KALASHNIKOV BUILDS, REPAIRS AND CONVERSIONS


We can build it. From historically accurate copies to custom, modernized Kalashnikovs for any purpose.


We perform a wide range of AK related work in-house. Whether it be aligning canted front/rear sight blocks or addressing headspace issues on your current firearm to new custom builds, de-bans and conversions. We also install an incredible number of aftermarket components including but not limited to the Sabrewerks 13 LLC Kalashnikov Optics Platform (KOP), the JMAC GBC-13 gas block and modular rear trunnion (MRT), the KNS Precision Inc. adjustable gas piston system and traditional Warsaw Pact pattern optics rails.

If you have an AKM parts kit or variant thereof, we can build it properly, using dimples and rivets as intended. Milled AK47 builds on machined receivers such as Sharps Brothers, CNC Warrior, TortTort etc. are also available. We stock a full selection of parts kits and 922r components. You may chose to provide all of your parts for a build or none at all, sourcing them directly from us. We use premium stamped receivers from Childers Guns LLC, ReCreator Blanks and NDS but can typically build using any quality receiver/component you may have or personally specify for use on your project. Each and every firearm is built one at a time, to-order. We will take the time to address any options or questions to get you the right AK, of the best quality.

Do you own an older AK or ’94-04 Clinton ban-era variant in need of some attention? We can de-ban, repair, realign, refinish and work with your existing rifle.


Meridian Ordnance LLC specializes in nearly all AK variants including milled (AK47 type II and III) and stamped (AKM, AK74, Saiga, Arsenal, VEPR, 100 series etc.) models as well as their commercial clones and cousins.

AK build services INCLUDE refinishing (Moly Resin is standard in your choice of “as new” or “battlefield pickup” option) and start at just $299. If you have a kit that was imported post-2007 and is missing a barrel, we can supply, fit and headspace any number of quality barrels that are available. Installation of a barrel in need of fitting and head-spacing starts at just $99.



Russian SAIGA rifle conversions are available from $299, as well as de-ban services on the ’94-04 ban era firearms such as the MAK90, NHM, MISR, MAADI, CUR, SAR and more.


De-ban services commonly consist of performing any number of operations, from threading the muzzle, adding the correct components or furniture, bayonet lugs, pistol grips, engraving and so on. If you own a ban-era AK variant, consider checking in on what we can do to add value and functionality back to your rifle. Undo what was done during the failed ’94 Assault Weapons Ban and create a better, more correct or practical AK in the end.



Meridian Ordnance LLC is a JMAC Customs certified Kalashnismith, a Sabrewerks 13 LLC Kalashnikov Optics Platform installer, and a KNS Precision, ULTIMAK, Sharps Brothers, Krebs Customs and VLTOR dealer.
