Ok guys, I'm considering building a NY legal AK. I've always wanted an AK, and with Saigas going up in price, I figured "why not build a NY legal AR, with detachable magazines, instead of getting a SKS". So parts kits are pretty cheap, you can toss on a Monsterman grip, remove the threads, and the bayonet lug, and boom, a legal rifle. I can build AR-15 uppers and lowers, and got bored with it, and looked to AKs. I'm thinking of using a Hungarian AKM parts kit, with a Nodak Spud AKM receiver, a Tapco G2 trigger group, US made magazines, a screw set with red locktite instead of rivets, and a US made gas piston, which I believe should bring me up to the required number of parts. I'm not fully sold on the idea of doing this build, but I'm very interested in the idea (not to mention the ammo prices). I still have a bunch of reading to do on the topic, and if anyone else has done this, or has considered it, I would love to hear your thoughts.
