AK-47 Type III, circa 1954, Izhevsk Arsenal (SLR-100 based Replica)
Our second "Builder's Showcase" displays an excellent Type 3 AK-47 built by Dean Davison. Dean has built some of the most beautifully crafted AK rifles I have ever seen, and specializes in the early style AK rifle. This rifle is just one of a number of his outstanding milled receiver rifle projects, but it serves as a great showcase of his knowledge and skills as a gunsmith. It is quite obvious that Dean has an eye for fine detail!

We are proud to kick off a new series called "Builder's Showcase" with this article which presents the amazing talents of Thirtycal, who has no doubt built one of the best looking AK-103's we have ever seen. He has kindly allowed us to display his workmanship and has taken time to write a few words to help the do-it-yourself builder get a grasp on what is involved in such a project.
