a fun unconventional build. Was just always back and forth between a 300 BLK or AK-47 pistol build, but after shooting his AK, I'm hooked with the AK bug! Sucks that I waited out too long now it seems and missed the window of opportunity for getting the most bang for my buck for building. Been eyeing the Meridian Defense or Rifle Dynamics pistols, but man the wait times are slightly brutal. The cost as well, but I guess I gotta pay to play if I really want it. :dunno:

    I have often wondered why it cost so much to build and AK. They are cheaper to buy premade. The exact opposite is true with AR15s. Can build and AR for under $400 with ease. AK47 you are lucky to come in under $1000.
