I Built This AK-47 - It's Legal and Totally Untraceable

The wooden and steel parts I need to build my untraceable AK-47 fit within a slender, 15-by-12-inch cardboard box.

I first lay eyes on them one Saturday morning in the garage of an eggshell-white industrial complex near Los Angeles.

Foldout tables ring the edges of the room, surrounding two orange shop presses.

The walls, dusty and stained, are lined with shelves of tools.

I'm with a dozen other guys, some sipping coffee, others making introductions over the buzz of an air compressor.

Most of us are strangers, but we share a common bond:

We are just eight hours away from having our very own AK-47 — one the government will never know about.
