To sum it up.

Finding the right screw to fit - a bitch, even with some old AK parts and screws, I still had trouble finding a perfect fit screw to fit here and there.

You run into fitment issues, never expect anything to fit exact, always some modding here and there.

Cost is really a bugger, I could've just bought a Cyma AKM in Canada for 350-400$.
I'd say I've spent $600-700 ish, and it still requires a small little more.

If you really want something unique, and to keep you busy, go for it.
I love not having a specific brand gun. And to boot, seeing it start as just little peices here and there come together, it's amazing.
hehehe for the screw thing... i got myself 80$ worth of metric screws from m2 to m5, self tappers, stainless, hex head bref i'll never have a screw proble again! lol
