Meridian defense AK clone!

Soooooo I really want a meridian defense pestilence build, but I didn’t have $1599.99. Well that just means I have more time than money.


Well I figured I would start with the brake.





Now to put my personal touch on the build. The meridian guys where cool with me doing this build and out of respect I came up with a different logo.

It has the octopus/punisher I was going for.
Now to cut down the barrel to 14.5” obviously I have to pin and weld the muzzle device to make it 16.2” long.

Thread it for M14x1 LH thread.

Time to cut a crown.
You can see it needed it.

Now it’s time to put everything together. I got battlefield pickup furniture from akm_surplus on Instagram.
Now time for a little sanding to match the look of the steel to the wood.

Now I just have to find time to shoot it LOL!

$650-$700 all said and done. Just took a long time and I made some tooling to remove and repopulate the barrel.

It just took ten years and saving up my change every week and every tax return and all the stuff I sold to buy used equipment.
You can do it too Brother it just takes time.
