I saw that import ammo ban coming . I've sold/traded all the x39 rifles except a CZ-527 my wife deer hunts with and it won't run dry for a long time.



I only own a couple 7.62x39 guns, An AR and an AK both guns I assembled.
I can change out the caliber on the 7.62x39 at any time by simply swapping the barrel OR by swapping the upper.
I'll keep the AK since I put it together out of new parts including a Nodak Spuds receiver.

I've got something like a K of brass cased ball ammo and another 500 brass cases. I have some .308 125ish projectiles but I'm light on .311 ~125 grain projectiles.

7.62x39 has never been a caliber I've been particularly fond of.

Picked up a few Grendel parts recently.

18" Faxxon barrel and BCG.

Gas tube and B.A.D lightweight gas block. 3X Kaliban 10 round mags.

I've got a Midwest handguard already and a spare upper.
Leaves me needing a charging handle, a compensator and maybe building a dedicated carbine lower for it.
IF I build a lower for it I expect I'll LaRue trigger it as I think I've still got a spare in the parts bin.

Probably try to put a Radian Raptor charging handle on this one and may upgrade a couple other builds that I put together the past year or so.

Probably put a medium power scope on it.

Given the state of inflation, the costs of food and fuel and housing in particular, and the fact that there appears to be nobody awake at the nation's helm I haven't been too active in either acquisitions or builds. I did pull the trigger on a few more firearms related tools right before the latest push by the national socialist democrat party for more gun control but right now I'm sort of in a holding pattern...

I keep looking, but prices on what I'm usually interested in seem to be still jacked up 20% or more and ammo's still stupid expensive. I've got a few more tools in mind and a few more parts but I'm not sure about full up firearms...
