Yup, exactly that. Image

To put the Magpul Zhukov furniture on, you need to remove that cap (in my case, sawed it off). I know they make bolt ones now but I'm thinking sometime in the future I'd rather just get an actual one put back in.

your probably looking about $ 65 to 75 bucks in labor plus the part, a bolt on one might be a better option if you are looking to save a few bucks

That doesn't sound too bad. I'll probably provide my own, its not like those caps are expensive. I'm sure Apex has a ton still.

Not bad price for labor at all.

It could be quick and painless, or it could involve soaking in Kroil for three days, and need every ounce of ass the press has to give to get them off (cough, Chinese AK's, cough).

I fucking love AKs, I seriously wish they were as easy to build as ARs.

I guess if they were though, they'd lose that legendary durability.

Didn't Rent do an AK build party a few years back? I would love to build one.

my first one was back in 2000, then 2002, and again in 2005 and 2009, but those days are long over, no time now
