I built the custom crow that was POTD like a year ago. This was another project I made in school. I recently had to sell it and I am sharing some of the pics. Its worth a shot since its not another AR build. It is as follows:

Maadi Ak47 build on Nodak Spud receiver with US chrome lined barrel. Rivets are good, buffer, Tapco G2 components, Magpul AK grip, synthetic forend and buttstock with custom QD cup, Ultimak gas tube scope mount (solid piece!), burris TRS 25, AK74 style muzzle device, and sling. This gun shoots great

Thanks JBC!

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    It must be a post ban Maadi no one would tacti cool a pre 89 Maadi and butcher it with rails and polymer stock. It kill the value.

      @Lance It appears to be a Maadi kit build. The receiver isn't a Maadi receiver. Also, he said it has a US barrel

    I wanted to share something with TFB a POTD that was different (not an AR). I used a Maadi kit and the tools from ak-builder on a 12-ton press while in school. I built it exactly the way I wanted it. The mount and sight afterwards to increase accuracy. The lessons learned are invaluable as I am able to apply them to guns that are similar in nature.

    I understand the different views people have of military firearms and I respect them. The evolution of firearms for warfare is the most efficient means to kill. A "tacticool" firearm may be just that, or it could be additional equipment that are trained with to enhance lethality. Whatever gives you the edge in a fight, take it.
