    Dumb Question about ak74 front trunnion

    I'm having major trouble finding an AK74 Front Trunnion. Are 47 Front Trunnions relatively interchangeable? I know some things won't find certain countries styles but broadly speaking will a 47/M fit onto an ak74? I'm having a lot of trouble finding info on that. Thanks for any help posted!

    you have to do a little miling.
    basically making the area the mag sets in a little wider and taller also a little frontward.
    the bullet guide needs switch as well.
    if you have access to a mill and some carbide slot cutters 1/2 or 3/4" diameter youre all set.
    nice to have a 74 trunnion in your hand to copy though.
    edit: should mention the akm chamber journal unless you get a late 70s izzy will be 23mm

    i'd just find ak-74. there was a virgin ak-74 trunnion in the akfiles calssifieds. un-numbered - really got my hands itchy. look for it. or just keep checking classifieds on akfiles. there are few people out there that regularly list ak-74 part outs.

    I just sold a handful of AK74 trunnions, OEM barrels etc., in the past month or so.
    While 74 parts are getting more scarce., you should be able to search the www and/ or AK sites for a trunnion.
    This site is slower on the marketplace. I sold the bulk of the 74 parts elsewhere.

    K-VAR has them at $69 I believe.

    Most genuine AK74 barrels have a 22mm chamber end journal size.

    In stock at KVAR with bullet guide riveted in place. $100.
    https://www.k-var.com/trunnion-block...senal-bulgaria

    They have a cheaper one but be advised that it is for 23mm chamber end journal.
    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    WTB Late East German 7.62 top cover and gas tube numbered 687.

    Oh., I didn't read the small print on that Romanian 23mm trunnion.
    $100 is pricey for an AK74 yrunnion. But those parts have dried up. Too bad he missed all that stuff I sold.
