    Any ideas on how and where to start, what type of wood to use and stuff?
    Depends if you want to build it completely from a blank or start with one inletted for your rifles action (which makes it much easier).

    Looking for a cheap raised 1" scope ring for a flat top AR.(no handle). Any suggestions? I googled a few and not super excited.

    Cheap sort of says why. Weaver makes inexpensive rings that are not too shabby. They come in heights, so it is a good to have a idea how high of a ring that you will need. Weaver mounts and picatinny rails are compatible. There are also raisers that will attach to your rail and give your scope additional height. I think they come in different heights too. If you were near me, I have some 1" rings that I could give you if they worked.

    I figured a short cut on the barrel trunnion rivets. Rather then press things or grind out, I would wire weld the old rivets to the flats. Then use a tig to smooth things out. Cuts constuction time by about 1 hr.

    I did realize you can turn a M70 machined frame kit into a rivet job??
    I'll be interested to see any interim picture(s) during the build..

    Good Luck..

    You can, but it's a lot of work to machine down a milled receiver stub into a front trunnion.
    My kit shows a front trunnion with rivet heads cut off and remaining rivet bodies still in the trunnion locked in by the bbl.
    Then there is a long rivet on the bottom that has to be carefully removed by through drilling.
    A bit of a PITA

    Interesting and valid (Saves removal of the bbl to depress the rivet stubs still in the trunnion and the remaining long rivet through).
    Personally I prefer a rivet build to remain pure to the design (Riveting is also a fun rediscovered art ).
    Say, Hollis - did you rivet your Semi-MG42 or weld it? I'd like to know how you would rivet that baby.

    Yes, I have a good press and riveting kit w/squeezer. I added new rails, but used the wire welder/Tig method. You can form the welds to look like rivet heads. Hard part is the bolt conversion and trigger assembly on the MG42. The easiest conversion was the Bren Gun and RPD. The 1919, was next in line. Machining the inner parts was cutting tool expensive. I was too lazy to set up a cooling flush when I did it. You need to make a riveting jig for the inside of the rails. It will support both rails and allow a press to do it's magic.

    Mind posting a photo of your riveting kit & squeezer (if different from AK types)
