    No, I've done worse. I think the worst part is the in and out with the mag to reset the hammer (firing block?), what ever it's called. :lol3

    Here's a vid of the MK3 and my second time breaking it down and reassembling it.

    over the years and I have NEVER had the need to take them apart. Just squirt some carb cleaner through the action if it gets really gummed up for godssakes. Usually good old Hoppes #9 and a toothbrush does just fine.

    That's my routine. I love the gun but I'm afraid I won't anymore when I have it in pieces all over the kitchen table!

    The MK 3 is a bear to reassemble at first but with a little practice it gets easier. Worth the trouble for a fine piece.

    Yeah, and I'm one of those nut jobs who cleans everything after each use. It's my little OCD complex. :lol3

    One another note. Thought I'd throw up a photo of something else that I shot recently, disassembled, cleaned and put back together till the next time.

    I have an FN FAL, an AR15, and always wanted an AK but dragged my feet. I was lucky enough to purchase all the parts to build one right before the price gouging and craziness of mid-December.

    Have any of you guys assembled an AK? I don't have a riveting tool and can't justify buying them for one build. It will be my only AK so a screw build is out of the question.

    I got this beauty on a trade about 4 months ago. Didn't know it at the time but after researching it because it has no manufacturer markings it is a very early import Norinco gun imported by GLNIC before they started marking them with the manufacturer. Gun was NIB unfired.

    Here is the only real info I could find on it......

    They were reportedly an import company owned exclusively by the PLA. Guangdon Lingnan Ind. Corp GLNIC LA CA is "GLNIC Corporation of America", a company based in California, but owned by the People's Liberation Army of China. GLNIC may stand for "Guangdon Lingnan Ind. Corp." or "Guangdon Lingnan Import Company". The letters "CGA" may be stamped on the trunnion ahead of the serial number on early-import GLNIC AK47S rifles, and it appears that CGA was the exporter for pre-1989 GLNIC-imported AK47S and SKS rifles (later rifles were exported by Norinco).

    Take care with some of that stuff....it will melt the plastic grips into a sticky goo.....I don't remember the brand but it just totally manguled a snappy screwdriver handle on me. I will admit I have a few that I HATE to take apart....there are a couple of "brake free" type products made for guns that are plastic safe that I use....cost is about the same.

    I picked one up a couple of weeks ago. I've only ran about 100 rounds through it, but I'm very impressed. Pretty darn accurate, and it fits my hand perfectly.
    The slide doesn't fit super tight, but I bet it still shoots if I drop it in some crud.

    I think I paid less for my first house than the total he's got sitting there.:huh

    Nice collection, but, all the same style? The man has a one track mind. :lol3

    The only one I like from that collection is the Smith without the lettering on the slide. The others look like billboards.

    Having a hard time deciding if I want one of these, a Steyr M9 or a Glock 19 as a IDPA/carry gun.

    Also was looking at a TLR-1 and I'm glad to see it doesn't stick way out past the barrel like other monstrocities.
