    AK-47 Barreled Receivers

    Classic Firearms is selling Polish AK-47 barreled receivers.

    I think I want one, but I don’t know what I can legally do with it.

    If I bought one, what can I do with it?

      I guess I should have followed my instincts. I received the e-mail today at 6:50 p.m. and did not think they would be sold out this fast.

      Their website did say, however, that they have been inundated with orders due to the events in Orlando.

        Easiest way to build that to be ny compliant would be to purchase the dust cover, fcg (fire control group), furniture, and bolt carrier, cut the gas piston off of the carrier, and run it is a single shot/bolt action. Other option would be to fix the mag in place. For all intensive purposes this is a complete firearm, no smithing required, but bear in mind it was built by century, so their disclaimer to check headspace should definitely be heeded. I would ensure that classic is willing to ship to ny and your ffl is willing to do the transfer, legally there is no reason not to, but everyone has to cover their ass. Also note, the ak headspaces on the bolt, not on the carrier, alot of people aren't aware that you can swap the carriers safely, as long as the carrier can accept the bolt (large stem, small stem, etc).

          Thanks for the advice, but I guess it will be a lot easier if I wait until I move to another state.

            I wouldnt say alot easier. You could complete this build in a ny compliant fashion with no tools other than a dremel tool. If you decide to do it and want any pointers let me know.

              Thank you for your offer of expertise. From what I read here and elsewhere, you really know your AK builds.

              I wouldn’t go the single shot/bolt action route, so I guess that leaves me with the fixed mag option .

              The initial Classic Firearms price point seemed attractive, but it seems that costs add up quickly when you have to bastardize the rifle.

              Is this the best option for me or is there a better option?

              Looking back, it kills me to think of all the Yugo AK’s I did not buy for less than $400.00 (pre-SAFE Act), because I was brainwashed into thinking they were junk, because many had a canted front sight.

                No problem. Sadly, there arent many good options left for AKs, the easiest would probably be to grab a Saiga and live with the sporter stock. A barreled receiver, like this or the Palmetto State Armory ones would be your next best bet, the only issues being Century doesnt have the best reputation for quality and PSA is new to the AK game, putting out an unvetted product that has already shown a few significant issues. For the average person to get set up to build AKs, you are looking at the cost of a new AK just to acquire the tooling you need. This cost can be drastically reduced by building your own tools, but that obviously isnt for everyone. Even buying parts kits, the price has increased drastically over the past few years, with the major benefit to building your own AK being that you can build it to a much higher standard than your average off the shelf AK you would buy at a store, albeit it at a similar or slightly reduced price.

                Personally, after building my own AKs, I can't imagine a situation where I would ever buy one again, because I love building them and I end up with a far superior rifle than I would otherwise be able to buy. But it is a labor of love, and alot of people get in over their head attempting an AK build after assembling their first AR. I am always willing to share info and insight for AK builds though, so everyone should feel free to hit me up if they need anything.

                  My gunsmithing skills are minimal, at best.

                  I have two Saigas, one 7.62 x 39, and one 308. I regularly contemplated buying a Saiga in 5.56/223, but I bought a Ruger Mini 14 and an Ares SCR instead.

                  I love Saigas (sporter stock and all), but I still feel left out because I never bought an AK.

                    Just clicked on email notification when back in stock. I would have bought this in a heartbeat had I seen it in time.

                      I would get a Thordsen stock and attach that. No reason to give up the semi auto or detachable mag. Get an AR buffer stock and grip attachment.

                        Wish I bought a saiga back when I was still able to. Could have bought one for $400 and stupid me for not doing it

                          Forgive my ignorance, but what is "milled" in this case?

                            The receiver is milled from a solid piece (ala original AK47) as opposed to the sheet metal 'stamped' receivers (ala AKM). From what I read, there's no difference in reliability or longevity. Milled usually has the 'lightening cut' rectangle on the right side.

                            That pretty much is the end of my knowledge of the differences, Matty and others can tell you much more.

                              I personally have a rifle with a pinned opfor archangel stock and a boar grip.The grip isn't the best for the AK but light years ahead of a spur since you will have complete control of the rifle.
