Virgin Build AK-47 Yugoslavian M70AB2 Stamped Receiver Yugo M70 AB2

*****Fixing/Building/putting together your own guns can/may cause serious harm, up-to and including death! That is a good reason
why professional/qualified gunsmiths exist, make use of them. Also know all your laws, its amazingly easy to get into trouble with the
CADOJ or even the BATFE. This thread of mine is for pure educational purposes. It is not my intention in anyway to get you to
follow.*****
Virgin Kit = Parts that have never been assembled into a working firearm.
Here is a build for a Yugo Under-folder VIRGIN kit. For this build I have used a stamped/bent flat receiver. This rifle will
be CA compliant, Detachable magazine capacity removed, fixed stock pinned open OR muzzle device attached so the OOL
is 30" or greater.
For illustration purposes and the fact that I often forgot to take pictures, I will be using picture from other builds.
Features and regulations specific for California are NOT mentioned/listed, as i go along because it is also meant for some
folks from other states.
Prerequisite: Meant for folks that have already completed a build or two from a de-milled kit. Have good mechanical
skills, tools and pertaining knowledge.
I will be skipping over all (or most of) steps that one would go through (building and refinishing) while
completing/building a de-milled kit. This means we will not be touching on Magazine fitting, mag catch and trigger guard
riviting. Trunion fitting and rivitings, Painting/bluing or finishing the rifle (wood or metal). I have kept this build as
simple as I possibly could, without the use of a mill or lathe!
This is the kit I will be completing... Bought back-in-the-day and it included the barrel, rivits and all.. everything but the
receiver.

This kit will look like this when done.. I got the below photo from here http://akpartskits.com
/cart/index.ph...&products_id=6 (not plugging them, I have no idea who they are, just used their photo so I thought I
should list them..)
AGAIN this photo BELOW is NOT mine. Its from this web site. Yes the kit comes with FA parts that YOU/I discard/resell
on GB.

Receiver and Trunions
Crimping/crushing rivits is the same as in the demilled kit so I will run over this fast.
Here the trunion holes were slightly small (for AKbuilder rivits) so I ran a drill through them.

Now install the trunions in the bent receiver and line holes up. For a Yugo M70AB2 you will have to drill an additional
hole in the bulge of the trunion. Most receivers have the hole drilled so just center punch and drill away.
Here the receiver is almost complete with all rivits and trunions, including the Mag release/trigger guard and the pistol
grip nut.
This came out pretty squared-up and decent.

Installing a "bullet guide".
If your trunion already has a bullet guide installed, you may skip this part.. (probably the only time you will install a
bullet guide is when you decide to go with a different trunion (that is stripped/New/Virgin) or go with a new milled
receiver that does not have one installed - like in this case below..) If your kit came with a TRUNION (sheet metal
receiver kit/ Flat receiver kit), it came with a bullet button installed. So skip over to post # 8
There are different bullet guides for 7.62, 5.56 and the 5.45. You can reuse one from your de-milled kit

This is how it looks turned upside down. With the round rod at the bullet button face supported.
