Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

AK47 flats

#1 Post by Patman1951 » Sat Oct 28, 2017 12:07 pm

Does anyone have experience with welding the AK47 flats? I have been given a couple of flats that look like they were laser cut and have tabs on them to keep them together when bent into shape. Then would need to be welded. What look like dark lines on the flat are the laser cut areas.
Thanks,
Pat

I welded my flat after bending it.
It was very easy and there are lots of tutorials online.
The rifle shoots good and operates flawlessly.
