  1. Krink Barrel Identification Assistance

    I found a 8.25inch Krink Barrel at a show for a good price and figured I would take a chance on it. The only information I have is that they think it is a Bulgarian barrel. The stamping is Bulgarian (at least what is left of it). Doesn't have a gas port drilled (which is weird cause it looks...

  3. Barrels

    General Discussion
    I recently got my hands on some barrels that are for milled receivers with the breech end being threaded. From what few markings I could find, these barrels are either Polish Combloc, Bulgarian, or Russian production, but a buddy of mine that sold them to me insists that they’re Russian, and...
  4. Will pay for stainless steel barrel, chamber, firing pin, extractor, etc. for my PSL

    Dragunov and FPK/PSL
    Hello fellow marksman rifle enthusiasts.

  5. K-Var Gas Port Angles

    Build It Yourself
    Was looking at the 7.62x39 barrels on K-Var's website. Only one of them explicitly states it is drilled for a 90 degree gas port. The other two (SKU AK332C and AK601) do not state the gas port angle. I am getting crickets out of K-Var. Does anyone happen to know the angle? I am looking at these...

  8. Best US Made 7.62 Barrel

    Was looking at a Maadi parts kit but it is missing the barrel. Who in the US makes the best 7.62 barrel? It is going to be more of a shooter than a historical piece. Has anyone tried Faxon's barrels?

    Hey ya'll I was out shooting the other day and noticed my handguard fell off. There always was a fair amount wiggle room for the retaining cap.
