    Type 1 barrel, where to buy one?

    Im in need of a virgin US made barrel for a type 1, anyone know who sells them? Type 2 barrels have a slightly different profile for the gas block and handguard retainer. Thanks in advance.

    A member here was planning on sending an example to be copied, but I don't know if that happened.
    Want to buy:
    1966 East German AKM kit
    TYPE 1 kit
    North Korean kit
    Serbian M76 sniper vest (M-99 A3)


    If I was not on some government watch list, I'd be insulted.

    If someone wants to coordinate a deal with AK Builders, ill loan them my shot out Type I barrel to use as a pattern.

    I worked with Marty the chief machinist at AKBuilder a few years ago.
    I loaned him a T3 Russian and a Zastava M64 barrel when they were starting to produce those barrel types.

    Even though he had the dimensional drawings., having an actual barrel to compare was beneficial.

    Dunno if they have a market for T1 barrels but if it is a simple mod from a T2/ T3 they might go for it.

    Shouldn't be much more than a radius correction and some Z lengths changed on the journals. Sent an email.
