I received delivery on my Fuller AK-47. Jim is fast becoming the premier AK builder in the world. The nice thing is that he is right here in the Vegas Valley.

Celebrating Jesus Birthday and taking posession of a Fuller AK......life is good!

I picked up my AK today and spent the day in dry fire drills while watching "Kalashnikov Rifle Gunfighting." The rifle is beautiful....the fit, the finish are everything that you would expect from a Fuller build. The action and the trigger are smooth as silk

The build was made with the following

"Never been fire" parts kit from 1978 Romanian with matching numbers.
Fuller rear sight
AK 100 stock
G-2 trigger group
NDS-1KP receiver
Moly resin over parkerized grey
Wolverine Flashhider
Bolton Gas block
Cut, crown, thread, silver solder barrel 16-1/4"
Four metal magazines refinished to match the gun

I've been concentrating so hard on my courses, it will be good to get back to the rifle. This is my first AK, but after watching Gabe's DVD, along with my extensive rifle training in the past.....I will be up and running with my new AK in record time.


Here you go,

Jim is a great guy to meet, and he is a knowledgable and skilled professional to work with. The jobs he has done for me have been a breeze to set up, and he takes the time to ask you all the right questions to ensure that you get a custom build suited to your needs. He converted a pair of my Saiga shotguns beautifully, and he is working on a pair of Romanian "G" AK rifles for me right now.

Jim Fuller and Rifle Dynamics AK-47 Build Review

As many of you know, I am a hard core “software” guy. My focus is training the body and mind to be the “true” weapon that it is. When it comes to “hardware”, I buy the best and only what it is that I need. I am the epitome of the “anti-gear queer.” Earlier this year I purchased a quality Romanian AK-47 “G” parts kit. This kit had never been fire, had matching numbers, and was bought before the prices began to sky rocket. I bought this kit for one reason….to get me a Fuller built AK. The reputation on the AK’s that Jim was building was impeccable. I had literally read hundreds and hundreds of reviews of Jim’s AK’s and had not heard one negative comment on his craftsmanship. These reviews were coming from guys that new their stuff, many of them being serious professionals that laid their lives on the line and demanded the very best tools to get the job done.

Since Jim is a friend of mine and lived right around the corner, I was able to go directly to him. He asked me what I wanted on my AK. I simply told him to build me the AK that he would build for himself. He showed me what he does to his rifles and it was right in line with the limited knowledge that I had accrued as I had watched his reputation grow. It was no more than a couple of minutes of discussions and planning and I knew that I was going to get an AK that I would treasure for the rest of my life. I helped label and box up my parts kit and stacked in a huge stack of labeled AK parts kits and went away, knowing that time was about to start moving very slowly, until the day that I got “the call.”

I got that call a couple of days before Christmas. I was able to pick my AK up the day after Christmas. Every detail on this rifle was exactly what I would expect from a Fuller build. The fit was tight, the finish was flawless, the action was smooth, and the trigger was crisp. I spent the next week polishing up on my rifle skills by watching DVD’s and dry practice. It was very nice to see how quickly the transition from the AR-15 platforms to the AK-47 could be accomplished. As I worked with the rifle, it became very clear the connection that I was going to have with this tool. It just felt right in every way. I am a very athletic guy and when my body feels good……I am rocking and rolling. This rifle fit me like it was made for me.

As soon as I took possession of that rifle, everyone that has seen it has wanted to shoot it. My family is not known for sharing my love of shooting and training……but they all wanted to go out to the desert to shoot that AK. We just got back and that AK has lit a fire under my family that no gun has ever lit under my family. The six of us shot the AK for around five hours. Not one hiccup! All of Fullers builds are sighted in before the owner takes possession. Mine was battled zeroed at twenty five yards, just as I would have zeroed it. The hits from one hundred yards were exactly what I was looking for. Not only was this rifle beautiful…..it was deadly accurate.

The Fuller rear sight is a huge improvement over the other AK’s that I have shot. The AK-100 folding stock is solid, comfortable, and lends itself to an outstanding cheek weld. The Bolton gas block and the cut down barrel reduce the weight at the muzzle, which lends itself to some very nice speed with this rifle. The G2 trigger group is by far the best trigger that I have ever seen on an AK.

Great rifle, great service, at a very fair price!

This is an AK that Mikhail Kalashnikov himself would drool over.

that sure is a beautiful rifle. So theoretically speaking, what would a build like that cost joe citizen, not his neighbor? :)
