Construction Notes

What do you need to build? That depends on what you are trying to do. I am trying to put this "guide" together not as the final word, but as a quick-reference guide to show what the individual components require for assembly.


Most of this information has been collected from various sources and forums on the Internet.

I have labeled the different sections according to assembly:

  • Receiver
  • Trunion (aka Frame Mount or Mounting Block)
  • Barrel Assembly
  • Trigger Guard
  • Rear Stock 
  • Fire Control Group (FCG)

This information is partially a loose reference and partial tutorial.  The focus of this information is tailored to address "how-to" and "what is needed" questions when building from an 80% metal blank and a parts kit.  It explores construction from a budget perspective.
