Cool My AKM and Rusty (aka, yet another goddamn ANCorp AK thread)

So I've progressed some more on my AKM, and a LOT more on that Kraken AK that I wanted to build into something for CQB. Hell, I've done most of the work a long time ago, just haven't had a sunny morning off work to take pictures.

Some pictures do suck big time, I'm aware. Better ones some other time.

Thought I'd go over everything, an overview of both.

AKM

Parts list - External
TM AK-47 based
King Arms AK-74 metal body
King Arms AK-74 safely lever
DTP metal rear sight block
ICS re-enforced outer barrel
ICS bolt carrier
ICS 1000m rear sight
Element ribbed top cover
Element brick red pistolgrip
---Real steel parts:
Romanian AKM stock
Romanian buttplate
Romanian Trap door
Romanian Sling loop
Polish upper handguard
Polish gas pipe
Polish lower handguard
Romanian lower handguard retainer
Romanian AKM muzzle brake
East German front sight
East German takedown lever
Hungarian gas block

Parts list - Internal
Cyma Mechbox
TM hopup
SystemA hopup rubber
6.03mm tightbore
Element M110 spring
Element bearing spring guide
Area1000 metal bushings

External refinishing
All airsoft metal parts stripped and blued
Wood stripped and stained/clearcoated

What needs to be done
Takedown lever needs to be made more stiff
Pistol grip needs to be dyed darker and made to have a less uniform finish

PICS

(Bipod just for show)











Rusty (Iraqi survival rifle)

Parts list - External
Kraken clear AK-47 based
Element AK-74 metal body
ICS AK-74 safely lever
ICS ribbed top cover
King Arms metal front end
King Arms pistolgrip
Unknown steel AKM muzzle brake
Unknown laminated AK-47 foregrips
TM Krink front sight
Cyma underfolding stock with folding hardware

Parts list - Internal
So far - stock internals, cut inner barrel

External refinishing/work
1st -All metal parts stripped and aluminum blackened (except top cover and muzzle brake, those were blued)
2nd - All metal parts worn down
3rd - All metal parts corroded/rusted with saltwater
4th - All metal parts washed and polished
5th - Wood scratched, "engraved", and soaked in water a bit

Outer barrel was shortened significantly, and the front sight and gasblock/pipe combo was replaced with a TM AK Beta spetsnaz front sight for a nice Krinked look.

Metal body had fullstock tabs dremelled off, and modified extensively to take a Cyma underfolding stock (what a pain in the ass)


What needs to be done
Stock up down wobble needs to be cured (not a big problem)
Open hole in rear of body needs metal plate installed (already have plate, just need to attach and refinish)

PICS





















(Possible scare-shitless CQB setup )

Outdoor/Indoor Combo:


A "cleaner" Outdoor/Indoor Combo (AK-103 and Original TM AK Alpha 97 limited edition Spetsnaz AK):


All together (with trademark cat):


Unfortunately I sold off two of my other AK's before taking pictures (Black Kraken AK-47, and Dboys AKS-74)

I think that's it for now, better pics might come in a couple days, especially of the AKM. It's pics don't do justice what so ever.

As always, thanks for lookin'.

Cheers,
Alex

Depends on how hard I slam something onto the floor, about 20-30fps (chronographed).

Thanks gents.

It was too... complete. I love project guns.

But I now regret it, as I have a "dress up" project in mind for one. Maybe someday.

Red tape was to solidify the handguard, it started to wobble after I soaked it.

Those are two of the best AK builds I've seen yet, VERY nice (even though I'm not much of an AK guy), great attention to detail and very authentic looking.

What is it with cats getting into pics anyways, always annoyed me in the past.

'rusty' is by far the most accurate and 'real' airsoft AK I've seen. I'm a stickler for getting the 'feel' of milsim.. that is AWESOME. The wear on the gun makes it.

what do you have written in russian on the grip and those are some of the nicest AKs i have ever seen, and i am an AK hater. You make me want to get an AK. That being said, i think on your first rifle you should have a wood pistol grip if you can, that was it will look even better IMO.

Umm, I'm AK ignorant, but I think there should be a folding stock on it, right?
