We offer classes to teach you how to build an AK type firearm! You will be shown how to create a mighty Kalashnikov type firearm from a mere parts kit using various methods and fixturing in our very own shop in Phoenix, AZ. We offer two types of classes:
Standard – $600
This class allows up to 5 students at a time and typically takes one day to complete. Prior to the class date all kits will have the populations completed and receivers prepped. The day will begin will riveting components to receivers, then reinstalling barrel assemblies, final assembly/fitting and test firing. This is geared towards people who want to be familiarized with the nuances of the platform and how/WHY it’s built/designed, and new builders who will most likely use pre-populated kits (most popular).
Advanced – $1200
This class is typically a one-on-one setting where a student is taught how to build a kit from the ground up. Taking up to two days, this class includes headspacing, populating, drilling/pinning components, receiver preparation, riveting, final assembly/fitting, and test firing. This is geared towards people who want an advanced knowledge of how/WHY the platform is designed/built and will most likely invest in tooling to build as a hobby or profession, or want to be intimately involved with the construction of their firearm. Regardless of the type of class taken they are currently scheduled by appointment, but typically are done on Sat/Sun. Each student will receive a debrief form via email following the class which outlines the tooling used, tooling recommended, and tooling sizes required for each build task to reference in the future.
